No post today; I’m working on a few much larger things that should be pretty cool/interesting, but they obviously take a lot of time.
One is a series (with a special guest author) I’m going to run on 4th down decision-making, during which we’ll try to come up with a “default 4th down decision chart” that functions like the “Two-Point Conversion Chart” coaches use now. Early preview: coaches are NOT making the right decisions at a high rate, and the identity of the “best” decision makers will shock you. Look for that starting Monday.
I’m also working on some more draft research, including a new model focused on where prospects WILL go, rather than where they SHOULD go (which is the TPR system). That’ll take a little while though.
For now, I’d like to encourage everyone who hasn’t done so already to pre-order their copy of the 2013 Eagles Almanac at this link. Great cast of writers; great list of topics. Easily the best Eagles preview you will read. Just $10 for a digital copy, or $25 for a hard copy. I’ll have contributions on the QB situation and hopefully an in-depth analytical look at projecting college production to the NFL. Click through to see the other authors and a taste of what this year’s edition will feature.
Thanks for your support.
