Podcast: Josh Hermsmeyer on analyzing the NFL

On this episode of The Football Analytics Show, Josh Hermsmeyer of FiveThirtyEight joins me. You can also find his work at his own site AirYards and Establish the Run.

Among other topics, we discuss:

  • why Josh considers himself an analyst, which leads to a discussion of data vs watching film (2:16)
  • whether play action loses its effectiveness the more its run (6:45)
  • how NFL general managers fare after winning executive of the year (15:35)
  • the prospects for Antonio Brown in Oakland (18:22)
  • the overrated team heading into the 2019 NFL season (23:50)

Josh is one of the best in the business, and I think you’ll enjoy the entire conversation.
