4.0 out of 5 stars STICK TO THE FACTS, July 31, 2010
This review is from: Football Outsiders Almanac 2010: The Essential Guide to the 2010 NFL and College Football Seasons (Paperback)
I love this book and order it as soon as it's available. Great analysis of pro football and college teams in areas not even dreamed of by most fans.

One huge drawback for me in this edition was having the AFC North analyzed by a writer with an "inexplicable passion for the Cincinnati Bengals" as per the analyst's Bio provided by the Editor.

His snide references to the other three teams in the division and his petty comments of their players certainly detracts from the total enjoyment of the publication - at least for me. This type
of tackiness is consistent with the so-called 'shock' reporting rampant today, but totally unnecessary if you want the facts.

I would also like to see a table depicting team win projections for the coming season coupled with their opponent's strength
of schedule. For example, Baltimore 11.6 wins projected with the 11th toughest strength of schedule and Indianapolis 11.3 wins projected with the 26th toughest strength of schedule. This information is available for all teams - it just needs to be summarized into a table or graph.
