Football is a funky game. It’s played with an oddly shaped ball. There are 22 dudes impacting every play. And an entire season is still a relatively small sample size — just 16 games compared to 82 in the NBA and NHL and 162 in the MLB.
That's why it can be dangerous to put too much stock into the results of a single NFL season. It can convince us that a crappy player is good. Or that a quality player is trash.
The latter is the case with our 2018 Comeback Player.
