After the debacle of their opening drives during the playoffs, I did a post for Niners Nation looking at what DVOA and our drive stats (thanks to Jim Armstrong) had to say about the matter. In addition to that main story, stats-savvy FO readers would probably be intrigued by the subplot: Even in a split as granular as opening offensive possessions, there's a stark contrast between what a drive-level statistic says and what a play-level statistic says.

As actual NFL football returns to our lives, we have observations on good quarterback play in Dallas, bad quarterback play in Denver, the Olympics, baseball, taxes, and mermaids.
