Podcast Episode 9 - Brian Burke

Brian Burke is back to discuss momentum, clock management and topics from his weekly roundups. In his recent post on momentum, Brian used three different methods to investigate whether momentum is a measurable phenomenon in NFL games. Dave and Brian discuss why momentum is such a popular concept and hypothesize why coaches and analysts seem to rely so heavily on the idea. They also discuss Brian’s article on clock management, and why it’s unlikely that truly non-zero sum scenarios exist in a football game. They finish up the show with a "rapid fire roundup" of some interesting articles and analysis from around the web.

    Another great podcast, keep up the good work. Virgil Carter is my favourite but all of them have been wonderful listens.

    Re: going for the 2 point conversion early to get information

    Do you think maybe it's just a matter of keeping players motivated? If missing a 2PT conversion reveals the information that the team now needs 2 more scores instead of 1 in order to tie the game (with very limited time remaining), perhaps the coach is worried that some of his players will think its impossible? Maybe it's deflating to them?

    Oddly enough, this episode isn't showing up on the iTunes podcast list for me. All others do, however.
