Customer Review

on December 2, 2003
I love books of this genre. The baseball prospectus books are a national treasure. I enjoyed Football by the Numbers and The Hidden Game of Football when they came out in the 80's. This book is so far behind where it should have been. Sure it's decent analysis but no better than you can get in any fantasy football magazine. I really could have done better with about a month of typing. There was NOTHING groundbreaking about it. Where the baseball guys make are innovating, this is more mindless pablum. The basketball one had some improvements over the Basketball abstracts and Hoopstats of the late 80's-early 90's, but this football left me flat. For example, to not even adjust the expected yards per carry by the 3 d's : Down, distance, and defense. How can you still publish 'analysis' comparing to league averages? How 1984 pre-PC/excel spreadsheets can you get? It's not terribly written, there's some entertainment to it, but no more analysis than you can get by dropping 4.95 on a Street and Smiths.
