For Better or Worse, These Six Teams are Not What You Think They Are

Below are five items which may surprise you and which will have impacts week 13 and beyond, all the way through the playoffs. Each are presented with a video discussion, walking through various visualizations from the visualized stats website Sharp Football Stats.

 

Ravens Offense – Worse than you Think

The Baltimore Ravens offense ranks 31st in Warren’s custom analytic Early Down Success Rate (EDSR), 30th in overall efficiency, 32nd on 3rd down and bottom 8 inside the red zone. But there is a twist to these horrible numbers that you likely didn’t know, which makes their performance even worse. Warren walks through the visuals from SharpFootballStats.com to show you the underlying story.

 

Falcons and Saints Offenses – Better than you Think

Matt Ryan and Drew Brees have both of these offenses flying high this year. With struggling defenses, these teams have needed to rely on their offense to win games. And while their offensive efficiency metrics are extremely impressive, considering their opposition, these teams are performing better than you think. Take a stroll through some of the visualizations from SharpFootballStats.com to see how.

 

What happened to the Tom Brady Revenge Tour?

With the weapons on this offense and the motivation of his 4 game deflategate suspension to start the season, many expected to see the Patriots look like the 2007 edition. While they are winning games and looking fairly efficient offensively, there is little emotion, tempo or aggression to the offense. Warren explains the real reason why that could be a big problem in the postseason through the use of the tools at SharpFootballStats.com.

 

Lions offense: a loud roar, but nothing to fear

Detroit has won 6 of their last 7 games and sit atop the NFC North. So why shouldn’t we take this team seriously? Warren uses some metrics from SharpFootballStats.com to showcase a key reason why their success the last few weeks may not carry over the rest of the year and into the playoffs. And he also shares several crazy stats to show you why this offense, which you think may be very efficient, actually has a big problem.

 

Bruce Arians – fix your playcalling!

The Arizona Cardinals were one of the best offenses in the NFL last year. This year, they are struggling in large part because Carson Palmer is struggling. But Bruce Arians is not helping things one bit with his playcalling, and Warren uses SharpFootballStats.com to demonstrate the specific problem – a problem which is more confounding due to the teams they have faced. Arizona needs to change before this game against the Redskins, but it seems unlikely based on Arians disregarding prior opportunities to change.
