Last year was the first time that we looked at "Preseason Performance Rankings". As we said in the article "2009 NFL Preseason Performance Rankings", we do not put a great deal of importance on preseason data. However, when we look back with 20/20 hindsight, we see some interesting things.
Seven of the top 12 teams on that list became seven of football jerseys
the 12 playoff teams in 2009. Two of those teams – the Jets and Bengals--were teams that we would have thought were long shots to make the playoffs. The Saints, the number one team on the list, won the Super Bowl. The top 12 teams went on to have a combined 107-85 record (a 0.557 winning percentage) while the bottom 12 teams finished with a 76-116 record (a 0.395 winning percentage).
One of the reasons we did the article in 2009 was to highlight how low the Chargers, an expected playoff team, were on last season’s rankings. In fact, there were down at 31. As it turned out, the Chargers did make the playoffs as everyone expected, so Pittsburgh Steelers jersey
being low on the Preseason Performance Rankings is not a kiss of death. That’s good news for the Colts, Patriots and Cowboys’ fans whose teams occupy three of the bottom four positions on this year’s PossessionPoints.com Preseason Performance Rankings.
Our Performance Rankings are an objective list of a team’s "Relative Performance Measure" (RPM). This measure is based on in-game offensive and defensive PossessionPoints statistics that we developed. We have provided several links at the end of this article for Dallas Cowboys jersey
those that want to read more about the RPM and why it is significant.
Last year’s chart was done after just three preseason games. We omitted the final week since those games often feature soon- to- be- cut players. We did the same thing for this season, and below is the 2010 chart.
