During the offseason, there is a lot of time to kill. Some people take holidays, some people focus on the draft and some people watch a lot of really bad TV. Me? I spend my time writing about cornerbacks.
Analysis of the cornerback position is more reliant on a player's reputation and the narrative surrounding that player than any other in today's NFL. Because most of their work comes off camera and because analysts during the season have more important things to focus on, there isn't a mainstream avenue for in-depth cornerback analysis.

Panthers tackle Jordan Gross will call it a career. The No. 8 overall pick in the 2003 draft exits after 162 starts, three Pro Bowls, and one first-team All-Pro selection. Carolina has a huge hole to replace.

You may remember Andreas Shepard's article with estimated DVOA ratings going back to 1950. Over on Chase Stuart's Football Perspective site, they've put together a couple of tables with all of the estimated ratings for all 1,638 teams. Note these are all estimated ratings, rather than a mix of estimated and actual ratings like we ran here at Football Outsiders; therefore the 1962 Packers are on top, not the 1991 Redskins.

Are the best defenses against play action the best against regular passes too? How much impact does play action really have in an NFL game, and does it correlate from year to year?
