Re: Re: I freaking love this guy (Jameis)


Biggs, can you cross reference that with the PFF deep passing stats? I'd be interested in a more thorough look at the league in general to put the ESPN stats in context. I've seen them play games with their stats. Like including all 70+ QBs who threw NFL passes in 2015 to come up with "ranked 30th among NFL quarterbacks" line.  I'd also be curious what the NFL average is on 40+ yard air throws. 2/7 (28%) sounds very reasonable to me tbh.

IIRC, ESPN partnered with PFF for their stats and info.  So I think that is PFF's number.You could be right, that number could include some back-up QB's.  But that's still a bad thing if back-ups are coming in and slinging bombs at a higher percentage.

The article specified it was from ESPN Stats & Info.I consider what a stand in QB did on an extremely small sample stastically irrelevant compared against starters who played most/all their team's snaps. Had the article included "among qualifying quarterbacks", I wouldn't have questioned it. There is no question Jameis was way off Mike Evans deep last season. Puzzlingly off compared to the rest of his throws, imo.  I do agree it is a problem area, and I expect him to improve at it.

Mike had something like 5-6 drops last season, not sure if any of those were deep balls. And another factor is, we don't have an Antonio Brown type.
