Gents merry happy end of whatever the *beep* that *beep*ing piece of *beep* year/season was.
In the spirit of how *beep*ed it was, I wanted to make a request for an article or a POD topic.
Injury impact on season success and super bowl outcomes. Looked at quantitatively through the data point of active roster value as a % of total cap spent.
I spent some time looking at this week by week this year and it was interesting. You’ll recall that the broncos were at about 50% active cap to the buccs c. 90% in week 3.
We always talk about injuries “being an excuse and everyone has them” but my hypothesis is that they are actually the single greatest determinant of success.
I’m not suggesting that the least injured team wins the super bowl every year, as there is no single factor to drive such an outcome. But I’d suggest it would heavily influence it, as well as playoff participation and overall season performance.
Happy to chat with any of you if want to do some data work together on it. I annoy the *beep* out of each of you enough on Twitter for you to be able to find me.
