Christian McCaffrey's 2018 season was the 3rd closest season ever to reaching 1,000 rushing and 1,000 receiving yards

    4th closest. Charlie Garner had 962 rushing and 941 receiving yards in 2002 for Oakland, being 97 yards from scrimmage off (which I'm going to call the 2nd closest after Faulk's 1998 season).

  • Namakcaj
    12 points Feb 26,2019, 9:16am

    This almost certainly looked like it was going to be David Johnson, then he was out for a year and then stuck in a dysfunctional offence with no O-Line and coaches who didn't know how to the utilize him properly. Hope he can get back to that level, as he seems a bit of an after thought now when it comes to top RB discussion.

    McCaffrey played an insane amount of snaps last season, he was very effective but I don't know if that's sustainable, though if Cam is out for a portion of the season at least or his shoulder needs to be carefully managed, then he'll likely get a similar workload to compensate.

    I would say my money's on Saquon to do it before anybody else, but the Giants might actually end up with a QB who throws downfield occasionally which will hurt his chances.

    Can we get a shoutout for Roger Craig he did the 1k-1k in 34 less touches and scored 3 more TDs than Faulk.

    EDIT: he also lead the league in receptions with 92 that year.

    Also worth not noting but not good enough to qualify for this list is LaDainian Tomlinson's 2003 season. 1,645 rushing yards + 100 receptions for 725 yards.

  • fourpuns

    I'd take prime Marshal Faulk over Prime Christian McCaffrey ergo the kids a scrub.

    I remember when he was thought to go mid-late first round early in the draft days I was stoked we might get him. Then he killed the combine and he jumped down to like ~10th and I knew there was no chance.

    I thought we were going to get a more polished Danny Woodhead. Figured he would be going off for like 500+/500+ every year.

    Charles Garner needed 104 total yards (56 reviving and 48 rushing) in 2002, McCaffrey needed 133 yards. So I’d say he was 4th.

[OC] Successful play percentage in 2018

    Offenses are often praised for staying "on schedule"-- getting enough yards on early downs to make conversions easier, even if a first down isn't made. I wanted to see which teams were the best at staying ahead of the chains in 2018, so I came up with a simple metric for what constitutes a successful play.

    In most cases, in order to get a first down without punting, a team needs to gain 10yds over 3 downs. So if a team gained 3.34 yards on 1st, 2nd, and 3rd down, they would get a first down and continue the drive. A successful play on 1st and 10 is therefore any play gaining more than 3.34 yards. But on second and 8, a team needs to average 4 yds/play to get a first down, so a successful play in that situation is 4 yds or more, and so on. On 3rd or 4th down, a successful play is any one that achieves a first down (for simplicity, I'm ignoring cases like a team trailing by touchdown in the 4th quarter with a 3rd and 20 gaining 15 yards being considered "successful").

    Chart shows all offensive plays from the 2018 regular season.

    TLDR: successful if ( ydsGained >= (ydsToGo / max(4 - Down, 1))

    This is awesome! Great analysis man.

    One addition that would be super cool is if you made them stacked bars, showing pass vs run. Another cut that would be interesting is stacks by play distance - eg plays that went from the minimum to qualify up to 4, 4-9, 10+. I think both of these would be fascinating looks at how things are getting done or where teams really need to improve. These are already dope though. Thanks for making OC!

    Offenses are often praised for staying "on schedule"-- getting enough yards on early downs to make conversions easier, even if a first down isn't made. I wanted to see which teams were the best at staying ahead of the chains in 2018, so I came up with a simple metric for what constitutes a successful play.

    In most cases, in order to get a first down without punting, a team needs to gain 10yds over 3 downs. So if a team gained 3.34 yards on 1st, 2nd, and 3rd down, they would get a first down and continue the drive. A successful play on 1st and 10 is therefore any play gaining more than 3.34 yards. But on second and 8, a team needs to average 4 yds/play to get a first down, so a successful play in that situation is 4 yds or more, and so on. On 3rd or 4th down, a successful play is any one that achieves a first down (for simplicity, I'm ignoring cases like a team trailing by touchdown in the 4th quarter with a 3rd and 20 gaining 15 yards being considered "successful").

    Chart shows all offensive plays from the 2018 regular season.

