Two seasons. 22 Catches. 243 Yards. Is that what you expect out of the second pick in the draft? Injury or not, Michael David Smith says that Charles Rogers was just another big Matt Millen mistake.

The Bears have a new coach, a new running back, and an inexperienced young quarterback, but the biggest news in the off-season was their acquisition of Pro Bowl defensive end Adewale Ogunleye. Was it a good move? Michael David Smith takes a closer look at the Nigerian Fresh Prince of El Bear.

Our long-awaited look at previous seasons through the lens of DVOA, starting with 2001. This is the season where the ratings correlate the worst with actual wins, and so there are some strange doings, starting with the team that won the title. Join us as Aaron says something that will make his fellow Patriots fans very, very angry.

When the only saving grace of your entire football weekend is some fantasy success in the Sunday night game, you've had a bad one. That was the case for Russell Levine, who attempts to explain the poor showings by his favorite college and pro teams. Also this week, reviews of the latest TV broadcast innovations and the Miami Hurricanes new uniforms. Stripes across the backside? What would the Queer Eye crew have to say?

It's the debut for new Scramble co-author Vivek, as he and Al discuss Atlanta's odd obsession with Michael Vick's backup, ask how many assistant coaches it is possible for Joe Gibbs to hire, and pass judgment on the auction-drafted fantasy teams of the other Football Outsiders. Plus, the return of Best Bets.
Seventh Day Adventure is back for Week 2 as Vinny Gauri and Russell Levine analyze this week's college football slate, ponder the fate of Oregon State kicker Alexis Serna and discuss whether a plentiful supply of Munchos makes one well prepared for a nuclear disaster.

Since Will Carroll began writing about baseball injuries, the word "medhead" has been added to the sports fan lexicon next to the word "stathead." We had a chance to ask Will to apply his knowledge to some of the NFL's high-profile preseason injuries, as well as players recovering from 2003 injuries. Learn why the labrum will not doom Rich Gannon as it did Robb Nen, why David Boston's injury was not too surprising, and why we can stop making Fred Taylor groin jokes.

Every season in the NFL, teams come from nowhere to make the playoffs and other teams collapse just as suddenly. And yet everyone who writes about football makes predictions before the season even though there is almost zero chance of picking the correct Super Bowl teams. Who are we to resist such peer pressure? Each member of the Football Outsiders staff picks 12 playoff teams, a Super Bowl matchup, and a few other surprises for 2004. Oh, and drunken monkeys love Bill Parcells.

DVOA (Defense-adjusted Value Over Average) is the main statistic that Football Outsiders uses to rate both teams and players, but I know it can get confusing. You constantly see percentages and those four letters and have no idea what the heck we are talking about because you just discovered Football Outsiders yesterday. So for all those who have just started reading the site in the last couple of months, I wanted to give another explanation of how it works and why DVOA is better than standard NFL statistics. Plus, we've made various improvements to our numbers starting today, and those changes are described here.
