Football Outsiders

It’s not perfect, but Football Outsiders has some nifty writing. Here’s a snipped from a game blog for this week’s game between the Eagles and the Seahawks:

[David Hawthorne] moves out to cover McCoy, and they both realize McCoy is covered and stop running, nearly coming to a standstill. Hawthorne, convinced his job on this play is completed and the pass is absolutely not headed his way, gives a bored look into the backfield to see if anything more exciting is going in that part of the world. And there, lo and behold, is the ball, in midair, headed his way. I half-expected him to duck out of the way, the pass caught him so off-guard.
