AGL 2022: Injuries Help Lead to Broncos Trainwreck
Injuries were a big part of the problem for the Broncos last year, as demonstrated by our 2022 adjusted games lost numbers.
the entire thing is pretty good -- and just to head off a response: i dont think injuries were the Cardinals only problem last year, but i think its clear they were a factor.
Overall -- the Cards tied for 27th (with TB) with 114 adjusted games lost in 2022.
the offense suffered the most: the Cards finished 30th with 79.4 adjusted games lost on that side of the ball.
the Eagles and Chiefs finished 3rd and 4th respectively overall with the fewest adjusted games lost. A good roster + good health sure seems like a ticket to a deep playoff run.
supporting the "injuries weren't their only problem": three teams in the bottom 10 or so made the playoffs-- Tampa, NY Giants, and SF.
one last thing:
- Denver has ranked in the bottom 10 for AGL for four straight seasons.
- Arizona has ranked below 20th in AGL for seven straight seasons.
- Washington has ranked below 20th in AGL for nine straight seasons.
- San Francisco has ranked below 20th in AGL for a remarkable 10 straight seasons.
