STATS

Post  Admin on Sat Feb 23, 2008 4:48 am

So I decided to compare our league stats to the 2007 NFL season stats to see how the 7 minute Qrts worked out. Here are some comparisons.

CFL
Total OFF: New Orleans 368.5 YPG
PASS YPG: Browns 222 YPG
RUSH YPG: New Orleans 189 YPG
POINTS FOR: New Orleans 35.8 PPG
POINTS AGAINST: CHARGERS 15.4

NFL
Total OFF: PATS 411 YPG; Packers 370 YPG
Pass YPG: PATS 295 YPG; Packers 270 YPG
Rush YPG: VIKINGS 165 YPG
POINTS FOR: PATS 37.8 PPG; COWBOYS 28.5
POINTS AGAINST: COLTS 16.4

Everything looks really good. The Pats stats obviously skew things a bit do to there cheating... Suspect .

Still the only thing that is causing problems is people giving an unrealistic percentage of there RBs carries to there Number 1 back. If people use there 2nd and even 3 rd backs a little more everything will be perfect as far as the stats. For season 2 I may implement more guidelines on involving your 2nd back a little more and people that dont will be punished by having that player suspended for the next game.

Lets finish the season strong and amp up for Season 2, where things will be a little more stable and active.

All season long, when talking about Shaun Alexander’s problems, you’ve seen us refer to the “Curse of 370.” You’ve also seen that term as we tracked Larry Johnson’s high number of carries all season long. Now that Johnson has set the NFL record with 416 carries in the regular season, the “Curse of 370″ is showing up in everything written by Football Outsiders.

We wanted to help those who were new to our site understand the Curse of 370, which is something we’ve been writing about for three years. The first article about 370 carries appeared in the book Pro Football Forecast 2004, and was also published on our site when Ricky Williams retired in July 2004. You’ll find that article here. A sequel article appeared in the Seattle chapter of Pro Football Prospectus 2006, and it is republished in its entirety below.

Just so people understand, there’s nothing magical about carry number 370 that makes a running back blow out his ACL, any more than there is something special about pitch 100 that makes a pitcher’s arm fall off. It’s simply a useful shorthand to represent the fact that overworking your running back with too many carries is a bad thing. The punishment gets worse and worse with more carries, and 370 is a close approximation of the tipping point.

The 370 mark equals out to 23 ish carries per game.
