go down his route

With a defense and special teams both ranked in the middle of the pack, its clear that the Dallas Cowboys hopes this season rest with an offense that is ranked first in Expected Points Added (EPA) per game and EPA per snap. But Dallas is nearing a crossroads at the games most important position. Should they continue to ride rookie sensation Dak Prescott, or lean on veteran Tony Romo?when he returns? Its not as simple as saying, The team has gone 5-1 so far, so lets stick with him. The Cowboys coaches are obviously in the best position to understand each QBs abilities, but it might be wise to add some numbers to the discussion.Prescott has only six starts under his belt, so we dont have a long track record to examine. Theres little doubt hes talented, but when players start out very hot, its very difficult to sustain that level of performance. Usually, many favorable factors have combined to allow such a strong start, and those factors are far from assured to persist. Its not a guarantee, just a strong tendency known as reversion to the mean.To examine this further, I grouped all new starting QBs since 2001 into five quintiles (equally sized groups) according to how well their entire offenses did in their first six starts. Then I compared those performances with how each quintiles offenses did in their next 10 starts. The idea is to look at offenses as a whole, rather than just how the QB himself performs, for two reasons. Dallas has a lot of good pieces around Prescott, and those pieces and his own abilities complement each other. And overall offensive performance is also the thing the Cowboys care about the most -- theyre not in a fantasy league, after all.Prescott is in good company in the top quintile, which includes guys such as?Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Philip Rivers, Ben Roethlisberger?and Cam Newton. But it also includes QBs who faded after hot starts, such as Tim Rattay, Aaron Brooks and Marc Bulger. Trevor Siemian and Carson Wentz, two other notable newcomers to the league, would currently fall into the second-best group.Each of the five quintiles regresses to the mean in a different way, and Prescotts Cowboys would fall into the top quintile that holds on to much of its high level of performance through the next 10 starts. We can expect the Dallas offense to regress similarly, in the manner reflected in the graph below.Accounting for that regression, Prescotts Cowboys can expect to average about .09 EPA per snap, which would still be excellent, about sixth or seventh in the league. For context, over a typical game of about 67 plays, .09 EPA per snap would translate into about +4 net points above the league average (.03 EPA per snap is the league average so far in 2016). But how does this compare with what we would expect from Romo?The Cowboys offensive production during Romos career averages .07 EPA per snap, or about +3 net points per game above average, slightly less than what we might expect with Prescott. But in his last 32 starts, Dallas has performed slightly better, at .09 EPA per snap, or about +4 net points above average per game.There are many considerations we havent accounted for, such as Romos age and associated injury concerns, Dez Bryants absence or presence, or opponent strength. But by seeing how top offenses tend to perform after hot starts under new QBs, we can get a rough approximation of what to expect through the rest of the regular season. The results of this exercise show that, analytically speaking, the Cowboys can feel justified going with either quarterback.China Jerseys 2022 . PETERSBURG, Fla. China Jerseys 2020 .

Former England captain Nasser Hussain thinks Alastair Cook should be able to decide which style of helmet he wears I think it is wrong for the ECB to be telling the England captain that he has to change to his visor, Cork told Sky Sports News HQ.I get the safety element that is needed for children and academy players but it should be down to the player - if he feels it is right to go down his route, then he should. If itt means they have to sign a disclaimer, then great.dddddddddddd.I just find it hard that the ECB are trying to tell county cricketers and England cricketers that they have to change a visor or put in one that doesnt move. Cook is 36 runs shy of 10,000 in Test matches Cooks century at Hove was his second of the County Championship campaign, with the left-hander also striking 105 against Gloucestershire in his first game of the season.Hampshires James Vince, meanwhile, scored 119 against defending champions Yorkshire at Headingley this week and Cork reckons his former county colleague should now join Cook in the England Test team.Vince is a must, Cork said of the 25-year-old, who played once for England in the recent World T20 in India, making 22 from 18 balls against Afghanistan. County team of the week Cook and Vince make this weeks XI I have been calling for him to be in the England side in all forms for some time as he is a sensational player.He has matured as a person and as a batsman and I think now is the time to give him the responsibility of batting five or six for England in Test cricket and let him show he is the real deal.Watch Englands three-Test series with Sri Lanka, live on Sky Sports, starting with the first Test at Headingley from 10am on Thursday, May 19.Also See:Cook hits ton for EssexCounty team of the weekEngland fixtures/resultsLancs earn opening win ' ' '
