A Few More Super Bowl Stats From A Former Coach
In light of an earlier post about the role of situational statistics in football, there seems to be a statistical interest in three of New Orleans Saints Coach Sean Payton's decisions during the game: His decision to go for a touchdown on fourth and goal late in the first half, his decision onside kick at the start of the second half, and going for a two-point conversion after a touchdown late in the game. An interesting analysis of all three are found in the post Who 'Dat Gonna Kick Onside to Start the Second Half? at Brian Burke's Advanced NFL Stats.
