Performance of “Dice Range Calculator” (Sacks)

I’m a big fan of Phil Molloy’s “Dice Range Calculator” to determine receivers and defenders who were awarded a sack or interception versus using the “Locator” boards.  With that being said, I wanted to compare the actual top-12 NFC sack leaders through week 8 of the 2011 season against their replay statistics.  The actual statistics were derived from Pro-Football Reference.com and are listed below in hyperlinks and the replay results are text only.   The big overachiever is Cliff Avril, however, he had a four sack game which contributed to his high sack total. The one underachiever is Osi Umenyiora, but he missed time due to injury during the replay which eliminated some of his opportunities.  The “mode” average of the difference between actual and replay statistics is “1”. In addition, it was nice to see that my “Half-Sack” innovation did not have a negative impact on the overall statistics.
