2012 Play-Action, Defense - Mike Ridley

Does this mean that running these numbers is completely meaningless? Honestly, we're not sure. There was correlation with defense against play-action between 2009 and 2010, with a correlation coefficient of .28.

Kevin was the Midwest-area scout this past season for the Jets. Before that he spent a number of years with the Indianapolis Colts. Kevin is a Chicago native who before he got into scouting was the head coach at St. Viator’s in the tough Chicago Suburban Catholic League. Like the other guys on this list, Kevin is a tireless worker. He is the type who is the first scout in the film room and the last one to leave. He barely says a word; he just grinds away and gets his work done.
