32% is the chance not 20%.

Still, I don't know what the hell the analytics guys are seeing to say that was the odds to play in that spot.

I think I could find many holes in that analysis.

No. You pin them with a punt in that spot. That's what analytics should be saying if it was adequately dealing with real life factors.

They can say what they want and support it with whatever numbers they can create, it was still dumb.

I've torn apart too many of Kevin Rudy's bullshit 'studies' to count. Click on his name, and his profile pic should tell you all you need to know about his knowledge of different dynamics in sports. He's another one who twists data to support passing the ball 80% of the time.

I couldn't open up the tab where he specifies his data, but it's heavily implied that most of it is from college football. There's no fucking way in hell an NFL probability of going for it on 4th and 8 is 32%. And nobody who understands anything about the game would say anything other than it was a completely stupid decision by Pederson. I hope the press pushes him hard on that.

Curiosity is killing me, though.

Mikeynumbers would like the chance to rip it to shreds.

I can fix that for you without any effort - just insert a decimal point between the 3 and the 2 to get the real world odds.

As I said at the time, I'd have supported going for it if we only needed 2 or 3 yards, but not eight. That would have still been a bad decision even if we had converted.

There's more than enough info given to automatically dismiss his study. Look at some of his other ones. I really hope this is just a hobby for him, and poor saps don't pay him for 'predictions.'

Bump.

Click on his name and look at his pic. That's the guy who inspired 4th and 8. Feel good about that? laugh.gif

Maybe he crunched some numbers, and the data showed that your grass won't grow too much before it starts snowing. laugh.gif
