Tight end Quinn Sypniewski will miss the 2008 season after tearing a knee ligament in a training camp collision with linebacker Antwan Barnes. This is terrible news for Sypniewski, obviously, but the Ravens shouldn't have much trouble finding a replacement -- Sypniewski ranked 41st in DVOA and dead last in DPAR last season. Teammate Todd Heap ranked 14th in DVOA, so you can't blame Sypniewski's poor ranking on the quarterbacks.

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?
