Statistics really are everywhere

This just seems like the right way to run a football team. Has anybody worked on fancy ways of using statistics for choosing football strategies? I'd be interested in hearing about it.,0,7267488.story

I'd recommend reading the book "Moneyball" by Michael Lewis if you haven't heard of it. It's a great application of contrarian statistics to build a baseball team on a budget. Fantastic story. Some stats PhDs. Maybe I'll give it to you for Christmas.
