Looking for an advantage? You ought to be watching Sterling Sharpe's Playbook on NFL Network. He and Brian Baldinger simply kick ass when it comes to analyzing tendencies and trends. Zero happy-talk bullshit, 100 percent gridiron-geekiness. Thursday and Friday at 8, Sunday at 11 a.m.
The next best thing (but only if you've got Tivo): Sunday Ticket's premium package with Short Cuts. Every game boiled down to 30 minutes. The problem is, it's poorly timed and hard to watch. To get the value out of this series, you really need a stop-rewind control and the ability to spread out your video work over the full week.
