Why did Bill Belichick spend money on a running back? How does toxic differential explain the Patriots’ latest Super Bowl victory? And – hold on a second – what is toxic differential? How valuable was Mike Evans? What does DeSean Jackson do for him and Jameis Winston? What makes Aaron Rodgers – well – Aaron Rodgers?
These are questions that used to only be addressed with inadequate and antiquated metrics. They left those asking the questions with unquantifiable answers that essentially amounted to a pass-fail grade from the expert’s eye test. With STATS ICE and X-Info, anyone settling for that eye test isn’t completing the job.
