Our friend William Krasker begins his regular weekly analysis of NFL strategy using his complicated Dynamic Programming Model. Among Bill's contentions: Steve Mariucci screwed up by not going for two when Detroit went ahead 19-14, the Dolphins punted three times on 4th-and-1 when they should have gone for it, and Joe Gibbs should have gone for a touchdown from the Tampa 2-yard line at the start of the second quarter. Go give Bill's site some love, his stuff is excellent.
Mike and Tom's tour of the league gets musical! Listen to the strangely up-tempo Blinded by the Luck, the haunting melancholy of The Schiano Man, and the endless march of the Saints.
