  1. Average Air Yards Differential (AYD) - did you notice Drew Brees is the worst passer in this category? Air Yards Differential is calculated by subtracting the passer’s average Intended Air Yards from his average Completed Air Yards. This stat indicates if he is on average attempting deep passes than he on average completes. He may be highest "air yards per attempt", but his 6.3 YPA is only bested by Josh Rosen. Cam torched the league his rookie year. Remember when he threw for 400 yards in his first start? Josh is a far better runner than advertised, but he's not in the same ballpark as Cam throwing the ball.
  2. Allen doesn't get the benefit of the doubt. Rodgers does.

    Big Bucks next year, what to spend on, what to draft?

    Offensive talent of any shape and form.
  4. As usual, Teflon Josh is in full effect. Stats don't matter for this guy. Everything can be explained away. 2BD loves to talk about Allen's drops & throwaways and come up with some adjusted completion percentage. Of course, we don't do this for the other 31 QBs, so it's a very accurate comparison. Did anyone see the Fox stats about Aaron Rodgers and his 50 throwaways? No other team has more than 30!
  5. He'll play again, no doubt. He's talented enough for NFL teams to overlook the incident. I don't expect the Bills to go after him, but stranger things have happened. There has been no shortage of smoke around Shady lately. On a side note, I don't know why these star athletes allow their crew to have cameras when they go out. Seriously. Go rent out a bar, arrange transportation there, hire security, allow no cameras and random ass people to show up, have a good time, arrange transportation home, repeat.
  6. NCAA numbers: https://www.sbnation.com/nfl/2018/4/24/17271686/josh-allen-nfl-draft-2018-stats-analysis-comparisons NFL numbers....pretty straight forward. He's the 33rd rated PFF passer, and if you want to get into total and rate stats, his numbers are in the bottom 20%. I hope there is a day where all the stats scream "Hey, Josh is a top 10 QB!", but they never did leading up to the draft, and they are nowhere near that now.
  7. Fair enough. "Isn't that bad" to me means that he's at least average, I don't see average accuracy out of Josh. I could throw some statistics out there on the matter, but there's no need. We all know he becomes "Teflon Josh" whenever you want to find numbers that support the hype.
  8. There are many positive attributes I see with Josh, but great accuracy? Nope.
  9. Pretty much my feelings on J.A. right now. I'm sick of glorifying 180 yard, 1 TD performances. Give me 310 yards and 3 TDs with no picks, 8.0 YPA, and 66% completion. It doesn't have to happen weekly, but I want to see a few of those out of Allen before I start jumping with joy.
  10. From a yardage perspective, we're #1 in the league against the pass and #2 in total defense. PPG is poor, but I think that's more reflective of terrible offensive play that doesn't allow us to control the time of procession. It just doesn't matter as much as it used to. A top 5 offense is worth substantially more than a top 5 defense, and you should build your team accordingly.
  11. Elite teams have off games. Thursday on the road? Yeah, the Saints hit the snooze button. This was not an example of anything. Saints will drop a 40 burger on the Bucs next week and we'll forget all about this.

    LeVeon Bell: What better fit for him than Buffalo?

    The reality of free agency is that you're going to overpay. There are plenty of teams with cap space and young QBs that they want to surround with talent.

    Nice game but Allen needs to pass

    I think his progression is tied with the scheme and chemistry with teammates. Do I think he's becoming a more efficient and consistent passer? Not really.

    Nice game but Allen needs to pass

    Good post. I generally agree, and do feel that Allen has progressed, although not as much as others. I don't mind that he runs the ball. It's not ideal long term, but he's a rookie, have at it. Let the guy get first downs and build some momentum and confidence. Keep doing it until a defense can stop it. We've been spoiled this year by the sheer brilliance of many QBs. 9+ YPA, 70%+ completion, 400+ yard performances, ridiculous TD/INT rates, etc. I love all of that, and want Allen to be a part of that club, but until he starts "slicing and dicing" defenses, I have my concerns he'll get there.

    I may have been wrong about McCaffrey

    Elite playmakers will always go high in the draft. While I question a team like the Giants getting Barkley, he's clearly been a tremendous player and will be a major help to their new QB. The league is transitioning toward RBs that have equal ability running and catching the ball, with the ability to line up anywhere on the field. Barkley, Kamara, Hunt and McCaffery are the new ideal. I don't think you can count on finding those guys outside the 1st long term. As teams wisen up, Hunt & Kamara types are NOT going to fall through the cracks.
