Painting with a broad brush, fumble recoveries are a fairly random event. The Mathlete refines the analysis.

Packers' left tackle Bryan Bulaga tore his ACL during Saturday's Green Bay "Family Night" scrimmage and is probably done for the season. Bulaga's transition from right tackle to left was by no means guaranteed to go smoothly, but he was still the Packers' best tackle. Aaron Rodgers can help cover for that line's problems against mediocre and bad defenses, but it's the kind of issue that I would bet gets magnified when we get to the postseason. At least the Packers now have the whole season to figure out their line and get some cohesion between those players.

Fans of Walkthrough will enjoy my notes from the road, I hope: a mix of observations about prospects, weird drills, and misadventures on the Lincoln Highway.

Using DVOA splits based on our charting data, we've solved the mystery of Josh Freeman's disappearance in Weeks 12-17. Turns out it he acquired an acute case of blitz-induced paranoia.

This is a really good idea. Ted Bartlett of Denver Broncos blog "It's All Over Fatman" has come up with an idea to describe defensive schemes using a series of letters, as if they were personalities in the Myers-Briggs Indicator. You end up with descriptions that are much more detailed than just "3-4" vs. "4-3," not to mention more applicable in a league where teams now have to play nickel or dime the majority of the time. The splits:
Stack (2-gap) vs. Penetrate (1-gap)
Downhill run D vs. Flow run D
Man vs. Zone
Coverage-oriented vs. Blitz-oriented

Bill Connelly, in addition to the work he did on the college football section of Football Outsiders Almanac 2013, also found time to write another book this offseason. Study Hall: College Football, Its Stats and Its Stories is on CreateSpace now, and will hit Amazon later this week. Obviously I am biased as I know Bill and enjoy editing his work thoroughly, but he is as good as it gets in the college football field.

Bill Barnwell checks in with a look at the general manager tree branching out from Green Bay, and examines the total value of all the draft-day trades that Green Bay has managed to make under Ted Thompson.
