Jacoby Brissett Impressions: (Perma Merge)

Recommended Posts

The odds say that, yes. But only because the casino uses games that naturally favor the house, not because of statistical analysis itself. 

 

I am not saying it isn't a powerful tool. For example watch the movie Rounders. It is a perfect example of someone being better at statistical analysis than the casino and is based on a true story.  But the casino doesn't allow those people to play and sit at the table long enough to clean them out.

 

Rounders really isn't about that... it's about reading your opponent at a poker table (which isn't a house game in that film). Do you mean whatever the film was called about card counting teams for blackjack?

 

You can't beat the odds on house games (barring one, and they've removed that). From what you've posted, it would be say possible to "beat" roulette by analysing previous results. You can't.

 

As a side note my background was going from working in casinos to somehow ending up formulating health care strategy for over half a million people. I do a lot of looking at previous trends to identify future models of care. I know gambling and I know numbers..

But the point @GoatBeard is making (or so I understand it to be), is there are no sure things. So you can have a very strong evidence base that something has happened 99.99% of the time, but there is still always a chance of a surprise. 

 

Then it's more into things like EV, Value Propositions etc etc. 

 I like the eye test

 

       There are so many factors that determine if a person will be successful at their chosen career

Yes, I meant 21. My fault.

 

You can still beat the house at blackjack by counting cards, which is actually much easier than people think if you're good with math in your head. But they won't tolerate it and as soon as you start winning too much you'll come under suspicion. 

 

I dont doubt you know numbers, but would you agree some in your field are better than others at it? Because it's a subjective art?

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.

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.

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.

Since he is a Jr. he has the option    
    He might have to prove that he is back to 100%

            If it appears that he might drop a lot it might be in his best interest to stay in college

 

          No One knows but this type of injury  has been a career ender for others

I've taken issue with some of Reich's play calling this year. Even if he's being conservative, I'd like to see more play action from under center, especially on second down, and I'd like to see more screens.

Please explain to me how the unit last year with most of the same guys were 6th, and this year they are 25th.

 

I don't even need to research this. I've listened to those here and I think I understand-

 

It's because the current QB locks on to his (double covered) #1 receiver too long, doesn't go through progressions, can't find the open guy, throws it way too hard for any of the receivers to catch, isn't accurate when he throws, and when they finally get one they can catch, it is for low yardage and there's no YAC.  Thus, the Y/A and ANY/A stink.

 

Therefore, the game plan and play calls should be to hand off the ball, early and often and hope they can make plays, play great D, all while scouring the draft mocks for replacement college QB's.

 

 

 

How did I do? Do I win?

I've been less than enamored as well.  But I don't know why he and Sirianni create the play call sheet they do, and why the call the plays on it like they have been.

 

Also, how often does JB change the play?

To the bolded, I'm gonna go with never. And by "never," I mean less than 5% of the time. And that's just my observation, not based on anything that I'm presenting as absolute fact. 

 

As for why they're calling the plays they are, I think there are multiple reasons. First, I believe they're coaching to their personnel, as others have said, and the biggest change this season is the QB. And over the last few weeks, lots of injuries at critical positions. So that's fine. 

 

But I don't understand the lack of screen plays. To me, there's one explanation, and it's that we're not good at screens, but that bothers me. We should be able to run a moderate amount of screens with a moderate degree of success, and every once in a while get a big one to go. We did on third and long Sunday, so big props, but let's see more of those in less throwaway situations.

That's a very general statement that doesn't really bring anything to the conversation.

 

There's literally no personnel grouping on offense that would prevent a play action pass. And unless we have zero backs on the field, there's no grouping that would prevent play action from under center (and with all the injuries at WR, we're not using zero back formations). 

 

Play action on second down isn't going to tip off the DC. More importantly, I don't care if it does. Play action isn't for sucking in every defender and going over the top, it's for opening some pass windows and slowing down the pass rush. It's not going to happen, but I'd love to see 50% of our pass attempts come off of play action. And when we're running the ball down the defense's throat like we did Sunday, maybe every pass attempt would be play action, with the exception of third and long.

The lack of screens might be based on the personnel groups

     Example

        So far Hines has struggled to produce great rushes so when he is in the backfield Ds can key on screen

Personnel grouping and even stances can tip off certain plays

 

     If you have a back in that struggles running but is a great receiver, it can tip of the D

Run a bubble screen. Run a fake screen to Hines (gasp!) Run a screen when Hines isn't on the field. Throw one to Mack (double gasp!)

