Someone on another forum I go to got it and was taking requests for player projections. Asked him about Cam, Double Trouble, Tolbert, Smitty, and Olsen.

Newton: 301/496, 64.3%, 3627 yds, 24 tds, 14 ints, 7.0 ny/p, 29.6% dvoa

rushing: 126 runs, 608 yds, 10 tds, 39.6% (for reference last year he was 14.5% dvoa)

Smith: 81/137, 59%, 1222 yds, 15.1 y/c, 7 tds, 11.9% dvoa

Stewart: 141 runs, 733 yds, 5.2 y/r, 4 tds, 16.2% dvoa

Tolbert: 66 runs, 305 yds, 4.6 y/r, 3 tds, 13.2% dvoa

Williams: 153 runs, 764 yds, 5.0 y/r, 5 tds, 15.4% dvoa

Olsen: 49/82, 524 yds, 60%, 10.7 y/c, 5 tds, -2.6% dvoa

That's 486 carries for 2,410 yards, and 22 TDs... a little worse than last season. Though that's still good for a top three run game, obviously.

Don't remember seeing this anywhere so I thought I'd share. Bitch away!

If the D is just average then those stats should see us walk into the post season.

Who the fug still cares about running the ball well as it has become so inconsequential in the w/l column

I care. It creates balance, grinds down opposing defenses, shortens the game by keeping the opposing O off the field and helps keep our D fresh.

Which made a damn good formula for winning in 1993

The league's evolved to the point where ball control is insignificant, because while you're going 80 yards in 16 plays, taking off 8 minutes so you can score a 21 yard field goal, there are QBs like Drew Brees and Tom Brady who can engineer touchdown drives in less than 1/4 of the time you took, and there is barely any defense built well enough to shut them down.

So when in your opinion does this become a 7 on 7 flag football league?
