SITE NEWS: 2012 Wisdom of Crowds

Unless you get sadistic pleasure out of watching Richard Bartel short-arm out routes, last night's Hall of Fame game lacked entertainment. Not to worry, loyal FO reader, NFL entertainment returns today in the form of our "Wisdom of Crowds" feature. Over the next four weeks, we'll use our @fboutsiders Twitter account to get your fantasy projections for a player or two each day.

At the end of each week, I'll compile the responses, and have a post the following week about what our readership had to say. Last year, you were pretty darn prescient.

So, if you want to participate, make sure to follow us on Twitter, and check in every day for the next month.

Dolphins Part Ways With GM Jeff Ireland

If we're going to use the past two installments of Football Outsiders Almanac to trash the Dolphins for Jeff Ireland's continued employment, then it's only fair that we give them kudos for ending said employment. I, for one, am kind of shocked that this came on the heels of an 8-8 season; not because Ireland doesn't deserve it, but because accepting mediocrity has been entrenched in the franchise for the better part of two decades. So, again, kudos to Stephen Ross, and congratulations Dolphins fans. There's finally the potential for your long NFL nightmare to be over.

Bayes Theorem and the New York Giants

Friend of FO Chase Stuart applies Bayes Theorem to a current NFL event. In our football-analytic minds, however, the meaning of this column should be much more important than that.

FO 10th Anniversary: Tight Ends

Tony Gonzalez is top of the line by any measure, and top-of-the-line blocking tight ends are (unsurprisingly) singled out with Freddie Jones as poor performers.
