Podcast: Kevin Cole on QBs, predicting the NFL

On this episode of The Football Analytics Show, I’m joined by frequent guest Kevin Cole, data scientist at Pro Football Focus. Among other topics, we discuss:

  • how he used Bayesian statistics and player grades to evaluate Mahomes, Watson and Trubisky (3:34)
  • what the same analysis says about offensive tackles and Laremy Tunsil in particular (9:26)
  • How good is Aaron Rodgers in 2019? (18:00)
  • why QBs should not necessarily minimize their interception rate (23:06)
  • the intriguing AFC team that could snag a playoff bye (31:48)

We also talk about San Francisco, Cleveland and New Orleans in our conversation.

You can check out his NFL QB study here, although it does require a PFF subscription.
