In Praise of Analytical Humility

Man, the public release of all-22 film sure has led to some great blog posts out there. I liked this one not only because it showed you how the Eagles defense does different things with similar pre-snap looks, but also because the author is honest that even though we see so much more with all-22 film, we still can't be sure our analysis of the playcall is correct.

In unrelated news, if I lived in Philly Iggly Puffs would be a great name for a Loser League team.
