Scott specializes in researching and creating football data for the public that they cannot find anywhere else. He has worked on such projects for http://www.pro-football-reference.com/ since 2007, including starting QB records, coaching histories, and the first ever standardization of fourth quarter comebacks and game-winning drives for NFL quarterbacks. Scott likes to break down football myths and the conventional wisdom that fuels them. "Perception vs. reality" is a common theme in his writing. Scott values efficiency, and is an advocate for advancing the use of drive statistics in football analysis. After all, the number of drives you get in a game and where you start on the field for them is always different week to week.
