With all of the fantasy football content I’ve been pumping out lately, I haven’t posted to The DC Times as much as  I would like, and not nearly as much as I used to post in the past. That will be changing. I’ve officially joined the gang over at NBC’s Blue Star blog, and I will be publishing Cowboys content five days a week.

Actually, I’ve already published two pieces there: an article on why Anthony Spencer will record a career-high in sacks in 2012, and today’s article on why expectations for DeMarco Murray might be a bit out of hand. Click the links to read those articles. In the second entry, I wrote:

Murray averaged 5.47 yards-per-carry (YPC)—the fourth-best total for a rookie running back since 2000 (behind only Maurice Jones-Drew, Adrian Peterson, and Clinton Portis). YPC is a stat that tends to “regress toward the mean,” i.e. it evens out over time. Simply put, it isn’t reasonable to expect Murray to continually rush for 5.47 YPC (or even anything close to it).

At NBC, you will see a lot of the features from The DC Times during the season. “Grading the ‘Boys” and “DOs and DON’Ts” will likely move over to NBC, and I also plan to break down an important play from each Cowboys game. There will be a lot more game film analysis like I used to do in the past.

In addition to work at NBC and of course my current “Running the Numbers” blog at the Cowboys’ team site, I will also be working with another major publication starting next week. Simply put, I will be publishing articles multiple times a day, so there will be a huge bump in content published here. I’ll post links to any articles at other spots, and there will be more unique content here as well.

Plus, I’ve been tinkering with some new blog layouts to make navigating the site easier. I’m hardly a web designer and I realize there are some issues with the current layout. You may have even experienced one of the new layouts, depending when you’ve visited, because I’m so incompetent with this stuff that I’ve been “previewing” the new layouts by actually making them live. Oh well.

So DC Times readers, if you have ideas for the new layout, things you want to see, or even topic ideas you want to see me cover, send them in. As always, thanks for the support.

    Holy Crap!

    Nice site – still learning the where of everything but good to hear (read) you’ll be posting a lil more. I often use your material in other blogs – mostly BtB – and without your stats, I don’t look as smart (LOL).

  2. Haha well they will be coming in full force all season. Let me know if you want to see anything. Still a lot of work to do here, but the primarily goal is just to make it easier to navigate.
