Welcome to By The Numbers, a new blog that will supplement our coverage of the Cardinals with an analytical slant.
Even though the team will always be judged by its win-loss record, a deeper look at the numbers can help explain how that destination was ultimately reached.
While the posts will be numbers-driven, a wide net will still be cast. Some topics may center on a simple number that can be used as a jumping off point. Others will attempt to identify trends that may affect the team moving forward. The offseason will bring talk of salary cap and roster construction.
The biggest thrill in the NFL comes on game day, when anticipation finally switches to reality. This blog will aim to add context, diving into different statistics that play a role in the results on the field.
Check back regularly, as there will be no shortage of topics with training camp in full swing.
