Not to toot our own horns or anything, but the one and only Paul Zimmerman recommends a book in his mailbag today: "It's called Brassey's Pro Football Forecast ($21.95), and it's got a lot of meaningful, non-run of the mill analysis of each team, plus a lot of intricately evolved statistics you don't see elsewhere. Much hard work went into this book. Worth a look." That, in case anyone doesn't know, is the book we here at Football Outsiders co-wrote. Having heard it from Dr. Z, you know you need to order it now.
Possibly the closest Super Bowl matchup in history also poses the question: how much does it mean when certain aspects of an NFL team improve dramatically in the second half of the season?
