his fanpost is for the most part a test to make sure everything turns out properly with a more in depth look out what we have to work with in our offense.
The 2008 season we had Tony Gonzalez as our go to guy on 3rd down, and I believe that in order to be successful we need someone that we can count upon to hold onto the ball, and make plays on 3rd down. This is what will keep drives alive that died off quickly.
Some Graphs to check out after the jump.
The above graph shows the percentage of total dropped passes by all of our receivers in 2009. Our TE's were not used very often and as a result have less dropped passes during 3rd down situations. On my analysis I have been very hard on the wide receivers... any interceptions that were thrown towards a receiver was counted as a dropped pass.(FYI: Chris Chambers had 4 interceptions thrown his way, but not all of them were on 3rd down This will be more important on the next fanpost that I setup).The Second graph(which didn't want to be inserted so you here shows all of the dropped passes that occured on 3rd down. Bobby Wade most of the season was the go to guy.
|Baltimore||Oakland||Philly||Giants||Dallas||Washington||San Diego||Jacksonville||Oakland||Pittsburg||San Diego||Denver||Buffallo||Cleveland||Cincy||Denver|
I was trying to post a 2nd graph but it wasn't allowing me to do such. Bobby Wade was our go to guy on 3rd down. This is why there were so many passes on 3rd down that were not completed by Wade. We switched players in and out to see if they could be our 3rd down receiving threat. The closest that I could see is Chris Chambers...
Anyways any suggestions are appreciated as this was a test to see how the tables and graphs would showup.
(OK I see the pie graph doesn't show up and the table was cutoff... I'll work on this post tomorrow with the suggestions offered)
