There's so much football stuff over at ESPN.com that articles can get lost -- especially with the new redesign that actually has fewer links on the page than before -- so I wanted to point out this interesting piece out for anyone who missed it.

Others are more surprising, guys who were high school quarterbacks such as Eric Weddle and Owen Daniels.

Among the items analyzed: performance in close games, fumble recovery rates, dropped passes by opponents, dropped interceptions, and performance by opposing kickers.
