Season previews in their usual form are a waste of time. Look at the MMQB Saints preview as an example: It’s speculation based on mostly-truths and mediocre opinions smoothly packaged under a respected brand.1 One goal of ours at B&G is to base our preseason speculation on funny attempts to quantify unquantifiable football things, so that, when we’re wrong, we can blame the stats we just invented.
For 2014, I have probably the worst predictive statistic ever. I also think I believe in it. Ryan and I call it ODR. I decided just now to pronounce it “Hodor.”

"But a bigger part of it is just laziness — bad writing, bad form, an emphasis on controversy over writing talent, or more accurately the inclination to use talent. A lot of the major sports columnists of the moment are just bad writers who bring other lucrative skills to the great page view feeding frenzy. But as many are actually good writers who choose not to write good things, because the easy way is easier."

When the Saints Broke the Legion of Boom

Crazy plays like this one were part of a 17 minute period in which the Saints eviscerated Seattle’s legendary defense.

According to America, the most memorable play in Saints history is “Ambush,” the onsides kick Sean Payton called to open the second half of Super Bowl XLIV. A February 8, 2010 headline from NJ.com, the New Jersey Star-Ledger website, sums up how “Ambush” is popularly viewed: “Saints’ successful onsides kick shocks Colts, changes momentum of Super Bowl.” This popular view explains why America voted the way it did.
It’s also wrong.
