Analysing the NFL

What are some websites/sources that give weekly analysis of the upcoming weekend's NFL games?

Sites that aren't the typical weekend talking heads, but more on the geek side?

Probably the best website for something like that is Football Outsiders. They do a lot of very interestingstats work analysising games and teams.

Though his column is more review than preview, Gregg Easterbrook's Tuesday Morning Quarterback column is always interesteing and written from a somewhat different perspective.

The Football Project -- which used to work but appears to have gone offline for the moment -- offers statistical analyses and data from pretty much every game ever played.

Pro Football Talk is a little more "talking head," but nonetheless offers a good take on the game and has tons of inside information that you might not see on other sites. He also compiles links from hundreds of newspapers, so it's a quick and easy way to catch up on lots of football news at once.

One more site that I forgot to mention -- but was just looking at when I remembered this post -- is It has a number of articles with some detailed mathematical analysis and models of various strategies and such.
