It fluctuates because it comes down to players concentrating and eliminating mistakes. As I said in my earlier post, much of this comes down to coaching and discipline. The 90s Cowboys had some lapses...until Jimmy got on their tails..and then things magically perked up. Not sure how this isn't obvious.
"No, you see, we won games that was a perfect example of how we had "attitude", and then we lost some games, so obviously we didn't have "attitude", and then we won some more games so we obviously had "attitude", then a week where we lost a game where we didn't have "attitude", and then won a game because we regained "atittude".
I really just got into the wrong field. I would love to work in a field were random sampling variance could be attributed to voodoo and superstition. Unfortunately, I have a field where a methodology is deemed useless until sustainable and predictable results are obtained using it.
