2017 NFL Teams on the Rise/Fall
A reader requested that we follow-up on the 2017 NFL Season Predictions piece, that used Pythagorean Win Theory, Turnover Margins and Net Close Games to give some subjective evidence to which direction teams are heading this upcoming year. He noted, fairly so, that after all the math the rankings are essentially a reverse ranking from the year before, due to a tendency towards the mean.
Hence, I decided to spice it up a bit, and incorporate PowerSweep’s very trustworthy offseason ratings. You can find the pdf here. The numbers speak for themselves. Take a look at the PowerSweep article for more context, but I am very confident/looking forward to the season to track its accuracy.
Football is coming.
