Whither Randy Moss?

Every so often I go looking through the referral logs, and visit some of the blogs that link to us. Here's one from reader Pacifist Viking (a name you might recognize from the discussion threads), and he looks at which teams might actually want Randy Moss when he inevitably gets traded out of Oakland in 2007. I really should do this more often; one of the original goals of Extra Points was to link to more local papers and blogs, rather than just lots of ESPN.com stuff.

Packers Release Ahmad Carroll

I guess playing like crap during a nationally broadcast game is not a good idea. The Wisconsin writers were calling for this, and they got it. Seriously, though, was Carroll that bad? I don't mean "was Carroll so bad that they had to take away his starting job and sign Charles Woodson," because the answer to that one is clearly "yes." But unless I'm mistaken, the Packers are on the hook for Carroll's salary for this season. That's a sunk cost. Most teams carry five cornerbacks.

2006 Quick Reads: Week 4

Here's this week's look at the best and worst performances of the week by DPAR, delayed a day due to the Jewish holiday. That's right, DPAR -- this week we add in opponent adjustments for the first time. It was a big week for quarterbacks named Marc(k) and a bad week for quarterbacks recovering from ACL injuries. Also: Is Reggie Bush the NFL's worst running back when it comes to actual running? (By the way, DVOA ratings are also delayed due to the holiday, and Any Given Sunday is delayed because Ned had some travel problems this weekend.)
