Over the past few NFL seasons, we have seen the impact of unconventional coaches and players. Jim Harbaugh took a 6-10 49ers to the NFC Championship in one year and a Super Bowl in two. The New England Patriots have excelled at drafting and signing unconventional players such as Julian Edelman, Danny Woodhead, and Wes Welker. The success of both teams has been driven by their coaching staff’s ability to effectively evaluate talent and make critical strategy decisions. In this years’ football analytics panel we are going to dive deep into three topics: advanced metrics and strategy behind player evaluation, pre-game planning, and in game decision making.
