Enjoyed this as always, Scott. As a relative newcomer to advanced football stats, it's hard to evaluate numbers like Progressive Carries or Long Pass Completion %% without knowing what is a "good" or "bad" number for those stats. By contrast, in baseball I know that an OPS above .900 is very good, or in basketball a 3-point percentage above 40% is very good, etc. Is there data somewhere that helps explain what to look for in those sorts of stats? I realize it's a bit harder to benchmark those given shifts in formations and positioning in football that don't exist in those other sports. Anyway, would love your thoughts.
