Two good columns from this weekend summarizing the problems of last weekend's Sloan Sports Analytics Conference. To be honest, it's gotten a bit stale, especially when it comes to sports that are not basketball. Click to read more and get links.

This week, PK keeps it short, speculating on the beginning of free agency. Michael Vick to the 49ers, huh? I'll believe it when I see it.

Film breakdowns and musings on Cortland Finnegan, Jason Avant, and others. My Patriots GM for a Day feature is also on Sports on Earth as of Monday, and it includes Cialis jokes.

Not a whole lot of activity so far, but I assume things will start moving a little faster as the deadline gets closer. Here's what we've got for now... (Click to read more.)

Everything you wanted to know about Alterraun Verner but were afraid to ask. Don't forget that me, Rob Weintraub, Russ Lande and Dan Pompeii are playing GM for a Day for all 32 teams, right though the start of free agency. Rob's Bengals essay should be on Sports on Earth now. I will be doing Chiefs (draft order was screwed up by individual schedules) tomorrow!

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.

One of the NFL's best receivers notched a -2.3% DVOA last year. Does a target-by-target breakdown show he was better than that?