    TLDR: successful if ( ydsGained >= (ydsToGo / max(4 - Down, 1))

    Really cool graphic!

    Honestly looks like the Patriots have an easy schedule next year compared to other first place teams. This is not meant to be an attack on the Pats, I am just making an observation.

    I expect them to go 5-1 in division, 3-1 against the AFC North, 1-1 against the Chiefs and Texans, and 4-0 against the NFC East. Possibly 13-3. Maybe 14-2. Probably 12-4. Either way, that's a top 2 seed.

    Death, taxes, and the Patriots in the Tom Brady invitational.

    Fun schedule for us. Some very tough games and not many that seem like outright walks. I love when we play the North, but buh gawd I don't want to lose to Aaron Rodgers.

    Just thinking about this stuff gets me so pumped for the draft. I can't wait to see if we can address some areas of need. It'll be tough with a late pick and no first.

    Great chart. The scheduling has been so fucking awesome since 2002.

    One thing that I think about in the shower sometimes, geographic realignment. I know there are shitposts galore, but you could swap 5 teams and have almost perfect divisions.

    In the AFC, Dolphins to the south, Colts to the north, and Ravens to the east.

    In the NFC swap the Cowboys and the Panthers.

    Bam done. Chiefs are kinda lonely there but need to stay in the west.

    I'm going to use this opportunity to throw out my idea that the inter-conference matchups should be against first place teams, second place teams etc.

    Sure, there's some downsides I can think of. No Brady vs. Eli or Superbowl LII rematch. However, imagine all the great 1s vs. 1s we would have.

    AFC: Patriots and Chiefs vs. Rams, Cowboys, Sains and Bears.

    Really cool graphic!

    Honestly looks like the Patriots have an easy schedule next year compared to other first place teams. This is not meant to be an attack on the Pats, I am just making an observation.

    I expect them to go 5-1 in division, 3-1 against the AFC North, 1-1 against the Chiefs and Texans, and 4-0 against the NFC East. Possibly 13-3. Maybe 14-2. Probably 12-4. Either way, that's a top 2 seed.

    Death, taxes, and the Patriots in the Tom Brady invitational.

    Just thinking about this stuff gets me so pumped for the draft. I can't wait to see if we can address some areas of need. It'll be tough with a late pick and no first.

    Great chart. The scheduling has been so fucking awesome since 2002.

    One thing that I think about in the shower sometimes, geographic realignment. I know there are shitposts galore, but you could swap 5 teams and have almost perfect divisions.

    In the AFC, Dolphins to the south, Colts to the north, and Ravens to the east.

    In the NFC swap the Cowboys and the Panthers.

    Bam done. Chiefs are kinda lonely there but need to stay in the west.

    Sure, there's some downsides I can think of. No Brady vs. Eli or Superbowl LII rematch. However, imagine all the great 1s vs. 1s we would have.

    AFC: Patriots and Chiefs vs. Rams, Cowboys, Sains and Bears.

    He says the report is false. He also said this time would be "different" with the Patriots. I am not trying to talk down about his struggles off field with mental health or addiction, but what Josh Gordon says doesn't hold much weight either. It's really nobodys business except his, but he keeps trying to comeback supposedly, which keeps his story in the news cycle. If he's done, he needs to say so for his own sake and officially retire.

    I'm sure the Patriots are being plenty supportive though, and would gladly take him back if he can return, major props to their organization. And Gordon for being so chill about the rumors, he could have been much more upset, and for good reason.

  • bwredsox34

    Is he saying that the Patriots' paying for his rehab is false? Or that a return to the team in the future being possible is false? Or both? Just seems strange that this story would come out and now Gordon feels the need to deny it (not that he's lying about it)

  • RedSoxEatPoop
    305 points Jan 29,2019, 3:51pm

    Now I'm not sure if JG is calling the report about the Patriots paying for treatment false or just the return being false...or both. But let's wait until the facts are straight to see what is happening.

    People got kinda upset at me suggesting the NFL may not want to or be able to pay out of pocket expenses for players.

    I mean it makes sense, your employer doesn’t generally cover anything your insurance doesn’t. The insurance they have is awesome and they make millions of dollars, it’d seem strange to me for the organizations to pay for certain players out of pocket.
