there is a Vikings homer that posts for PFF and is one of their "data scientists"..Did someone really project cousins as mvp? He'd be 4th in mvp voting on his own offense. Cousins will never be good without great talent around him. He most certainly won't be the best player on a good team
One of their selling points is the predictive capabilities...
from their website
"PFF grading is both descriptive and predictive, and in many cases, we’ve debunked myths about traditional stats, showing that the production grade is a better indicator of what happened on the field and what will happen going forward."
in Fact here is the PFF experts prediction on the division winners and wild card teams from last year.....

The average fan could have done just as good a job......also if they are so scientific, why are so many of their experts disagreeing with each other
also lol at someone predicting Cousins as the league MVP
How do you know what all their clients are doing...they literally advertise predictive powers....of which is about as accurate as any other site....which is what I originally said....thanksThink you are conflating things. They are saying their grade is more predictive of future performance than just the raw stats. That is not saying their prediction of league MVP or division winners is accurate.
And again no one is paying them for those kinds of predictions. That is shit to generate discussion.
You can calculate the correlation between a given state or grade and future performance but unless that correlation is strong it doesnt tell us much.
