In this week's Scramble for the Ball Best Bets, Al told you a bit about Anthony Brancato and his gambling statistics that show how warm-weather teams often fail to cover in cold weather December games. Anthony's been kind enough to expand upon that idea for us in this guest column. Fear this, o Dolphin and Ram fans.

Even though Gregg Easterbrook has left us for the greener pastures of NFL.com, we know that the discussion threads we provided during his short stay at our site were very popular. Therefore we're providing the unofficial official discussion thread of Tuesday Morning Quarterback each week. You also can use this space to discuss King Kaufman's interview with Gregg at Salon.com today. Plus, our first NFL cartoon!

Here they are, the entries to our Homage to Peter King Contest! Like we did with TMQ, we've constructed an entire MMQB column paying tribute to Peter's obsessions like the Red Sox, Starbucks, and high school field hockey. Come enjoy this tribute to America's most latte-addicted football columnist.

Yes, Gregg is leaving us for NFL.com, and we thank him for helping our site grow in the last month. His official announcement is here, as well as some comments about what's going on with our site, and pointers to a few of our features you may not be familiar with if you just joined us. This thread is also the place to discuss today's TMQ, since NFL.com doesn't have discussion threads.

This week, Ian and Al do not talk about the Giants and Bucs. OK, they do. But they also discuss the Colts, Pats, Raiders, Panthers, Rams, and Madden 2004. Comment here on this week's Scramble, or anything else related to this week's games, including your office pool and your fantasy start/bench decisions.

One of the most debated decisions in football is when to go for a two-point conversion. But is it possible that coaches don't go for the two-pointer enough? That's the theory of Christopher Moses.

a.k.a. The Road to Disaster and Back. Geoff Larson of VikesGeek.com analyzes the problems of the Minnesota defense, which can be traced to poor drafting and free agent signings. And yea, did the people of Minnesota shudder when they heard the name "Dimitrius Underwood."

Last week, FootballProject.com wrote that teams might be better off spending less money on their quarterbacks. After looking at a more comprehensive data sample, Richie Wohlers has his own thoughts.

Since Football Outsiders launched, we've compared players to the league average on a play-by-play basis. But what about the value of a player like Ricky Williams who runs near league-average but with amazing durability? Borrowing from baseball analysts, we introduce a stat that combines quality with quantity - and as an added bonus, we've translated it into actual points. Plus, the first 2003 player rankings and directional rushing stats.
