The surprising truth about passing and rushing in the NFL

The NFL teams with the top picks in the 2018 draft should not pick Saquon Barkley. The Penn State running back has immense talent and could become a star. But will he make a team better?

You know passing matters in the NFL. Quarterbacks stay in the media spotlight while pass rushers and cornerbacks get ever larger contracts. But does running the ball matter in the NFL?

My booklet The Surprising Truth About Passing and Rushing in the NFL digs into the analytics behind the relative importance of these two types of plays. Among other topics, it discusses:

  • The shocking approach that Bill Belichick took for the Giants in the 1991 Super Bowl
  • How often good passing versus rushing teams make the playoffs
  • The problem Bill Walsh had in Cincinnati in the 1960’s
  • The most efficient play in the NFL
  • How to save time in handicapping the NFL
