Doesn’t every team have a couple of these guys on the payroll? Stat nerds?
Typically more than a couple guys. The terms for this field is analytics.

Teams have analytics departments, in addition to typically some external consultants and paying for external data services.

Wasn't that one of Big Mike's campaign promises at his initial presser? That he was going to put together a massive technology and analytics department? That's how I remember it.

Four years later he finally delivers by hiring JOHN PARK.

The Cowboys next Gil Brandt?
They had a guy, Tom Robinson, who retired a month or two ago. Needed to replace him, and they did.

Don't think this is significant one way or another.

Mike would not be in any position to build a department or to hire/fire analytics staff. That stuff is handled by executive front office.

Sounds like in simple terms this guy is brought in to audit the coaches and scouts to make sure they are doing their job instead of sitting around eating donuts and drinking coffee.

The recent trend in MLB is having Ivy League types as GMs.
An "Ivy League" education is NOT what it was 20 years ago when it did have meaning. Do you want an MBA? Sure, we'll be happy to print out a diploma for you but it's gonna cost $$$$$$$$.

Does he also calibrate Rowdy's golf cart so he can't go too fast almost hitting cheerleaders.
I think it was 12 yers ago, they banned him from being on the field at the same time as he almost hit one.

He's the guy who covers up things like the Callaway arrest so Dallas doesn't have to fire any other players.
Callaway's class c misdemeanor traffic violation arrest, right we need to cover that up given the fact he never played snap for us never truly on the team, doubt he made the roster but hey Callaway should be in prison for that what career criminal a few PED violations and class c misdemeanor. mans a mastermind criminal that needs a coverup. maybe the eagles should hire one to coverup the draftees who are already far worse criminals the zone drooled over their picks But hey its a jerry thing.. yes carter killed TWO HUMANS in felony related traffic accident. should we go to the eagles site and mock the owner??

smh good try more nonsense replies.. bunch of self-proclaimed comics in here that area really just dog balloon twisters at Childrens parties. mock every move jerry or any player or coach you dont like but the rest of the league having many more violators get a pass... :facepalm:

Has anyone shown where these guys make a difference in wins and losses?

If not, more bureaucrats is NEVER a good thing.

I'm surprised AI isn't replacing this type of job, I mean it will for sure in the future.

The VP and director levels will probably always be safe, but AI is bad news for any aspiring analytics interns, or anyone with the word "specialist" in their job title.

Who peed in your Cheerios this morning? It was a joke based on the title of this guy's position, director of strategic football operations. If you don't like the joke, that's fine but the only one comparing what Callaway did to what Carter did is you.
