Quenton Nelson Color Rush Jersey
Every week Quenton Nelson Color Rush Jersey , I will present a summary of some basic and advanced stats for the Colts performance relative to the league. Thanks to Pro Football Reference, and the nflSCrapR project for being awesome sources of weekly data.The problem with talking about stats from a Colts blowout win is that you already know the story.There is no real insight to add. It’s a good problem to have. While an 86.7% Drive Success Rate isn’t the highest mark the Colts have put up this year, it is close, only slightly less than the 90.3% against Oakland 3 weeks ago.It is, however, the first game where the offense has not had a 3 & out drive, which is harder than it sounds. Of the 322 offensive games played in 2018 (161 games x 2 offenses), that has only happened 12 other times. Two turnovers and a great kick return gave Indianapolis advantageous field position on three drives and they capitalized on it with 17 points.And even though the six other drives pinned the Colts to the 14 yard line on average, the offense churned out another 21 points.TEAM TOTALSFor about the 4th week in a row, there just isn’t anything but good news stat-wise for the Colts offense.Drew Brees continued his likely MVP year and so Andrew Luck and the Colts could only muster the second best DSR and Adjusted Points Per Drive.Third down conversions dipped to 50%, but that is still very good, and the Colts continue to lead the league on the season (52%).But since 5.3 yards to gain on third down is lower than previous weeks then maybe the offense should have done better? Oh, darn. PASSINGFor the 5th game in a row, the offensive line did not yield a sack extending Luck’s streak to 214 sack-free attempts.If the O-line can keep that up for a mere 13 games more, Luck might break Dan Marino’s record of 759. The good marks keep going. The Colts put up the 2nd best Adjusted Net Yards per Attempt for the week (11.1), almost 47% of passes resulted in first downs (or TDs), and 9.2 Yards per Attempt is the 2nd best mark of the season for the Colts. As impressive as those passing numbers are, they were diluted a bit by Jacoby Brissett. Before taking a well earned 4th quarter respite, Luck put up 10.2 YPA and a 12.3 ANY/A, both of which were the 2nd best marks of his career. Yards after Catch weren’t great, but it has been trending up since week 3’s miserable low of 3.1 to an almost respectable 5.2. It would be really nice if that was higher but as long as YPA stays high (via air yards and completion rate), then I’m a happy guy. RUSHINGWhile not nearly as flashy as week 7 & 8’s 200+ yard performances, the run game was very good this week, earning the top spot in weighted rushing success rate.How is that possible with only 102 yards you say?Well, let me school ya. 3 of the 28 carries were kneel downs. 2 of them were touchdowns while another 6 were first down conversions. 8 more runs were on 1st or 2nd down and averaged 6.4 ypc making the conversions that much easier. Add it all up and you get 16 of 25 runs (64%) that successfully did what you wanted them to do.Even though teams like Baltimore and Seattle put up much more rushing yardage, the Colts run game was much more efficient in measures that lead to wins. On the year, the Colts are 5th in wRSR and it’s no coincidence that Luck’s passing has improved because of it.CONCLUSIONSThe three prior games had shown what this team can be offensively and they didn’t let up this past week either.Outside of New Orleans , the Colts have had the best offense in the league over a 4 game stretch (and yes, I saw the Monday night game). If they could finish the year at the current production level, then I don’t see the Colts losing another regular season game.And that would mean playoffs.SEASON TOTALS (per game) Nearly four decades removed from a stint in the short-lived USFL, Pro Football Hall of Famer Bill Polian will preside over the opening weekend of the newest spring league, the Alliance of American Football.“It’s one more challenge at the end of a long career,” said Polian, 76, who co-founded the AAF with Charlie Ebersol, a TV and film producer whose father, Dick, defined NBC Sports’ programming for more than two decades and created “Sunday Night Football.”Polian simply wasn’t ready for retirement after an NFL career in which he helped build Buffalo, Carolina and Indianapolis into Super Bowl teams, with the Colts winning the NFL championship after the 2006 season.This alternative league seems to stand a better chance of surviving than others, such as the USFL and the World League, because of the people and philosophies involved.