QUOTE
It would've been thrown to the right hash mark, at the CB, with absolutely nobody in front of him.

Ummm...except there are 2 LBs on the play, not DBs


QUOTE
He had slowed down and the CB was directly under him when Wentz saw him. Then he checked down to Blount. Try imagining this in 3D.

Again...LBs and there is plenty of room for even a bad QB to make that throw.

QUOTE
After Wentz checked down. You are aware DB's are trained to follow the QB's eyes and where he's looking, correct? Maybe tell 'Baldy' that.

Again...LBs and now you fall back to them reading his eyes? Seriously? For that short a throw there is no time to even react to reading hus eyes if he makes either throw as both options are already open.


QUOTE
Based on your experience playing 'rookie mode' in Madden, sure.

No....I was never a Madden fan...I am just not an idiot. It is a firm pocket and clear throwing lane to either option where the QB can step into the throw...it does not take a genius to see it.


QUOTE
Brian Baldinger is a former o-lineman and a meathead. His job is to find things to talk about. Pederson coaches for a living, yet we won despite him. Ryan Leaf used to QB for a living. Chip Kelly was a GM for a living. Get it?

And you or I are what? more qualified than Baldy? He gets paid to to do it but you are the genius? I love the Pederson comment from clowns like you. First the chirping about Kelly gutting the roster...then how bad Howie drafted...and then Pederson sucks and lost in all the idiotic comment is the irony that this terrible coach takes a shitty roster with no WRs and is 9-10. He must do somethings right. I realize people like you will never admit they are wrong...no big deal. If you did that would be half of your posts.


QUOTE
My problem is we should be focused on an unbelievably stupid decision by Pederson, not by a hesitation from Wentz in a play that he never should've had to make.

Except that he followed what you call a stupid decision with the perfect play call and had 2 wide open options.
By the way, Baldinger was echoed by Ross Tucker who also makes a living analyzing the NFL. They were not alone but I am sure you are much brighter than both of them. I forget...how many years did you play in the league? And what top notch college did you play at?.....I am sure it prepared you much better than either of them.

QUOTE
Thanks for playing.

You are very welcome. Signing autographs at the mall later of are you busy writing your HOF acceptance speech?

It's just amazing when haters have to grasp at whatever straw they can find. Just because people get paid money to do things doesn't mean they're infallible - especially ex-NFL offensive linemen, who's main job is to be large. Are you telling me that you never fuck up making a Sausage McMuffin? Chip Kelly got paid millions in exchange for destroying our roster. Random meatheads with an IQ of 80 who used to block linemen don't impress me.

It was a stupid decision, end of story. And no, I could care less if 'Baldy' or Ross Tucker say otherwise. Within the play, Agholor was well covered, and when Wentz turned to Blount, the defenders reacted. As DRock mentioned, going deep to the right was the best option there. This is just video buddy, we can all see this.

I have to apologize...it seems you think that, like you, others here work for McDonalds...not that there is anything wrong with that.lol Guys like Baldy and Tucker get paid well to do what they do because they have a talent for it. Tucker is Princeton Grad so, unlike you, he is actually a pretty smart guy. You demonstrate your ignorance by failing to comprehend the actual point of this exercise. It was not whether the decision to go for it was wise or unwise....that is debatable and I understand the points by those who don't like it. The point was that the play call was a good one and there were 2 open options that the QB missed. Both Baldy and Tucker did not support the decision to go for it but they both saw the play and what the QB missed. More importantly they saw that both open options were directly in front of Wentz. Whether or not Pederson should have gone for it is irrelevant and a separate debate.

How dare you - Pederson does this for a living! Who are WE to question somebody who gets paid?!?! All hail Ross Tucker and Baldy!

Apparently Pederson has an analytics guy upstairs who he consults during the games, which presumably is why he went for it there. That's unbelievable, and should scare any Eagles fan. I'm already souring on the guy and we're 2-1.

You show an amazing ignorance about analytics. Of course he allows their input, it is what they are paid to do. Are you that obtuse that you think they can predict the situations they will be in BEFORE the game? Unreal.

Several folks have due to several factors which are conveniently ignored. The Giants offense had done nothing up to that point. The previous Eagles' drive was 18 plays and that one was on its 10th play so momentum was clearly in their favor. I do not disagree that the ideal call was to punt but I can understand his mindset.

Nope. Sorry, dip shit. But, there is NO WAY to skew this into Pedey making the right call.
While it’s hilarious watching you decry others’ “amazing ignorance of analytics” you typically miss reality and the realm of fact by failing to recognize analytics limitation in the game of football. Analytics as a concept lose value in any field based on the singular (and simple) aspect of sample size. This isn’t baseball, or the NBA. The fact that NFL teams play a mere 16 games a year significantly diminishes the usefullness of any analytic slant on decision making. That you’re too fucking stupid to realize this is both hilarious and predictable.

His numbers geek determined that the success rate was 32% - from what we've seen posted, that is based off an almost comically intellectually dishonest set of data models, with data that mostly comes from college football. It is based largely on a simple set of equations that have absolutely nothing to do with your own team, your opposing team, and the different dynamics and matchups related to such. Props to DRock for schooling you again.

I know you're probably too stupid to realize this, but when your job for almost 3 decades is football, then yes, you should know the basic situations you'll be in, inside and out. For quick decision making, that's why coaches also have charts based on different situations. But none of this matters - your gut instinct in that situation should be to punt, end of story. If you're calling up an 'analytics guy' and taking his advice based on the data we've seen, you shouldn't be a coach in the NFL, or any level above Pop Warner.

