Over at Coltzilla, staff writer Jacob Crocker does a bang-up job providing charting-style statistical reports after each game. Especially interesting -- at least to me -- is the weekly info about each quarterback's average time from snap to pass. Kind-of-shocking revelation: Colt McCoy got rid of the ball in Week 2 about as fast as Peyton Manning did on his average pass in 2010. Not-so-shocking revelation: A musket fires faster than Kerry Collins.
The reports seem to come out each Friday, so I guess that means Crocker's breakdown of the Steelers game will be up on the site later today. The link above is to his Week 2 analysis. Here's Week 1.
