Some very interesting numbers in the article.  Basically he shows how outcomes of close games (7 point or less) can predict how many wins or losses a team can expect the next season.

It can definitely happen. The pieces are there(just barely on the o-line). However we need at least 1 guy to come up big at WR, run blocking needs a big jump. The secondary I'm actually not worried about.

Grantland has always done a good job at telling it how it is as where ESPN is just a crowd pleaser that panders to the big market audiences.

 

ESPN wouldn't dare say anything about Luck and the Colts declining because they know they will start to lose viewers.

 

This is one reason that some of the best sports news outlets are some of the little businesses (because they tell it how it is).

 

It's a shame, but that's just the way it is.

It's all on Shula. If he can produce we are looking at a winning season.

I guess people have just totally forgotten about Rivera's game management the past 2 seasons. We need big improvements from him if we are going to win those close games that have continually eluded us in the past.

Zod has an inverted boner for Shula.

 

It's the same thing as people saying it's all on Cam.

Agreed. I think he's the biggest factor of the whole season.
