#103 - Go for It! A Discussion on Analytics and Football with Matthew Sentes
Get your pens, paper and calculators out because 3rd & Wrong is talking analytics on Episode 103 with the help of Lethbridge football coach, Matthew Sentes.Matthew guides us through the hot topics of where analytics and traditionalist football have come to a crossroads in recent times. We start with coaching decisions on 3rd down (Canadian) and 4th down (American) in key situations and what the numbers tell us as far as the best decision in those moments. Matt LeFleur's heavily scrutinized 4th down decision to kick a field goal in the 2020 NFC Championship game vs Tampa Bay was discussed. Next, we discuss the big analytics elephant in the room; passing versus running. How much should a team pass? How little should they run? Does it vary between leagues, levels and teams? Matthew helps us make sense of it all as we tackle the traditionalist views on "establishing the run" and if there is any truth to the adage. Finally, we discuss momentum and if there is a tangible way to measure this as well as which positions matter more and where pro-football teams in both the CFL, XFL and NFL should be allocating cash and high draft picks.As a bonus, Matthew gives youth, high school and semi-pro football coaches everywhere advice on how they can begin to apply analytics to the teams they coach. Be sure to listen to the end to find out! You can find Matthew's work on his website and be sure to follow him on Twitter as well!Twitter: @matthew_sentesWebsite: Big Play ActionAs always, thanks for listening.
