Oakland Raiders: Get Ready for a Showdown, Throw-Down, Touchdown

Gearing up for the 2010 Season in Many Ways

Most of the sports stores in Texas display the stuff from the Texas teams. Some friends finally found a store that had all types of Oakland Raiders gear.

All I can say is that it is time to shop, because the regular season is so near.

It is time to gear up in many ways to get ready for the 2010 regular season.

Next, a good sports bar with lots of big screens was identified. And, while reading the menu we saw "fried pickles" and all types of tasty dishes.

The game between the Cleveland Browns and the Green Bay Packers was in full view on the screens in the sports restaurant.


There May Be More Patterns

Having done a so-called "stamina" study of the Oakland Raiders and the Denver Broncos, it was time to do pattern recognition for the Browns and Green Bay. The temptation to make connections was rising up in the spirit of this researcher.

Once a good model is developed and tested, this researcher and other colleagues like Dr. Rod just might be onto something in discovering new ways of looking at the NFL data.

Here is the data similar to the article published on yesterday. Are there correlations? If not, all it means if that the model needs to be tweaked, revised, extended, and so forth.

The model is descriptive.

Yes, there is an awareness of probabilities and stochastic processes, but that type of stuff can be added later after collaboration with some other sports enthusiasts.


Testing the Model on Other Teams

The search to characterize what is happening on the field is an ongoing process, and lazy thinkers cannot endure the task and challenge. The chart below is for the last four games of the seasons from 2005 to 2009.
