Sam Darnold was responsible for 11.0% of total pressures

I had to think about this one.

It indicates how many of the pressures were Sam's fault i.e. not getting the ball out quickly enough. So most of the pressures were his offensive line’s fault, I guess.

11th is still borderline middle of the pack though. I don't see much significance in this.

Yeah, I don't know how significant it is.  

They did have a ton of pressures, so knowing that Sam wasn't the cause of ~90% of them is a good thing.

It’s kind of pointless because he also made bad decisions… So he got rid of the ball quickly but it’s wasn’t always the right pass to make?

Lets say, that 90% of the pressures were his fault because he held on too long... bringing him here won't help as much.

I wouldn't say pointless, but it just supports what we already suspected, that his pressures were due to bad o-line play.

You're right, this is not anything to get excited about.

I will say he does seem to avoid pressure pretty well and extend plays with his legs. Lords knows he got plenty of chances to do so in NY.

I had not heard that holding the ball too long was a knock on him it was correctly deciding where to go with it. Once you get to that it becomes a question of how often did he go through his reads. That would offer us a better sense of the relevance of data like this.

Its not something you hear about anybody.  Who tops the list for causing the most pressure?

idk

I'm curious where Teddy would be in that list too. He probably got the ball out quicker than most.

I'm spouting this from memory, and in a vacuum the numbers probably don't mean much.

The league average time to release was right at 2.75 seconds.  Darnold's was 2.85 seconds.  Teddy was right about 2.6, I think, and if I remember right he was fourth or so.  I remember his time was in line with but a little faster than Brees.

I say the numbers don't mean much in a vacuum because a QB with a strong, clean pocket for 2.75 seconds is a lot different than a guy running for his life to get it off in 2.85 seconds.

For comparison, Mayfield's was the longest at around 3.2.  If my memory is correct, Mahomes was a shade under 3. 

Haskins was the fastest, I think.  Of course, you don't need much time to make a lousy decision.

Well he is likely to be behind one if the worst OL's he has ever had, so I don't know how exciting that stat is.

Would you consider our OL worse than last year?  Who did we lose and who did we add?

    • And you've had this one where you obviously have reading comprehension issues. In other words, do your research next time or shut the f-ck up.   Fair?   Good.
    • I feel you bro. I spent most of my adolescent life in Camp Lejeune NC.  The son of a US Marine.  My father being from Baltimore and baseball and football were the major sports i grew up with.  NBA and ABA was not as popular as it is now.  Baltimore back then had Unitas and the Robinson's in baseball.  So life was good. 1984 all that changed as far as football went.  I never followed the Colts to Indy so I was basically a fan without a team.  I followed the Giants mostly because LT went to school with my brother (he was a walk on Safety for UNC and had a couple of cool stories about LT in practice) and my 1st wife was from Long Island, NY. I loved NC and always called it home so when Carolina got the Panthers and later the Hornets these became my favorite teams and win/lose or draw I have always been a fan.  I know in the early days of the Panthers the Redskins, Steelers, Cowboys and even the Falcons had major roots in our fan base.  Over the years many have jumped ship to the Panthers and our Carolina fan base is a little more loyal and we have less loyalty to those listed above. I was watching NFL Live yesterday and they were talking about the Panthers Defense. Marcus Spears pointed out what I think makes our defense so dynamic.  He said how crazy athletic we were.  IMO that is the key to our defense.  So many fast, athletic and smart players on the field.   Another take was when they were talking about Rhule during his press conference.  They mentioned how deeply he knew about every aspect of a play or decision.  He is completely in-charge and knows every in and out of this team.
