Great news! Football Outsiders is offering a free download of the New York Giants chaper from their Football Outsiders Almanac 2009 (formerly Pro Football Prospectus). Here's the link. They had a problem with their publishers, so this year they're having to produce & promote the book themselves. The Giants essay explains why the team faltered at the end of last season (hint: it wasn't the absence of Plaxico Burress, as was the story in conventional sports media).
But maybe a better reason to read this sneak peek is because they list Michael Boley's game charting numbers. I knew one of the reasons he lost his starting spot was that he wasn't strong against the run, and wow - the numbers are worse than I could have imagined.
