    Football Outsiders: Giants will only win eight games

    http://www.bigblueview.com/2017/5/16...in-eight-games

    Excerpt: "The New York Giants impressed last season, finishing 11-5 and making the playoffs. With the NFL Draft behind us, Aaron Schatz of Football Outsiders put together a post-draft projection for every NFL team.

    Schatz had the Giants putting together a slightly worse record than last season, finishing 8-8. The 8-8 record has the Giants finishing in second place in the NFC East and ninth in the NFC, thus missing the playoffs. He went on to say that the NFC East is the strongest division in football. The Dallas Cowboys finish in first place in the NFC East at 10-6, according to the projection." Read more...

    This same ******bag said similar crap last year.

    **** him.
    "Sir, I was wondering: did you happen to catch the professional football contest on television last night?"
    "No...I didn't."
    "Oh it was most exhilarating: the Giants of NY took on the Packers of Green Bay and in the end the Giants triumphed by kicking an oblong ball made of pigskin through a big H. It was a most ripping victory."

    I love FO.

    They're like PFF without the Collinsworth halo.

    More guys who don't know the game well enough to have an opinion until 2 days after the game ends and the ratings come out.

    Your choice. Innovative analysis, DVOA (one of my faves), efficiency ratings and of course ALEX!

    You might have to elaborate. Are you just anti- any statistics or metrics in general? It seems like it would be a daunting task to be able to compare players across an entire league without attempting to put eyes to math in various ways. I have an open mind though. What's your approach or how do you get a sense of the league as a whole?
