Most of the graphs and such I've seen here show Reich in more of a bad light than Jacoby I think.
Many of the dump off passes seem designed. Different when Jacoby looks downfield first. Thos are him giving up on downfield and taking the "safe" easy short throw. But many times that does work for a team the can run the ball.
Pretty much my whole understanding of how the cap actually works came from @Superman's posts. Why I joined the forum in the first place really. It's hard when there the people in real life who know the NFL and few and far between.
That's not so much statistical analysis,and as you say, it's easy to spot. They succeeded more from how they manipulated who was doing the counting vs the betting. It really doesn't give you a huge advantage (circa 1%), so you have to step you bet when the deck is hot to profit and you stick out like a sore thumb. Shuffling machines are more prevalent now as well which removes the "memory" from the game rendering counting useless.
Statistical analysis isn't an art, it's a science. Knowing what to do with the analysis is more the difference. That's more down to knowing your subject area and how to apply it. But again there are methodologies to these things, system analysis etc etc.
Stats get a bad rep because people cherry pick out of context.
Sorry, I get excited by graphs. I'll go have a lie down.
I have no idea what is being argued here. At first I thought it was - Brissett? Good or bad?
No doubt the pass offense has taken a hit. Luck left, did we expect it to stay the same?
The WR group and WR injuries has had an effect as well. Luck could operate with a less than stellar group. Brissett is not at that point and may never be. Brissett is in the top 14 in most meaningful passing categories. It seems he has been doing what Reich is asking of him. The next 6 games will show us I eager we should be to draft a QB.
