Metrics, statistics, advanced statistics, analytics. What should we believe?!

Nick & Nolan bring you a deep dive into the world of advanced statistics, which has taken hold over everyone’s perspective over what is and is not “good” in the NFL.

ESPN, Football Outsiders, Pro Football Focus. Bruce shares where all these things come from and how we got to this place. He also helps break down the most common items you hear about as well as their strengths and weaknesses as a form of evaluation.

Should we worship at the altar of any singular metric? Is there one that’s simply better than the others? Why do they even exist?

No significant Miami preview in this pod. For that check back on Friday to read this week’s edition of Bruce’s “Crumbling their Cookies” article, and listen to Nick’s appearance on The Overtime Podcast from The Cold Front Report on your favorite podcast app.

Come for the knowledge, stay for the soundbites. #gobills #buffalobills #bills #billsmafia
