FO in the NY Times: Between AFC and NFC, Parity is Only a Six-Letter Word

My latest Keeping Score column from the New York Times, about the AFC dominance over the NFC. You'll be surprised to see that the AFC has actually been the better conference pretty much all along (well, since 1972). Even when the NFC won all those Super Bowls, it didn't necessarily dominate interconference play. (Free registration required.)

Similarity scores for Tony Romo

Just because the Cowboys don't have a coach doesn't mean we can't analyze their quarterback. (Click link to read more.)

Broncos Consider All Options

OK, folks, where is Jake Plummer headed in 2007? I suppose the Broncos could keep him, but he won't be a happy camper. I'm a big fan of the Cleveland idea. It just isn't happening for Charlie Frye, and that team could be ready to contend. Plummer is not a star, but he's not as bad as he looked last year.

2006 Quick Reads: Week 20

Peyton Manning did not suddenly become a good playoff quarterback yesterday. He's always been a good playoff quarterback. From the Peyton Manning comment in PFP 2005: "The common media storyline was 'Patriots own Peyton,' ignoring the fact that Manning had a very good game -- worth 10.5 DPAR, in fact, once you take into account the quality of the Pats defense. It's not Peyton Manning's fault that Edgerrin James averaged 2.8 yards per carry and that the Colts had 16 first downs passing and zero rushing. It's not Peyton Manning's fault that his receivers coughed up the ball twice."
