This is definetly interesting. It's more than just stats, and it isn't the same "well they gave up 343943 yards and they SUCK!"

Aikman Efficiency Ratings Formula

"The Aikman Efficiency Ratings measure offensive and defensive performance using a combination of seven key statistics identified by Troy, and then measured against league norms (and extremes) established over the last 10 years. An offense or defense performing exactly at league norms in all categories will achieve a score of 75. The better the offense or defense, the higher the score on either scale.

It will take a truly exceptional unit to score more than 90 during an entire season on either the offensive or defensive scale. Higher scores are possible in individual games.

In 2005, AER scores ranged on offense from 92.6 (Seattle) to 60.9 (San Francisco) and on defense from 89.3 (Chicago) to 61.1 (Houston). The seven categories measured are:

Adjusted Points (20%) -- Total Points Scored or Allowed minus Points on Returns and Safeties

Turnovers (20%)

Red Zone Efficiency (20%) -- Measured by Percent of Possible Points (see below)

Yards Per Play -- divided into Yards Per Rush (10% of total) and Yards Per Pass Play (10% of total). Yards Per Pass Play includes yards on plays involving sacks.

First Down Achievement -- divided into Total First Downs (10% of total) and 3rd Down Conversion Percentage (10% of total)

Percentage of Possible Points in the Red Zone is figured by taking the number of Red Zone Chances times 7, then dividing it by the number of Points Actually Scored (defined as TDs times 7 plus FGs times 3). "

it's useless to look for trends in statistics after 2 games. There isn't a large enough sample to draw from to account for anomalies.

the methodology isn't really bad, but it can't be relevant until every team gets at least 6 games under their belt

sorry dude. if you want any hope of a turnaround i suggest you start sacrificing animals to some pagan gods.

in the bucs case, you might have to use children because animals just may not be enough

It's not really interesting. It's tenuous and it's not anymore telling than any other statistic. Just because a math major crunched a bunch of numbers together does not mean it holds a drop of water.

You know football is so complicated that we need stats to give us some sort of insight to the game. Sometimes folks...cough ..cough Nola...make football so complicated. We would need atleast 7 - 8 wks of data for a good baseline.
