PFF ranks Frank Reich no. 2 in the league in decision-making

Recommended Posts

Seems like PFF are using Machine learning algorithm in order to determine how good the situational decisions of NFL coaches have been this season and their algorithm spits out Frank Reich as the second best decision-maker in the league behind John Harbaugh and ahead of Doug Pederson:

 

 

All 3 of them have credited advanced analytics people in the booth for helping them with decisions in key situations.

Am I the only one that sees the circular logic in that?

You are speaking of the Dept. of Redundancy Dept? 

 

In all seriousness, stats are great, wonderful for conversations, but tendencies, streaks, and records are being constantly broken. The most common consistent stat is inconsistency.

My gut tells me something else but then I have too much gas in it to think straight, so I will go with analytics to bypass it. :)

Well it depends on what type of analytics they use. It's possible(probable) different teams use different models but come to similar results, which would explain the match with what PFF's algorithm spits out. Anyways, the point of my last sentence was to explain why that might be, not sure how that's circular logic. It's more of a demonstration of those teams' adherence to what the numbers people tell them.

I rely on “pi” for all my decisions. Chess works the best.

Are you a southerner or from the south?  Not many people north of the Mason-Dixie line know what chess pie is.

I have NO idea how to judge this.  I have enough trouble trying to keep up with the game,  LOL

Mississippi. Any further South and I’d be swimming.

It's just a demonstration that it seems like Reich is taking the advice from his analytics guys in the booth. So I guess your judgement should depend on how much you trust analytics.

Odds are being a Colts fan will give you a headache. Personal experience, no analytics :D.

 

Not to bring up the 'ex' so to speak, but Frank seems so much more in tune to what's going on compared to the last guy.

I think this just shows Frank Reich and Co have studied the probabilities in different situations and go with the choice that historical probability says gives them the best chance to win.

 

You know I remember a day when most coaches used to punt on 4th and 1 from midfield.   Now that rarely happens unless it's situational.  (Say you are up by 2 with 30 seconds left to go.)  What happened?  Well some people took a look at it, realized the rather high probability of converting a 4th and 1 and realized the chance of getting it and continuing the drive to get some more points was much better for your team than the extra 25 or 30 yards from kicking a punt which has a strong likelyhood of ending in a touchback.

There's no debate there...

    • I also don't have a clue. At this point all we have heard is standard GM speak. I don't read too much into what he has said.  In reality how the draft folds out is what will dictate what he does. He may go a total different direction than what fans think? 
    • I know that's what people say.  And I'm not on any Fromm train.  I'm just wondering why people say that.     Why is Love in the First tier and Eason in the second?  So far, neither Fromm nor Eason have had a friendly environment with which to showcase themselves.   We haven't even had a bowl game, a combine, pro day, etc.  Its too early to make any determinations one way or the other, IMO.    The only thing I know is that we have a pocket to protect a pocket passer, and 6'6" is better than anything shorter, and that field vision and accuracy are the two most important skills for a QB.   The fact is, if JB was able to do only two things, consistently see open receivers and get them the ball in the right spot, we would be talking all day about DTs, WRs, TEs, and OTs, and not even seriously looking at QBs.
    • Sorry for not posting more of Gordon. It it has proven harder to find.  Another view of first TD He is also reported to ha e gotten better as the week has gone along.   
    • Hey guys I don't know if it has be brought to you attention yet, but if we need a dominant TE, we could find it at the FA. Austin Hooper, who made it to the Pro Bowl this year is FA at the end of the season. It could be a really good fit for us.  What do you guyw think about it !?
