Former NFL scout Matt Manocherian (@mattmano) of Sports Info Solutions and football analytics pioneer Aaron Schatz (@FO_ASchatz) of Football Outsiders (@fboutsiders) dive into the 2020 Football Outsiders Almanac, which is now available for purchase. They open with a discussion about what's different in this year's book (2:26), potential updates that were considered for the "Pregame Show" section (5:11), and favorite quotes from "The Year in Quotes" (10:14). They then examine interesting projections from the book, including why the Ravens are a bit lower than expected (11:03), why the Steelers are a bit higher than expected (12:49), the Patriots and Bills atop the AFC East (15:04), the very even NFC West (16:30), the Lions as the biggest surprise (19:29), and the Vikings and Browns as most likely to outperform their projections (25:51). The episode closes with the Random Page Game, which includes talk about the Colts having the easiest schedule (29:41), Tom Brady, Drew Brees, and Teddy Bridgewater comparisons (30:50), and NCAA football projections (which are already off due to the schedule changes) (32:55).
