On to the draft and other post season shuffling.
The season was another roller coaster ride. The Seahawks were good enough to exceed expectations but not quite good enough to make a serious dent in post season play.
The zero line represents the opponent's season average points scored and allowed. The y-axis is also used to show Seahawk's actual game results for points scored and allowed.
Lines & Points
Note: These are team points and averages. They represent team results. They are not strictly offense and defense, although most of the points scored are by the offense and most of the points allowed are by the defense.
Green - Points scored (the green line across the graph is the average)
Yellow - Points allowed (the yellow line across the graph is the average)
Red - Points scored vs opponent's points allowed season average
Blue - Points allowed vs opponent's points scored season average
Thin Red and Blue wavy lines - Moving 4-week Average (MA)
Since there are so few games, the MA lines are just a visual confirmation of what you see with the actual game results. The other types of trend lines give exaggerated results with so few data points (linear, power, logarithmic, etc.).
- 3 or 5 game trends
- Any other thing that can influence the performance.
