Panthers hire "Director of Analytics"

Recommended Posts

Analytics are used as a supplemental tool in decision-making. No business relies 100% on analytics...there’s still very much an element of human intuition in each business model, or else Managerial roles would become obsolete and decision-making would become a purely automated process.

So introducing (or improving) another component to help make better decisions for the team is 100% a win.

i worded it weird but you get what i mean. i just feel like any stats/analytics can be misleading. i look at it like completion percentage. a QB can throw a shitty pass but if the defender slips or theres broken coverage it can still lead to a completion. just like a QB can throw one right on the money and it can bounce off the chest of Devin Funchess or the DB could make an insane play on the ball. just feel like theres way more variables involved in football than any other sport

That’s literally things that analytics look at.

i havent done any. thats why i'm genuinely asking how much goes into it and what they truly evaluate. im not dogging the approach im asking for someone to explain to me how you can use it in ways MLB and NBA teams use it. 

Gottcha. It came across that you were saying it wouldn't help.  The article explains what types of things the analyst does and there are several others regarding the roll of analytics in the NFL. It's not super concrete or easy to pick up on exactly how they help but I take their word that the things listed are the things they help with.  Economics is some crazy broad stuff well beyond what it seems to mean on the surface. If he went to MIT for economics he's really damn smart and that level of analytical ability can be applied to everything.

I am extremely excited by this hire. an MIT grad assisting the head coach with decision making...a head coach known for making poor in-game decisions, this is excellent.
