For anyone interested in the stat guru's take on the Giants' 2008 season and their analysis of what to expect for 2009 there's a free download available at http://footballoutsiders.com/ramblings/2009/foa-2009-preview-new-york-giants .
There's interesting analysis on the Giants' performance without Burress. The offense actually improved, especially the passing offense,although the running game was less effective. The biggest problem in the passing game was Steve Smith's lesser performance over the last several games. But, the reduction in sack rate over the last several games seems to have been the main culprit in the late season skid, as many of us have theorized. What's really interesting is that the numbers show that Spags' zone blitzes were not effective and that the team played its best defense when they rushed four and dropped 7 into coverage. The biggest concern was the lack of quality reserves on the offensive line.
Anyway, it's interesting stuff.
