Breakdown of yards given up by skill position last year.

15 posts in this topic

The website is blocked at work, but fftoolbox.com has the breakdowns. Just google yards allowed to TE'S, RB'S OR WR'S and it will come up.

 

Last year we gave up: 814 yards and 8 TD'S to T.E'S(6TH most TD's allowed and 15th most yards in NFL, only 3 teams gave up more TD's to tight ends)

 

2209 Yards and 12 TD's to WR'S(22 teams gave up more TD's and 27 gave up more yards)

 

807 Receiving yards and 2 TD'S to running backs (2nd most receiving yards allowed in the league)

 

Also gave up 1606 rushing yards and 10 TD's on the ground to Running backs.

 

That puts as dead in the middle of rushing yards allowed and tied for 16th with Oakland.

 

Also means 17 teams gave up more rushing TD's. 2 other teams gave up 10 rushing TD's as well.

 

And just for the sake of being complete we gave up 147 rushing yards to QB'S.. This is good for the 6th least amount given up.

 

So obviously that's way too many TD's being given up to TE's and too many receiving yards being allowed to RB's. Anyone care to take a stab at the cause of this problem and how we can fix it?

beef up the interior Dline and strengthen the front 7.

 

what we've done this offseason and getting beason back will help make all of that better. the front seven is the key.

All in all, sounds pretty good. We could slow down the RBs though. If we can limit some of those huge Screen plays, that will help a poo ton.

 

But,,, with the depth on the D line, pressure will no long wane in the latter part of the game. Which will probably only exasperate the problem. Lots of dump offs and screens against a good pass rush.

I agree. As the D line slowed down later in the game, teams started taking advantage of it. It is much easier for a good Offense to beat a tired D. Short and Star should go a long way in alleviating that problem.

 

An added advantage will be cleaner LBs. Less bodies in the middle of the field because they are needed in pass protection.

The way we got gashed in the run game, set up a lot of passing plays for the opposing team. Just think back to the Tampa game last year. Remember how Doug Martin gashed s in the 2nd half and OT that opened things up for Clark? Also remember how close to the LOS Keek played and how he bit hard a lot on play action because our DT's sucked?

 

Yeah, fixing the interior of the D-Line is going to help us a long way not only in the run game but the passing attack.

Yeah uhm it might have something to do with all three of our divisional opponents loving to go to their TE's, gotta look closer at those Tampa games but they're painful to watch.

 

How did Sadlanta and the Aints do on the list of TE damage? Im betting Tampa wasnt far behind us either.

 

edit: hmm I dunno if it matters how they did now. . . Teams had so many other ways to score on them so its kind of moot.

Playing against jimmy graham and tony Gonzalez twice a year don't help with those TE touchdown stats.

Yep, I'd say a big part of the problem was that the LBs were looking in the backfield too much because they couldn't trust the interior DL against the run.

much of keek's stats came from having to clean up the DTs messes.

 

just think what he could do if he weren't having to focus his efforts on cleaning up after weak DTs.  just think of how good that D could be.

    • I would give anything to have 23 year old Jonathan Stewart on our Roster.. as years have gone by, I feel his potential has been wasted behind DeAngelo Williams, who in his own right was a beast for us in his prime..    As we wait eagerly and impatiently for our pick, let us remember and appreciate the beast that stewart was..( still is) ..   He was so explosive..  bouncy...  flexible.. powerful.. fast...      BEAST...  I became a fan in 2003 because I won a panther football in 1st grade at the end of that year for good behavior and learning my 1st grade stuff.. the following year..  I watched them in the Super Bowl in 2004... became a fan,, in my childhood, i grew and grew on them.. it solidified in 2008 when i watched double trouble GAPE the Bucs Live.. my first Panthers game.. what a night to solidify my fandom.. i received monday night tickets as a gift for getting all A's my 8th grade year...   since, ive seen a Panther great leave in DeAngelo.... but Stewart remained..   (some deangelo Highlights remain.. its OK, hes a panther great *turned sour*    but non the less)         i had SO MUCH PRIDE in our run game...  every madden i owned i made sure double trouble had their share...   and then there was Stewart.. the young, bouncy, fast guy... he turned tough...  he turned into a vet... a MoFo who will take YOU OUT.. carrying our ROCK along with CAM...     and Then, the best Expirience we have all experienced......    #2015     And i had so much pride, FINALLY.... Stewart was recognized......             A recoil year in 2016...            And I really believe there is a revival in 2017 of double trouble.......    #Fournette   except there isnt a dead roster... we have a Loaded roster, that will WIN...  winning with Cam Newton...  Stewart.. and ....         Let the Carolina GAPING run game live on folks...  I love the PAnthers like all of you... heres to 2017.
