Here's a catch-all thread for discussion of this week's posts on the Football Outsiders FOX blog. Covered this week: similarity scores for Charlie Frye and Alex Smith, Good Rex Grossman vs. Evil Rex Grossman, establishing the run still isn't important, and why Mike Tanier loves Thanksgiving high school football.

Can we do an Extra Point on something that isn't linkable? Len Pasquarelli has put together a great all-star team of lesser-known players over at ESPN.com. The rules are simple: players must be in their third year or later, they cannot be first-round picks, and you cannot include anyone who has been to the Pro Bowl as a positional player. This is the sort of thing that should spur awesome FO reader debate -- except it's a flash doo-hickey and I have no idea how to link it. So, sorry ESPN, we're going to discuss your team without actually sending you traffic.

Few NFL rivalries are as bitter as Denver vs. Kansas City. As they get ready to meet in the NFL's first-ever "third" Thanksgiving game, we figured it was the perfect time to post our long-awaited look back at the year Denver and Kansas City were the two best teams in the NFL -- which is also the earliest year for which DVOA currently exists.

The new DVOA ratings shift things around a bit. The Giants and Colts fall, while the Jaguars, Panthers, and Browns rise. Wait a minute, did you say Browns?

Rex Grossman: the king of making blowouts even more lopsided.

This week, Drew Brees had over 500 yards passing. The best quarterback DPAR of the year? Not even close. LaDainian Tomlinson, on the other hand, was just as good as you think he was. Here's the usual review of the day's performances using FO stats, plus a totally unprovoked rant about roughing the passer penalties.

Is Charlie Frye really as bad as everyone say’s he is? Aaron Schatz uses similarity scores to find out if it is time for Cleveland to give up and find a new quarterback of the future.
