        And as accurate as ever. It must piss you off that every year you’re thinking this is the year DWT1 is proven wrong, and every year Mediocre Matty proves me correct. Doesn’t that just piss you off?

        Just think five more years!!!! I’ll make a shit load of money, and you’ll be........

              Yeah, the national narrative on Cooter is VERY different than what most of us on the board have.

              I myself have been guilty of throwing Cooter under the bus but I also have to admit looking at the offense with a reasonable perspective it is kind of remarkable the numbers both Stafford and his receivers are putting up without a running game.

              Now, with that said it's that lack of a running game that has helped drive our negative opinion of Cooter, but how much of that is his fault is up for debate. I really think ultimately it is more of a personnel issue. Add a couple of pieces to the line (LG and C) and add a real running back to the offense and we could see an even more dynamic offense under him.

                IKR? Why does he keep repeating that?

                  Even on the Titans forum?
                  The Detroit Lions... where eleven men on the field is merely a suggestion.

                    That is a Tennessee board. It is just what you would expect.

                      Saber Metrics can play a part. Not in the way the Browns were playing it. Knowing the hit rate on draft picks and the time to mature in the league was never going to be in the favor, but using Saber metrics to make them seem invaluable (to the point of basically paying 16 million for a 2nd round pick), was never going to be good.

                      I have been saying this over and over in draft threads for years but a lot of people here and apparently the Browns GM put waaaaay to much value on draft picks. You don't want to not be able to get cheap labor out of developing players till fill out your roster. Getting good players that you get pro bowl like performance out of when they are at the cheapest is something you hope for. But even picking a top 5 pick in round 1, you don't always get that.

                      It would work better in FA. Where you plug in tons of actual production in the nfl information and possibly get good info on Value. But really that doesn't work because injury is a much bigger and less predictable issue in the NFL and you aren't choosing batting order and pitching schedule and deciding when to pull the starting pitcher. The NFL offensive and Defensive systems are way to different from coach to coach to accurately project productive value properly.

                          At its core sabermetrics is about maximising value by looking at more than the big numbers (like lets say a receivers Catches, yards, and TDs). Looking at something like Yards after catch, yards after contact, catch percentage and so on can help you find under utilized players and sign them at value.

                          I don't know if that is really sabermetrics or sabermetrics by the Browns because the one place it would be usable is FA. But you can certainly find ways to incorporating advanced statistics into scouting. But no way could a team get away with moneyball approach to football.

                            Trickalicious - I don't think it is fair that the division rivals get to play the Lions twice. The Lions NEVER get to play the Lions, let alone twice.

                              It is a waste of time. Football performance is too dependent on other players and factors.

                              What would the advanced stats say about Jordy Fuckface Nelson? He sucks without Aaron Rogers throwing the ball to him?

                              Advanced stats are stupid.

                                CGVT has a point. In baseball, the metrics you get are far less teammate influenced, and as such the advanced numbers can be extremely useful at getting to the core of what a player is capable of, though even then it can still get muddy, especially with defensive metrics.

                                While there are some advanced stats in football that are individual based, there's not nearly as many, and as such can't paint as complete of a picture.

                                That said, CGVT's complete dismissal of advanced metrics is just another "Old Man Yells at Cloud" moment.
