I'll be doing a Reddit AMA today at 1:30pm EDT to help promote the Blogs with Balls conference in Toronto next weekend. Maybe this can help make up for the fact that I'm way behind on trying to answer reader e-mails or questions left in discussion threads. As for the conference itself, I'm appearing on a panel to discuss the use of sports analytics in the media; our old buddy Doug Farrar will also be there, on an NFL panel Friday. Link to come.
This year's update to the playoff drive stats show that the football gods may have been on Peyton Manning's side this time. Also: Cam Newton and Alex Smith enter the mix, and why we should be comparing Andrew Luck to Dan Marino.
