Teddy 5th best in pressure %

Recommended Posts

https://www.pro-football-reference.com/years/2020/passing_advanced.htm
 

Teddy is currently at a 15.4% pressure rate this season, which puts him in at 5th best. This puts him in the same cohort of some really good QBs in Brady, Rivers, Rodgers, and Brees who all boast a 13.9% pressure rate or better. 
 

Teddy’s release/wind up isn’t necessarily the fastest or tightest. Our line isn’t necessarily the best grades pass blockers in recent memory. We are in the bottom third of the league using play action. We’re not lighting up the league in rushing. So what’s the cause of this low pressure rating?

Joe Brady. Brady has the Panthers use more west coast passing concepts than I have seen since Cam was drafted. For those unfamiliar, the WCO is about ball control through “extended handoffs,” a euphemism for shorter passes.  This allows you to get the ball out quickly and put the ball in the hands of your best playmakers. The passes are predicated on easy and quick to read progressions that have blitz alerts built in them.

 

What this results in are high passing yards, high completion %, an efficient passing attack and best of all, low pressure rating. So next time you want to complain that Teddy doesn’t throw the ball deep (he does) or we throw the ball too much (we don’t) just remember all the years we’ve run run punt or given up a huge sack on 2nd and short. Remember the times you’ve heard “it is what it is” and “missed opportunities” and know that our young offensive coordinator is just firing up and is only going to improve as the year continues.

I was looking at this stat earlier.  When you see it you think the line must be giving him time to throw, but we have one of the worst pocket times in the NFL at 2.3.  So it must be Teddy getting rid of the ball quickly.

which explains his dinking and dunking that he gets so much crap about. Teddy can't throw long....because he doesn't have time to.

Generally speaking, unless you have a beastly OL, the QB is going to want to get the ball out of his hands as fast a possible.

The longer a QB holds on to a ball, the higher the chance for a sack and other bad things to occur.

Teddy has always been great under pressure. People continue to rag on him for his numbers in Minnesota while completely ignoring the situation and play calling that year. 

46.7% of dropbacks is an absurd number

Teddy has been a solid middle tier QB this season, which is good enough to win some games. The only people in the entire NFL fan base that rag on Teddy are the scorned lovers.

Teddy is the kind of QB that could win you a Super bowl with an opportunistic defense. Look at how the team won their first game - defense was forcing turnovers. The offense didn’t capitalize on the opportunities with TDs, but that’s the formula for winning games with Teddy at QB
