Default Re: New Angle on Analyzing the Steelers

GREAT article.

Only nit to pick is this:

Quote:
To reiterate, Pittsburgh lost the division because of poor QB play and poor passing defense in the three division games they lost.
While your analytics 'prove' your statement, it's more apt that Pittsburgh lost the division because of turnovers and Special Teams play in the three division games they lost (Punt Return TD vs. BAL, 7 TO's vs. CLE and pick-six vs. CIN).

It would be interesting to see the stats based on your model for all 32 teams.

GREAT stuff.
