A Statistical Breakdown of the Top Pass Rushers (Pt. 1, Sacks)

February 27, 2013


Pass rushers are one of the most coveted positions, and thus one of the most scrutinized. We hear about this guy’s stiff hips or that guy’s long arms, I’m not going to talk about that. However, because pass rushers are so important, I’m going to break them into two parts. The first part (this one) […]

Was Tyler Wilson Really Better in 2011? A Statistical Breakdown

February 21, 2013


Here are previous Tyler Wilson articles: Smith, Barkley, Wilson, and Glennon: A Metrics Breakdown Tyler Wilson: A Statistical Scouting Report When writing the Tyler Wilson scouting report, I discussed at length the narrative surrounding Tyler Wilson’s ‘weak arm’.

Milliner, Banks and Rhodes – A Metrics Breakdown

February 18, 2013


My personal philosophy is that a team can never have enough cornerbacks. It is ironic then that this is the first year I’ve charted anything related to the secondary.

To that point, I’ve come across two distinct groups while perusing the message boards, those who think Tyler Eifert is the best TE and those who believe it’s Zach Ertz. Each group tends to believe their choice is […]

Why Matt Barkley Wasn’t Worse This Year: A Metrics Breakdown

February 11, 2013


I don’t think Barkley was much worse, if at all this year. It all started last year when I incorrectly assumed Barkley would be coming out, so naturally I did a lot of work on his statistics. One turn of a Christmas ornament rendered all my work moot, but luckily I get to use it […]

Zac Dysert: Statistical Scouting Report

February 8, 2013


To see the other scouting reports: Ryan Nassib | EJ Manuel | Zac Dysert I’ll admit, I saw Zac Dysert in person in 2009 when Miami (OH) played Northwestern at Ryan Field. That game, as a freshman, Dysert went 17/36 with 3 interceptions. Needless to say I didn’t think I’d be writing about him four […]
