This week's ESPN article is on the performance of backs inside the 5-yard line, a topic I've discussed more than once but haven't written (from what I remember, at least) a full story on. This covers LaDainian Tomlinson's performance and the player who had a historically-bad performance inside the 5-yard line in 2009.
For those of you who aren't ESPN Insiders, don't fret; we'll be doing a detailed piece on this performance split with way more numbers in Football Outsiders Almanac 2010.
For some reason, the chart I sent along with LaDainian Tomlinson's career numbers didn't make it through. I've included that table below.

The Giants and Ravens set a record in Super Bowl XXXV with 21 total punts. That record may well be in jeopardy. But in this battle of top defenses, Carolina's superior and more flexible offense gives the Panthers the edge.
