This is the year

Posted 11-25-2022 at 09:52 AM by neugey

This is the year -

for a non-quarterback to win the NFL MVP. We're overdue and there are at least four awesome candidates who deserve consideration. In no particular order:

1) RB Derrick Henry - a very powerful runner with excellent vision. He is without peer among NFL runningbacks because of the sheer force and physical nature of his running. On almost any run, you can pencil him in for 3 yards gained because he's the ultimate fall-forward runner...

Head Coach Material

Posted 11-09-2022 at 08:44 AM by neugey

I was thinking about the reasons Dennis Allen isn't working out, and I think I've solved the puzzle. There is a formula for having a successful NFL (or even college) head coach.

If you are a defensive head coach, you need to have very special leadership abilities to earn your team's buy-in and keep it. If you are an offensive head coach that calls the plays or has a very strong influence on the offensive gameplan/playcalling, and you are adept at it, the bar seems to be lower....

NFL Offenses need to Get Retro

Posted 10-08-2022 at 10:56 AM by neugey

To some extent, yes. The athleticism and range of defensive players in the NFL has never been better across the board. Quarterbacks are having a harder time than usual picking apart zone defenses. Zone coverage, especially the Tampa 2 style, has become much more effective than we've seen in a long time, possibly...

The NFL Has a Sports Medicine Problem (fixed)

Posted 10-01-2022 at 11:07 AM by neugey

After seeing the Tua concussion on Thursday Night Football and listening to a lot of media members speak on the topic, it seems like there is a lot of tunnel vision right now with everyone fixated on solving concussions. It was indeed a scary injury, and I hope Tua will be okay. But due to recency bias, I feel people aren't seeing that the events of this last week are a symptom of a bigger medical problem in the NFL.

I'm not going to be afraid to take big swings in this blog, because...

Sanity Zone March 3, 2022 Misunderstanding Oil

Posted 03-03-2022 at 04:48 PM by xan

Hi all, it's been a LONG time since I posted to my blog. Lot's of factors, but that's in the past. Hopefully some of you will participate in a discussion in the comments section.

At this writing, US consumption of petroleum based products for energy purposes (as opposed to some of the non-energy chemicals like plastics and fertilizers) is roughly 97% of total output. That means that all other sources make up 3%. Solar, wind, nukular (hah) and geothermal are a growing, but...