Analytics is for baseball. It's arguable that it can be attributed to basketball. Football?! NO.

Hahahaha...always a joy to read your input...always a brilliant display. It is particularly pleasing when you agree with a goofball but that should hardly be surprising. Please try to actually read what I typed if you are capable of rudimentary comprehension, Maybe, in your zeal to be the condescending dimwit that you can't help but be, you missed the part where I said that the ideal call would be to punt. Beyond that, your need to be the "smartest guy in the conversation" missed the point I was making in this thread was that, while the decision to go for it was debatable, the play call was a good one and there were 2 options that were wide open and missed by the QB. But, hey, it is almost lunch time out there...call the wife and tell her how you "showed them".

It has to suck living with such a huge inferiority complex.

If I am on the other side of you and Mr. Inferiority than I am in a good place.

To say that simply gut decisions rule coaching in any sport indicates you think that all the advancements in the evolution of coaching means nothing. It is one of the silliest things you have said and that is saying something. From QA coaches to review specialists there are a host of people who have input tot he coach as the games goes on. But hey, your right and virtually every team in the NFL and their coaches are wrong.

Now try to pay attention here because you amd Mr. Inferiority seem to miss the entire point....I do not disagree that the ideal call was to punt. Do you understand that? I have said it 3 different ways yet you both appear incapable of understanding basic english and need to rant on about some straw argument. I do understand his thinking and I understand that every team in the league has embraced analytics to varying degrees though most actually use it more than the Eagles who were late to the game with it. I realize that you are too daft to actually read about its use in the league because your brain is tired after the comics.

My point was that, after the decision was made (right or wrong) the correct play call was made and it should have been a first down. You grossly misread the video, calling LBs DBs and displayed your typical lack of football knowledge in doing so and that is to be expected but the bottom line is that the QB missed the chance to move the sticks. You don't like Pederson so he could cure cancer and you would bitch that he is an idiot because it hurts too much.

To say that simply gut decisions rule coaching in any sport indicates you think that all the advancements in the evolution of coaching means nothing. It is one of the silliest things you have said and that is saying something. From QA coaches to review specialists there are a host of people who have input tot he coach as the games goes on. But hey, your right and virtually every team in the NFL and their coaches are wrong.


As I've pointed out several times, the data used to come up with the number 32% in that situation is absurd. It can be trashed by any casual fan in a matter of seconds. Not only does it seem to come from mostly college football, it uses an absurd formula where you either have 'goal to go' or you don't. It also isn't tailored to an individual team and its players, against a specific team and its players, with different potential packages on the field. The Browns have a 32% chance of converting against the Chiefs defense? The Patriots have an equal chance against the Saints defense? Apparently so. If I could open the actual data table I'm sure I could spend an entire weekend destroying it. The fact that an NFL head coach is using such data to justify making blatantly stupid decisions is horrifying to me.

It should have cost us the lead, all the momentum, and a lot of morale going into the half, against a team we were dominating - and would've been the difference in the game. Thankfully the Giants wanted the win even less. Against good teams stupid decisions like this are going to bite us, and hard.

Why would giving the ball up at midfield against a team with 2.5 games of offensive futility automatically “cost us the lead”.

Nothing is automatic, even against a good team.

And there's also no guarantee that even after a punt that pins the opposition inside the 10 that they won't drive down and score anyway.

But isn't the point to improve ones chances?

Well, because it should've? Two almost certain TD's in a row, before we stop them on 4th?

Punting isn't fun, but it exists for a reason. I honestly can't believe people are defending Pederson here. This kind of shit is going to bite us hard if he keeps doing it.

Again...I don't disagree with you on the analytics, their validity and usage or whether it is wise for the Eagles to use them.
For them to have value you would need a sample set with the current players vs. the oppositions current players with injury, etc all factored in and that is not possible. We completely agree on that. But you have a coach who works for a GM and owner who think they are cutting edge na dwere late to the game with it and feel the need to use it heavily. There is no possible way for an NFL team to compile a reasonable data set that could allow them to accurately predict success or failure. My point was, and is that once the call was made he made a great play call and it should have resulted in a first down or a dropped pass. Nothing more, nothing less.
I also think that, considering managements insistence on the analytics, that it is understandable that he made the decision situationally. I would not have done it, you would not have done it but at least there was some rationale for the call no matter how crazy that rationale was. We have seen the guy in New England make similar moves.

We're obviously not going to solve this today, but I'll tell you this. In that situation if it was 4th and 1 or 2, I would've supported him going for it.

If there's any silver lining to Pederson's cavalier attitude, it's that we can expect him to always go for it on 4th when the fans feel it's necessary.

And you have seen all of the data and how the numbers have been computed? You know all of this how?

What team you're playing--in the big picture--is irrelevant. Just like in baseball, they bring a left handed batter in to face a right handed pitcher because the numbers say the batter--in the big picture--has a better probability of being successful than a left handed batter in that situation. This is regardless of the pitcher being faced. Now, they may also dig down and look at an individual batter's stats against an individual pitcher but that's much easier to do in a sport where it's an individual against another individual.

Again, I'm not making the argument they should (or shouldn't) have gone for it in this situation. There was only a 32% probability they'd make it. And, this whole argument about this particular play is one of the dumbest things you guys have debated here. It cost the Eagles exactly NOTHING in this game.

Have you read a single post on this thread? That's the whole fucking problem - we don't know. All I know is the data used to make that decision was ridiculous based on what is available. Which makes the rest of your post equally ridiculous.

The decision to go for it isn't the issue, the failure to execute a well-called play is the problem. If we continue to be unable to execute well-called plays that will bite us in the ass.
