All this and Bob's stuff is consistent with what I do. That's good.
We're all on the same page. Kevin is pointing at a points per 100
play number, which I don't calculate much. I look at the difference
shown above between Sac and NJ as pretty much noise. Estimates of
plays and possessions are good to just under 1%, so differences of
less than 1 in these numbers aren't really differences.
