The Snap Judgment crew, including yours truly, dissects the conference championships. What went wrong with Vick and Roethlisberger, and can anything confuse Tom Brady in the playoffs? Hidden in this column are my initial thoughts on the Super Bowl based on our Football Outsiders statistics, and a unique explanation for Big Ben's troubles from one of this site's (former) writers. I'm trying to name drop everyone from the FO staff before the season ends.
Short-yardage passing had a good year, except at the end of the Super Bowl. We look at the return of quarterback runs, the rise in pass-happy strategy, and 2014 success rates for offense and defense.
