Many of you know that http://www.pro-football-reference.com is the best place on the internet to get stats on players both past and present. I've recently discovered the owner of this site has started a blog.

http://www.pro-football-reference.com/blog/wordpress/

He does a some real interesting stuff. How do different WR perform with back up QBs? What determines milage on a RB, carries or age? He also has done some nice stuff with a simulator similar to my software. Overall its simialr to the stuff that Football Outsiders puts out.

If you like math and football, or are a fantasy football freak, it's worth checking out.

wow, priest is only 5 rushing TD's away from 8th all-time.

I hope he comes back, he could get that in his sleep

Maybee we can get Brett Favre to lay down and give Priest the record!

*ok... that was kind of weak but at least I tried*

He would do it, if they were on the field at the same time... and we played him.

He'd do it...

If you search for Derrick Thomas, the quote at the top of the screen says, "derrick, you will always be the best defensive end in the nfl..."

Yeah, I mean, everyone knows he was the falcon... :)

Sorry. That was uncalled for.