“I’ve been pretty vocal about channeling the thoughts of so many of my friends in the NFL, in coaching and player personnel, that since the demise of NFL Europe, it’s needed a developmental league, where players can come in and learn and develop skills,” Polian said. “When Charlie approached me about this, we discussed it at great length and finally I said, ‘I’m going to put my effort where my mouth is and see where we can make this work.”Polian will catch half of the opening-weekend games in the eight-team league. He’ll be in San Antonio on Saturday night to watch the Commanders play the San Diego Fleet — broadcast by CBS in prime time — and in Tempe on Sunday night to see the Arizona Hotshots host the Salt Lake Stallions. The other opening-weekend games are the Atlanta Legends at the Orlando Apollos on Saturday night and the Memphis Express at the Birmingham Iron on Sunday night.Polian said the USFL took about 22 months to get up and running, and the expansion Carolina Panthers took about 19 months.“We’ve done this in nine months because of so many great former NFL people who are excited to do it, excited to be in it,” Polian said. “We started with nothing and we’re going to open it up on Saturday with eight teams playing what I think will be pretty good football.“That’s a credit to the people involved. We could not have done it if we had not had quality former NFL people.”The AAF is indeed stuffed with executives, general managers, coaches and players who’ve had various NFL experience.Hall of Fame linebacker and Super Bowl winner Mike Singletary is Memphis’ coach.Mike Martz Josh Ferguson Jersey , who was offensive coordinator of the St. Louis Rams’ “Greatest Show on Turf” Super Bowl-winning team in the 1999 season, returns to the sidelines as coach in San Diego, which two seasons ago lost the NFL’s Chargers to Los Angeles.Mike Vick is the offensive coordinator in Atlanta.Dennis Erickson is head coach in Salt Lake and will face off against Arizona’s Rick Neuheisel.The AAF even has the Head Ball Coach himself, Steve Spurrier, who is coaching the Apollos.Hall of Famer Willie Lanier is an executive in the league office, where former Pittsburgh Steelers stars Hines Ward (head of football operations) and Troy Polamalu (head of player relations) also work.Mike Pereira and Dean Blandino are officiating consultants. Pereira helped develop the unique rules that include no kickoffs, no extra-point tries, overtime rules that call for each team to get one possession and a ninth official, the SkyJudge, who from his perch in the press box can instantly correct “obvious and egregious” officiating errors, like the one that marred the NFC championship game.San Diego hired so well that it lost quarterback Josh Johnson to the Washington Redskins in December and offensive coordinator Jon Kitna to the Dallas Cowboys as their quarterbacks coach.Ebersol said the AAF players can leave for the NFL between April 29 and Dec. 29. He said the AAF released 71 players to the NFL and 35 came back and are playing. The AAF says that of its more than 600 players signed to date, 98 percent have been in the NFL at some point over the past 18 to 24 months.Polian and Ebersol said every NFL team had scouts in San Antonio when all the teams recently held training camp and then each played an exhibition game.“We’re not competitive, we’re complementary,” Ebersol said. “We look at the NFL as, we’re going to support your existence, let them play in your league, put content on your network. They’re a partner. The goal is to improve and support the ecosystem of football.”Games will be carried on CBS, NFL Network and Turner.Ebersol is backed by some heavyweight investors from Silicon Valley and also MGM, and has told them he has a five-to-seven-year business model.The Alliance has built a proprietary tech platform that will allow for a real-time, rewards-based system of integrated gaming and in-game wagering for fans in states where sports gambling is legalized.In a nice touch, Kurt Warner is the pregame and halftime analyst for Saturday night’s games on CBS. After being cut by Green Bay, Warner was working in an Iowa grocery store before playing in the Arena Football League and ultimately landing with the Rams, leading them to a Super Bowl victory and being voted NFL MVP in 1999.“Think about how many Kurt Warners are hiding among those kids who don’t get to the NFL,” Ebersol said. “Those are the guys we’re finding.”
