Blog 1: NFL Football Power Index
— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) August 31, 2015
- The article I chose discusses the metrics system used by sports analysts to decide on which teams will have more future success using statistics and relationships from prior years. I chose this article because I was interested in what statistics play heavily in their suggestive decision.
- The data used within the article written by Sharon Katz, was produced by three members of the analytics team — Brian Burke, Zach Bradshaw, and Alok Pattani. The article produced a questionnaire conducted by Katz and answers were produced from the three members.
- One further question I have following the article is related to the actual formula. Although the team declares pinpointing a distinct formula is difficult to due based on the incredible amount of variables used, is there any data system that a monitor can produce more efficiently?
