With 3-weeks of data teams are starting to form identities that show up in statistics. Obviously three games is a small sample size, but I thought it would be interesting to visualize the simple rating system (SRS) of each team's offense and defense. (source: https://www.pro-football-reference.com/years/2021/index.htm)
SRS is a points-based metric that gives a measure of team quality vs average (0); Higher is better. It DOES take into account the quality of opponent.
Based on SRS, the Panthers have the 2nd best defense through three weeks and a slightly above average offense (shown below). We are also in the top-right segment of the chart which is where good teams live. I'm excited about the early results. 🥳
The visualization also shows that our Panthers will have a good test of their defense when they square off against Dallas who is currently sporting the 2nd rated offense according to SRS. On the plus side, the Dallas defense rates below the Panthers three previous opponents.
We are trading players for assets and we already have depth to replace those players.
Arnold was at his ceiling. Tremble can do the same things he was doing and more.
Perryman was garbage and I am glad we were able to get anything for him. Our 2nd coverage LB barely sees the field anyway.
OL are not easy to find, half the league has questionable starters on their OL.
Maybe we can find someone that wants to trade for Elf next?
