Writers of Pro Football Prospectus 2008

20 Apr 2009


Residual Prolixity. It is only updated occasionally, but it's by Outsider NewsToTom. AFAICT, he's the only guy out there who reviews football books. He'll also occasionally act as an aggregator. In this capacity, he turned me on to Smart Football. I'm not that much of an NCAA fan, but I enjoy Chris's site and the game theoretic approach he uses. A similar site for the pro game is Advanced NFL Stats.

With regards to other sports, FO's partners cover baseball, hoops, and now hockey. I like baseball most of those three and know of a few other sites that might interest readers: Baseball Think Factory was where I first learned of FO. That's more of a news site, ala Extra Points, the last few years. Hardball Times has more original content. But if you are looking for hardcore, statswonk analysis, this is where Tom Tango and others hang out.

It is; esp for the stats. That was an oversight on my part.

For another take on film-study data, check out Pro Football Focus. Like FO, they're after a more objective evaluation than you find in most mainstream media outlets. A good read, and occasionally fun to compare to FO, especially when it comes to player rankings.

I've bookmarked these guys as I found it interesting in my brief sojourn there this morning. Thanks for the link. They seem to have snap counts/participation on their site too, which many people seem to be after.
