SP on Broncos vs. Saints Analytics

https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/nfl...ts/ar-AA1ae1BI

“The analytics department is something that is on a different level here,” Payton said during his pre-draft presser on Thursday. “I’m like that driver of a new car that still hasn’t figured out how to get the seat warmers on. It’s pretty impressive, and it’s new for me in a good way. I’m talking about the efficiency of the process. We weren’t as far ahead [in New Orleans] when we were looking at some of these players as to being able to pick up and access the information as quickly.”

So which one is it?
A) He's telling the truth.
B) He's sucking up to his new bosses.

I'm running with B until I see their draft. Their picks haven't really exactly wowed anyone in the past several years.

Maybe it’s code for “I don’t have as much pull in draft picks as I did with the Saints so no more project guys like Baptiste”.

Give Russell Wilson like $250 million when many say he is in decline. Draft Jerry Jeudy 7 spots ahead of Justin Jefferson. Pass on Josh Allen to take Bradley Chubb. Clearly their analytics are amazing.

So, no more drafts with everyone saying WTF? I'm sure Jeff Ireland and Mickey Loomis consider this a slap in the face and a have issued a challenge for the scouting department to nail the draft this year.

Guess we give it a couple of years and see which team, analytics guru and coach has the best record.

Can probably find a sports book that will have a line on that.

Re: SP on Broncos vs. Saints Analytics

Does it feel like a slight dig at the Saints from SP?

It’s more than slight IMO.

I'm not bothered by it. Analytics are overrated. Let's "worry about our meat" and nail this draft!

Re: SP on Broncos vs. Saints Analytics

He could have said something like “ they approach things differently here”, or “ The draft evaluation process is not the same as they do it in New Orleans”. But he specifically phrased it as Denver is “ahead” of New Orleans. That’s certainly a shot at the organization.
