There are a lot of places in this article where I take a Football Outsiders concept -- like the fact that the 49ers defense ranks first in Second Level Yards -- and explain it in raw data form. And of course, when talking about the Patriots defense I bring up the old "field position" discussion. But it is still pretty interesting, even though the field position differential for the 49ers is even more interesting.

Enough about the Packers, Giants, Tebow, and the coaching carousel! Mike Tanier wants to talk about something else: Arian Foster documentaries, Raiders safeties, AFL legends, and Ricky Gervais.

This is really a Monday morning rant about multiple subjects. If you read my hemming and hawing about Mike Smith in Audibles, this represents my return to message.

I call these features "list gags," where I write a bunch of one-liners around a general theme, then turn it into a timeline or other organizer. Is there an actual name for them? Anyway, once more into the breach on some familiar gags, plus some early Andrew Luck jokes and as much politics as I feel comfortable adding (almost none).

An odd title for a round of diagrams. The last one is my favorite, showing the "spy" techniques the Steelers might use against Tim Tebow.

Tidbits from the Football Outsiders database: Flacco-to-Flacco, third-and-20 conversion rates, and the dreaded Whimper Waggle. Plus, which coaches belong in the Jauron Gang?

I package thoughts on the Lurie press conference, Norv Turner thoughts, and a roundup of other news in a burrito of strange observational something-or-another.

This week's Walkthrough will be a little light on diagrams, but the gang at the peacock will help me make up for it with an eight-play Wild Card magnum opus. Here are the first four!

Last full-size matchups of the year. Where does the time go? It seems like only yesterday I was watching lockout coverage.

Here's an NBC article with some cool diagrams. Justin Tuck has been dropping into coverage a lot lately, and the Giants have done some interesting things to keep the pressure on when Tuck is pretending to be a linebacker.
