Part reference and part history, this first volume of the Pro Football Almanac collects the betting lines for more than 13,000 pro football games dating back to 1940, including complete NFL seasons since 1954. An opening essay on the history of the pointspread sets the stage for the data that follows. In a lively, flowing narrative, Wald traces the evolution of the pointspread from its beginning as a crude adjunct to betting odds to the standard betting option for football that it is today. Debunking myths and confirming others, Wald shines a spotlight on a subject that continues to be one of the most misunderstood and misrepresented in sports. Of course, the heart of Volume I is the data. Covering three professional leagues (NFL-AFL-AAFC) and over 40 teams, historians and data geeks alike could spend five years on a sandy spit with this tome before dog-earing the pages. Featuring lists of pro football's greatest coaches against the spread and top 5 games as favorite and underdog by team, the Pro Football Almanac, Vol I is the most thoroughly researched work ever published on the subject.

A Sports-Obsessed Memoir of Fatherhood

For most of his life, Josh Wilker has been on the sidelines. Spending his days in a cubicle in the far reaches of Chicago, and his nights in front of Red Sox games, he has been content to let others take center stage. From childhood onward, he sought comfort from anxiety and depression in the archival pages of sports almanacs and stat sheets: a place where forgotten players lingered, and time seemed to stop--a welcome relief from worldly problems. He found joy in the trivia of long-lost athletes, like the former NFL player Walter "Sneeze" Achiu. But when his first child was born in 2011, Wilker found his anxieties put to the test: how do you remain on the sidelines when a tender, fragile baby needs everything from you? How do you go from third-string forward on the winless 1988 Johnson State College Badgers to a strong, responsible father? Bit by bit, Wilker learns to overcome his demons, protect his son, and eventually take a few wobbly steps with him. In homage to his favorite pastimes, Wilker has written Benchwarmer as just that: an A-to-Z reference on failing at sports. In entries from Asterisk to Barry Bonds to "the Yips" to Zero, Wilker mingles his own story among those of famous collapses, errors, and also-rans. A candid, bighearted, funny presence, Wilker writes about sports the way Michael Chabon writes about comics, or Rob Sheffield writes about music: as if the universe was contained in every blocked shot or dropped fly ball. In Wilker's hands, it is.

The most authoritative and innovative annual guide to both the NFL and college football is back for an all-new season with more cutting-edge statistical analysis, obsessive film study, and trademark humor. Includes comprehensive coverage of all 32 NFL teams, analysis of offseason personnel changes, over 500 KUBIAK fantasy football projections, and breakdowns of the top 50 college football teams for 2017. With numerous statistical measures that go far beyond standard NFL stats, Football Outsiders Almanac 2016 gives NFL fans the kind of sabermetric-like statistical analysis that revolutionized the fan's understanding of baseball. It's also written with a knowing dry wit that gets under the skin of America's most popular spectator sport. Groundbreaking team and player DVOA ratings that correct for situation and opponent to reveal which offenses and defenses are truly superior, and which players really help win games. Exclusive data from our partners at Sports Info Solutions, unavailable in standard NFL stats, tells you which quarterbacks benefit the most from yards after catch or play best under pressure; which teams most often blitz or run specific offensive formations; and which defensive backs stop the other team's passing game, measured by pass coverage on every single play rather than just tackles. NEW FOR 2017: Data on how receivers performed based on where they lined up before the snap: wide, tight, in the slot, or in the backfield. Detailed information on each team's performance in 2016 by offensive and defensive personnel package. Detailed individual stats for offensive linemen and defensive players. Extensive coverage of all 32 teams with week-by-week stats from the 2016 season, five-year performance trends, and analysis of off-season personnel changes. Exclusive 2017 predictions that give the odds on each team as a Super Bowl contender ... or a contender for the top pick in the 2018 draft. 2017 fantasy football projections for more than 500 skill position players based on the KUBIAK forecasting system. Breakdowns on the top 50 college football teams and full win-loss projections for all 130 Division I-A (FBS) teams. "A book that any self-respecting NFL fan needs to purchase." -- Bill Simmons, The Ringer.com "Football Outsiders has now built a system that has some serious traction behind it. I personally find it fascinating." -- John Schneider, General Manager, Seattle Seahawks "Exhausting, enlightening, surprising in many cases, and an absolute must-read if you like the NFL. -- Peter King, TheMMQB.com "It's important for you, the working football fan, to know more about football than other football fans. The Football Outsiders Almanac will give you all the background knowledge you need to make your football-watching companions feel uninformed and inadequate." -- Drew Magary, Deadspin.com "Football is a nearly impossible game for even its most devout practitioners to understand. Football Outsiders is the best way I know to make it make sense." -- Will Leitch, New York Magazine/SportsonEarth.com