 

These plays are in the playbook. Reich worked with Doug Pederson for two years, before that he worked with Mike McCoy and Ken Whisenhunt (who at one point, seemingly forever ago, were pretty good OCs), before that he worked with Tom Moore and Peyton Manning... and he's a pretty good play caller when he wants to be. We have this stuff at our disposal.

The problem on Sunday was that PA relies on repetition and when Mack went out the opportunity went out the window

Why does it matter

 

     Just because FR doesn’t like or feel comfortable with a set of plays doesn’t make him a bad HC

Teams defy stats all the time. 

 

What is the anti Brissett crowds argument if it's not that he limits our ability to win? Because I apparently dont get it.

That requires you to listen with an open mind.  Something you've not demonstrated.  At all. 

 

Someone comes at you with stats, "Stats don't matter!  I coached high school and it's like taking a school bus of kids down the field safely!"  Okay, what about film analysis?  He's not throwing guys open?  "Look at his TD-INT ratio!"   Yeah but Reich seems to be treating him differently than Luck, because he's not seeing the field well enough.  I think Reich runs the ball more and limits the playbook for JB so it masks his weaknesses, weaknesses that Luck didn't have.  "2018 doesn't matter!  Stats don't matter again!  We're winning and could be 9-1!  Why doens't anyone understand meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!"

I never called Reich a bad coach, and I never complained that he was costing us games. Don't do this strawman stuff, please.

 

And how do you know he doesn't feel comfortable with screen passes? He called one on third and 19 and it converted. He calls play action, just at about the same clip as every other typical NFL play caller.

 

I've been saying since 2013 that I think it's time for someone to test the upper limits of the play action threshold. I'd love for that to be this year's Colts, especially since we have a capable rushing attack. But I'll even settle for 10% more play action, with some of those PA attempts coming from under center.

 

I promise that if it's not successful (however we're qualifying "success"), I won't call for Reich to be fired because he called too much play action. Scouts honor.

The prevailing counter argument seems to be that if you throw a screen to Hines, the defense will immediately stop him because they know he's out there to catch screens (even though we never throw any to him, so go figure). 

 

And at the same time, there's a vocal objection every time Hines gets an inside carry, because he's supposed to be used in space.

 

So don't establish any trends, and don't call any trend busters. Just ... I don't know ... punt???

I really can't think of any incredible good motive to not use more PA. It would at least help Brissett on the passing game.

 

I've been asking myself every game this same question: Why? Why wouldn't we abuse of the PA when (mainly) our running games is destroying the competition.

 

Well, I guess that's one more question to a season full of them.

You run the classic Whalen S/T play, that’s what you do. 
 

Hines is a tough one for me, I like a lot of what he can offer, but as you lay out in the above, how to best use him. 
 

Thoughts on some 2RB formations?

    • I feel the same.     Bill explains- “I heard about this, and evidently this is our production people on the TV show that were there,” Belichick said, via Pats Pulpit. “I have absolutely nothing to do — we have absolutely nothing to do with anything that they produce, direct, shoot or anything. I’ve never even seen any of their tapes or anything else. So this is something that we 100 percent have zero involvement with. This is something that you would have to talk to the production people about and what they were doing and whatever it was.”   A team really doesn't need a special production video team to record the upcoming opponents sidelines/coaches.  Think about it, someone placed in the stands with an advanced smartphone with tons of memory can take HQ video from the stands wearing normal non team oriented clothing.  They can later synch it up to scouts notes (who was calling plays, how their arm, hands were vs. what was run, down/distance, etc) to see if some gestures tip certain plays... etc. They also have access after a game to All 22 coaches film, to synch the hand written notes up to.     Advance scouts scout every team. They also get the 'scout team' prepped to emulate the upcoming opponents formations/p\lays.     That's a fine.  Big one. They should just hire a college kid with an huge smartphone to film for them...  ooops!  ;)   Every team has advance scouts doing extensive note taking on upcoming opponents, and All 22 video to correlate. OTOH, rules were broken...
    • I actually haven't been to any of those ones except Fenway which I found great with atmosphere and just how it felt walking around the ballpark and way they had it set up
    • Long story short, the Colts didn't tank and were a busted run against the Jags from not getting Luck. It doesn't really matter anymore and it arguably never really did, but damn it, I find the "Colts tanked for Luck" narrative annoying. I watched those games that year for some reason. Kerry Collins was washed up. Curtis Painter got an honest shot that might have gone a game or two longer than it should have, but it is what it is and Dan Orlovsky was like a glass of water after Painter. If you're tanking, you play Painter. Anyway, whatever. I should let this one go..
