Because I honestly dont know how one could find a statistic like this in this exact scenario so please provide.StumpHunter wrote: ↑Tue Sep 21, 2021 1:40 pm
Let me check 2010 on...yep, no examples of a team winning by doing something different in those spots. You know, since they were already included in the results I posted above and there were no examples.
That wasn't one of the plays in the OP...
For that scenario, there isn't a single coach who has called a passing play on 1st, 2nd or 3rd down since 2010 and only 1 team passed in that spot since 1994 and that was to spike the ball.
Every team either ran the ball to kill the clock, took a knee, or kicked a FG. Every. Single. One.
To get full use of it you need to pay 8 bucks a month.
It is how everyone on twitter posts random situational stats to prove points no one ever made are wrong.
I included my parameters for the first one, and did something similar for the rest. I had to make a range of points down, yardage and time remaining to get a large enough sample size, but it was close enough that I am confident that 0 coaches would have done anything different if in the same position. One thing I didn't have to include in the parameters was number of timeouts remaining. Since no teams did anything different, and it is unlikely the Vikings were the first team in that situation to have a timeout remaining, that shouldn't matter.
