Checkdown: Pro Football Reference in USA Today Pro Football 2010 Magazine

Posted by Jason Lisk on July 16, 2010

If you are interested, Chase and myself have contributed articles that now appear in the USA Today Pro Football 2010 Magazine. The magazine is available in a wide variety of locations, and also can be ordered online (though there is currently no online version that I can find).

Chase wrote an article that appears on page 24 of the magazine entitled "Booms or Busts?", which looks at 2010 being a crucial year for the up and down careers of the QB Class of 2006: Vince Young, Jay Cutler and Matt Leinart. I wrote a piece called "In The Middle Of Greatness--But For How Long?" (p. 52) that is focused on Patrick Willis, Jon Beason and DeMeco Ryans. It compares those players to other groups of young middle/inside linebackers in history. Chase also put together a quick list entitled "Chasing History" that looks at potential milestones and records in 2010, which appears on the final page of the magazine after the team previews.

I want to say thank you to the folks who put together the Pro Football 2010 Preview for considering us for inclusion in the magazine. If you are out and about at a bookstore or magazine stand and see it, let us know what you think.
