BILLICK: SMALL NFL STAT MAKES BIG DIFFERENCE – Prior to calling this Sunday’s Cardinals-Jets matchup Super Bowl-winning coach Brian Billick offered his thoughts on a stat he used during his coaching days that gives a better indication of team success: Toxic Differential. “It essentially combines turnover differential with explosive play differential (defined as plays gaining more than 20 yards). It’s not merely good enough to avoid turning the ball over; you need to generate big offensive plays as well. On defense, you can’t just sit back and play a deep prevent defense all the time; you have to generate turnovers as well. On both sides of the ball, gambling to generate a big play often leaves you open to committing a big error. Toxic Differential does a good job at showing how teams balance risk and reward.”
