    And how many QBs have each of those two teams alone tried?  Including multiple 1st round selections?

     

    To be fair, for Cleveland:

     

    From 2000 to today, they selected 4 QB. Only Mayfield was a top 10 pick.

     

    And for Jaguars:

     

    3QBs, all on top 10.

     

    The thing about the draft is you need to have a good scout team. And sometimes, of course, there will be a gamble.

    Everyone keeps saying he can’t throw the deep ball. Anyone ever consider that Reich is scheming to not throw it because of the lack of playmakers at WR. Below is his ranking form 2017 according to PFF

    Well, it already has been discussed this topic time and time again. In every game our WR appears free for some deep passes, but JB never sees them or he just ignore them.

  3. Man, congratulations @SteelCityColt really. This post is simply amazing in all aspects of it.

     

    Like @EastStreet said, I wish that some people on the forum read it so we can stop talking some nonsense lol.

     

    Now about the post. I kind of fell in love with ANY/A right now, really. It's a very nice stat to measure QB play, as stated on the post. As about the correlation of the third downs (and about downs, sacks etc), I guess that the situation and othe variables plays a huge amount on the weight of these ones. So I ain't too surprised by that in the end.

     

    You can say that about the turnovers too.

     

    Well, congrats again, and now I'm eager for part 2 lol

  4. I guess the point about the stats in which @SteelCityColt is showing us, is not about predict with 100% accuracy, but to only show us that most of the time, when a team have "X YPA" or "Z YPG" or whatever, the win or lose.

     

    It's obvious that you'll never predict all the games, and to be fair, it's crazy to think that people keep saying that he wants to only use stat and never consider any other thing. There will be upsets, bad teams can sometimes win against good teams, but like the stats show MOST of the time, it'll happen as the history (and stats) show us.

    I think he's a game time decision. Nothing said publicly so far. Maybe he'll come out of the tunnel suited up with a clown mask on :-).

     

    I'd really like to have TY back, but I think the passing game will be fine without him to be honest. Houston is one of the worst passing Ds to begin with, and they have arguably their best DB out (SS Reid), two other starters (hamstring and back) game time decisions, and 2 other depth DBs out.

     

    Our TEs should be on fire tonight with Reid out. We could really exploit them deep too if JB is willing to go there. 

    And just imagine, with all those injuries on their secondaries, if TY plays. God, a massacre would insue.

    I said a while back, the Colts will be just fine as I believe this man is an upgrade over Andrew Luck.  He has heart and wants to play.  Andy proved what I thought, no heart, would step aside.

    He can have all the heart he wants, but at the end of the day, what matters is his performance. 

     

    About the OP, it's nice to see all the stats in one post. If JB could just turn up a notch in terms of YPA, we would've a very nice offense, even with this group of WR.

     

    As a matter of curiosity, why didn't you used the PIT and MIA stats?

    I never called Reich a bad coach, and I never complained that he was costing us games. Don't do this strawman stuff, please.

     

    And how do you know he doesn't feel comfortable with screen passes? He called one on third and 19 and it converted. He calls play action, just at about the same clip as every other typical NFL play caller.

     

    I've been saying since 2013 that I think it's time for someone to test the upper limits of the play action threshold. I'd love for that to be this year's Colts, especially since we have a capable rushing attack. But I'll even settle for 10% more play action, with some of those PA attempts coming from under center.

     

    I promise that if it's not successful (however we're qualifying "success"), I won't call for Reich to be fired because he called too much play action. Scouts honor.

     

    I really can't think of any incredible good motive to not use more PA. It would at least help Brissett on the passing game.

     

    I've been asking myself every game this same question: Why? Why wouldn't we abuse of the PA when (mainly) our running games is destroying the competition.

     

    Well, I guess that's one more question to a season full of them.

    Pretty much my whole understanding of how the cap actually works came from @Superman's posts. Why I joined the forum in the first place really. It's hard when there the people in real life who know the NFL and few and far between. 

    I feel you. Where I live no one knows nothing about the more in-depth stuff, so I just focus on searching and learning by myself. You guys are cool :)

     

    I guess I'll start to lurk less and participate more lol

    WR - nah... - people expecting high flying WRs and TEs with a non-vertical QB and a conservative offense are fooling themselves. Most receiver's production is down (including TY/Ebron/Doyle), and it's not hard to figure out why.

     

    Jackpot here.

     

    C'mon people, our WR is kinda fine. It could've a upgrade, but it's nothing so serious right now. Most of the problems with our receivers are tied with how our QB is reading the field and progressions.

     

    So please, stop talking a little about how we should go find a awesome WR or things like that.

    A few thoughts:

     

    So the oline is worse this year because we don't have a$125mil franchise QB?

     

    I get it, but then that logic says in order to justify devoting high draft picks to an oline, we need to invest a lot of capital in a QB.

     

    Also, JBs hold time might be longer than Luck's was last year, and that accounts for the "drop off" in oline play.  But Luck's hold time during the Chud years  was some of the highest in the NFL, but nobody ever used that fact to give that oline excuses.  They just pounded on the quality of the oline, but now its different I guess.

     

    What is the proper balance between oline talent and QB talent?  

     

    The point is that with Chud's offense, almost all passing plays were long developing routes. In Reich's offense, many passing plays have quicker routes for the QB to throw. Last year Luck got the ball off quickly, and since the system is the same, Brissett is holding longer by his own account.
