What are some good websites for intelligent discussion and analysis of the NFL

ESPN excels at covering the celebrity gossip aspects of sports. Ron Jaworski’s NFL Matchup is terrific, but it’s only a half hour, and they hide it at like 8am on Sunday. So who’s out there writing that type of nuts and bolts stuff, about, say, how the Patriots managed to run for so many yards against the Jaguars? Stuff along the lines of Football Outsiders? Anything out there that does what Fire Joe Morgan does, but for football?

Well, I would say that you would be best served by looking at various sports pages for newspapers throughout the country. There are many other terrific sports pages out there, and they are a fun thing to look through.

Not an answer, but it sounds like a great blog idea to aggregate and/or link to the best of NFL commentary along the lines of what you’re describing.

I just recently discovered Hashmarks, an ESPN blog by Matt Moseley, and I’ve been enjoying it. His daily link roundups are especially useful. Also at ESPN, Len Pasquarelli is consistently good for analysis after big games. Restricted to Pats and their opponents, though.

Pro Football Talk is a fugly site that often has a decent compendium of NFL news and gossip.

(oh, sorry, if you’re trying that link, you should probably go to the bottom and ask google to include the omitted similar results there’ll be way more article titles to browse that way.)
