    I know where he lives. He needs that truck like he needs a hovercraft. Come to think of it, he'd probably come up with more uses for the hovercraft.

    The odds of flipping a coin is set, and never changes. The success rate of NFL players on certain plays changes all the time. Also, when we flip a coin, the same thing happens every time. No two plays in the NFL are the same, have the same players, are executed in the same situation, same time of the game, same down, same score, etc.

    The odds of a coin flip are always 50-50. The odds of the success of a certain play is always unknown. Using previous data helps us get a better handle on the predicting the success of a play, but it plays just one small part in helping us understand the success of a play. We also need to figure out who is playing, who is handling the ball, who is on defense, what the score is, at what point in the game is this happening, what are the matchups, etc.

    To me the biggest factor is who will be the key players in the play. When the game is on the line, and I have two or three plays left to make, do I want to trust it to my dominant running back, who had been nearly unstoppable all game long, or do I want to trust a running QB, whose passing skills are he weakest link?
    You took 40% success and said to get to 80% you just run the play twice.

    I am not making a mistake. You are.

    I imagine Brady started to get a little nauseous at the idea of sitting at his dining room table trying to choke down his dinner knowing that there was a Chevy parked somewhere in his giant garage.

    He doesn't come across as a loud-Red mid sized Chevy kind of dude at all.

    I know right? Gross. I'm sure his Butler will love it though.

    From Rotoworld w/ Rotoworld comments:

    CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports impending free agent Jordan Cameron is "not interested" in re-signing with the Browns.

    Who would choose to remain in that mess of an organization? We can't blame Cameron. Although he's proven to be extremely prone to concussions, Cameron is a major threat when on the field. The former college basketball player is a seam-stretching tight end who averaged 17.7 YPR this past season. He's going to be one of the more interesting free-agent cases to follow in March.
