Scott is a researcher for Sports Info Solutions and writer for RotoGraphs. He also hosts the Off The Charts podcast with Football Outsiders’ Aaron Schatz.

Host Discussion: Do You Have No Decency, Sir?

Kevin & Matt discuss the advantages of being aggressive in end-of-game situations; why coaches’ increasingly choosing to defer and winning the coin toss is based on a false narrative; and how the coming NFL data revolution will benefit forward-looking teams, like the Cleveland Browns.
