Hey, kids! Podcasts! Yesterday I recorded an episode of the Sports-Casters podcast to promote Football Outsiders Almanac 2014. This one actually got deep into a discussion of the different kinds of NFL analytics and how Football Outsiders differs from other site. Hopefully I didn't get loopy and say anything obnoxious. I'll have a couple of other podcast links in the next couple days that we'll add to this post as we continue to promote the book.

Part II of II. We actually measured here the chances of first-place teams dropping to 6-10 or worse, not their chances of finishing fourth this year, which does explain how Indianapolis can end up second on this list. Let's be honest -- even if they somehow flop to 6-10, the Colts aren't finishing last in that division. The clearly most likely first-to-worst team is Carolina.

Time for another edition of America's favorite game show, "try to figure out the language of new NFL contracts." Right now, all we know is that Andy Dalton has been signed to a "six-year, $115 million" extension. How is it structured? Can the Bengals get out of it if Dalton doesn't improve his game? How does this contract compare to the one Colin Kaepernick recently signed? Right now, who knows? Bring on the leaked details, baby.

We simulated the season moving Arizona around to every division to see what happened. The result? Their Super Bowl odds would go up 60 percent in the AFC South. It's also good these days to live in the AFC North and NFC East. The NFC West, not so much.

Any team can win the Super Bowl in any given year. What would it look like for the league's worst team to somehow win it?
