Levi Jones Headed for Surgery

Just in case you didn't learn it from Michael Lewis's new book, just in case you didn't learn it from watching the 2006 Seattle Seahawks, just in case you didn't learn it from tonight's Arizona choke job, let me remind you that the offensive line is important. So the Bengals are in some serious trouble, now that Levi Jones, one of the top left tackles in the game, needs arthroscopic knee surgery and is out for a few weeks. The Bengals have already had problems without center Rich Braham.

Shawn Krest, one of the game charters, is writing a weekly column on the Buffalo Bills based on his work. It's pretty interesting stuff. This one addresses missed tackles -- unfortunately, tracking those adds so much time to charting that it would be tough getting enough volunteers, but Krest is doing some pretty cool stuff adding his own ideas to our charting categories.

FOX Blog Wrap-Up, October 7-13

So, I've been trying to figure out what to do about the Football Outsiders FOX blog, and alerting people to the content. We don't want to link every piece back to FO, because we want people to get used to checking it on their own, but we also don't want our dedicated readers to miss the stuff we're writing over there. So I'm going to try this, a weekly look at what we covered on the FOX blog on Friday afternoons, which can be a catch-all thread for discussion of these topics free from the standard "FO stats are dumb" FOX commenters.
