    I got mine yesterday. I didn't like this as much as the 2005 book personally. Seemed harder to read, less interesting essays and I thought I saw a lot more glaring errors along with some questionable ones.

    For Newman, he had great stats, but they had him being thrown at 76 times. AdamJT13 had him down for 70 times being thrown at and I had him for 69 times. And while that may be just a small difference, they had Newman for giving up 5.3 yards per pass attempt. Both Adam and I had him at 4.5 yards per pass attempt.

    I'll never exclude myself from probably screwing up, but I find it a bit difficult to believe that both Adam and I could have very similar stats and the charter for Dallas games had Newman with 6-7 more pass attempts and roughly 80-90 more yards allowed.

    Other than that, it's still a decent buy. However, they need to do a better job with their statistical index section at the end of the book. They decided to go in order by passing attempts allowed instead of stop %, so it was a pain to find out who ranked first. Also, they're better off increasing the minimum amount of passing attempts allowed. A guy like Ed Reed finished first in pass stop %, but he hardly played last season.

    Anybody else have thoughts?
