Stadium Stat Crew FYI

14 July 2014 - 10:19 AM

Told by a friend in the NFL stat department today that there will be no new recording guidelines given to the stadium stat crews for 2014. We've seen stadium crews adjust their tendencies during the season in the past -- the Cincinnati crew early last year comes to mind -- but we should be able to count on many of the same inequities this year.


I'll review the most useful discrepancies in an upcoming RTD column. Larry Thomas will have weekly home and away tackle and assist counts in the Matchup Sheet again this season. And we'll be addressing any changes to the status quo in our inseason analysis and podcast discussions.

RTD Q&A -- Article published

05 June 2014 - 11:01 AM

Okay, this took a couple of days and a few thousand words longer than I expected with all the great questions submitted. Thanks to everyone for contributing.


RTD Q&A: What's Vexing You?




I'd like to make next week's Reading the Defense a Q&A.


As usual, I'd rather not do team-specific advice, but questions on strategy, the recent tier articles, depth charts/position battles, OTA news, etc. are all welcome.


What's vexing you?

IDP Roundtable: Offseason News

05 June 2014 - 08:20 AM

First Roundtable of the preseason is up ~ http://podcast.footb...2014-Vol67a.mp3 ~ covering lots of scheme changes, free agency ripple effects, OTA news and other big offseason news (Lee, Washington, etc).


We'll be back with shows in each of the next two weeks, reviewing some of our draft thoughts and rookie rankings and then John and I (and Sig) will dissect our early redraft tiers and rankings.


Thanks for listening.

Defensive Back Tiers [post-OTA update 7/5]

01 June 2014 - 09:44 AM

Defensive Back tiers (post OTA / minicamp) ~ posted 7/5


Defensive Back tiers (post-draft / initial version) ~ posted 6/1


No major modification to the tier process this year but I have made one major modification to the presentation process. The tier features will be presented in table format, which will allow me to include a one-liner for every player tiered.


If you see a possible omission or table error, my love and appreciation in advance for noting it in this thread, by email or via Twitter. And thanks in advance for any discussion and feedback you've got for the thread.
