Goal of article:
The goal of this article is to reflect on the game with an emphasis on predicting future success/failure. Therefore, I’ll focus on issues that tend to predict future behavior (based on Football Outsiders research) e.g. fumbles that are caused by the RB getting stripped) and less on other factors (fumbled snaps, and all fumble recoveries). I’ll try and do my best to alleviate some bias, but will call out specifically in advance that McGinnest was washed up last year and shouldn’t be on the field (the Peek injury is significantly larger than the Holly injury). Further, since I don’t have a DVR I’m not able to watch plays in slow motion to see what really happened.
