QB Fumble % - Cam does very well

12 posts in this topic

One thing I noticed several times during the season was how Cam was very good at holding on to the ball when defenders would get to his blind side and hack at his arm or hand while he's about to throw. With most QBs, that'd be a fumble, but I was impressed with his single-handed grip on the ball. The guy must have huge mits.

That said, I looked at some stats on pro-football-reference.com and while there's no official stat for % of plays that results in a fumble for QBs, I put together an unofficial stat sheet. Obviously variables that can't be taken into consideration are the strength of o-line/protection, quick-strike passes, etc. But just to get an idea of about where the Panthers rate, here's the ranking for just QB fumbles as a % of (pass attempts + QB rush attempts). To keep the list manageable, I included only those with at least 200 pass attempts.

1 - D Brees - .15

2 - C Palmer - .58

3 - A Rodgers - .71

4 - M Stafford - .73

5 - M Hasselbeck - .74

6 - C Newton - .78

7 - M Ryan - .83

8 - A Dalton - .90

9 - T Brady - .92

10 - M Schaub - .98

11 - R Fitzpatrick - 1.12

12 - E Manning - 1.28

13 - T Romo - 1.29

14 - J Skelton - 1.32

15 - P Rivers - 1.48

16 - J Freeman - 1.49

17 - K Orton - 1.52

18 - B Roethlisberger - 1.65

19 - R Grossman - 1.67

20 - M Cassell - 1.70

21 - M Sanchez - 1.72

22 - A Smith - 1.81

23 - T Jackson - 1.84

24 - C Ponder - 1.88

25 - C Painter - 1.92

26 - M Vick - 2.00

27 - J Flacco - 2.07

28 - C McCoy - 2.10

29 - J Cutler - 2.11

30 - S Bradford - 2.67

31 - K Kolb - 2.96

32 - B Gabbert - 3.04

33 - T The Golden Calf of Bristol - 3.54

34 - M Moore - 3.69

To give you an idea of the range:

Brees had 1 fumble against 657 pass/21 QB run attempts;

Cam had 5 fumbles against 517 pass/126 QB run attempts;

Matt Moore had 14 fumbles against 347 pass/32 QB run attempts.

This is not part of the stat, but FYI, Brees had 0 fumble recoveries, Cam had 3 and Matt Moore had 3 fumble recoveries. The stat sheet doesn't indicate whether the fumbles recovered were their own or another player's fumble.

All-in-all, a pretty impressive showing for our rookie QB.

Obviously not Montana, but to make this kind of comment after Moore's season is a bit rich. The guy has played really well this year, top 10 easily.

Matt Moore was top 10 among QBs that shouldn't be starters.

    • Just from the movie. I didn't guess that she was bringing all the black dudes in, but I knew right away the family was collecting blacks and the mom was using hypnosis to keep them there. I was like, yep ... evil white people. Neat.
    • Has a visit with Carolina. Ran under a 7 second 3 cone drill. Underrated blocker, go watch him matched up vs Texas A&M. Reminds me of Jordan Reed and is bigger and faster than him when he entered the league     
    • ive dug and dug on Cam Robinson. more and more i think hes had bad coaching at Alabama. most scouts say that he has different footwork from one play to the next. when his footwork is right, hes a badass. he haS bad habits, but is the most talented big man in the draft when it comes to upside. he needs a great OL coach.  worst case he can start at right tackle tomorrow. then we could move daryl to guard if tray and norwell both leave. he gives us a lot of options and can be a dominant left tackle if he can get consistent footwork.  he handled Garrett. he didnt handle carl lawson. lawson is a tactician, thats why he could take advantage of robinsons bad habits.
