I picked up Phil Steele's NFL preview this weekend at the grocery store. Like others have said, I love his college previews and this is the 1st time I have picked up the NFL version.
I find his analysis interesting and he had a lot of positive things to say about the Panthers. He had us listed as a team on the rise based on his "Yards Per Game " theory. Also listed as one of the 5 teams listed on the rise based on his "Close Losses" theory.
While I disagree with his overall rankings, he provides tons of data to look over. He provides solid reasoning behind his projections, even if we may not agree with them. Keep in mind, this magazine is targeted to those who like to wager on the games.
