Tanier here, doing what I do best: assigning grades in November! There is some good data here about how much no-huddle teams are running and fourth down aggressiveness, plus my usual opinions.

The meatier stuff is later in the article, incluing my own explanation for the uptick in ACL tears. There is also a link to a feature about teams with offensive tackle trouble. I was busy.

Stay till the end for an old-fashioned Walkthrough-style Hitchcock tribute.

Thought I would get a jump on the midseason All Pro teams, and do something different, by ranking the best slot receivers, nickel backs, and so on in the NFL in the first half.

Breakdowns of Ravens-Steelers, Jets-Patriots, and more, plus jokes about waterbongs and Wings records.

It has been a busy week for me, with a bunch of historical articles and a toe-dip into the whole "Redskins" thing. But nothing stops the previews, which take a look at some major divisional rivalries with waning interest ... after the Colts-Broncos relationship drama.

History buffs: relive some of the worst quarterback disasters of the modern era! I use the Bills situation as an excuse to go back and look at the 1984 Bears, 1991 Eagles, and other teams that had to call people off the golf course or out of the office supply superstore to play quarterback. Jim McMahon's injury reports make up 35% of the word count.

A closer look at how the 49ers, Patriots, and Ravens are getting by with their depleted receiving corps. Some are doing better than others. Also, do-it-yourself offensive coordinator kits for those who dare to enter the altered state that is Todd Haley.

Some usual suspects are rounded up this week, from DeAngelo Hall to Brandon Weeden. But there is also Jets optimism and some famous tuba players.

Hooray! Another article about going for it on fourth down, with which to poison Mike Smith's brain! But this one is armed with years of Football Outsiders data, and it breaks down the plays which have been most successful on 4th and short. That way, you can figure out what Mike Smith is doing wrong (besides failing to mount a pass rush or hire defensive backs who can tackle or developing decent special teams units or ...)
