One more look back at notable numbers from the Denver game before we put it behind us. An extended look at Joe Flacco's accuracy percentage.

One more look back at notable numbers from the Denver game before we put it behind us. An extended look at Joe Flacco's accuracy percentage.

 

Granted this number was in line with some of the numbers we've seen over the last few years but what are the circumstances around these #s?

 

One question about the metric, I'd assume that it only looks at where the ball is in relation to pass catcher. In other words, there's no way of knowing that a WR may have ran the wrong route and the QB throws the ball to where the WR "should" but they aren't there. The result is a negative hit on the accuracy percentage.

 

Notice the big drop beginning in 2011; coinciding with Torrey's rookie year (meaning more deep balls, which are inherently less accurate) and also the release of Mason and Heap; which meant that 2 experienced route runners that were very capable and familiar with the offense are remove from the equation. Furthermore, there were less "safe" throws without Mason and Heap. (think of all out the curls, outs and digs that Flacco threw to Mason)

 

Looking at last Thursday, I look at losing Oher, which means protection gets worse and can affect accuracy; having the big defecit and having to be one dimensional, which means the defense knows we're throwing and can affect accuracy; having new pieces to the offense and needing to develop that chemistry and just knowing how quickly and effectively guys like Stokley and Clark will get to a spot is also a factor.

 

I think it bears watching and of course you want to see it improve. The hope is that as these new pieces come together and everyone gets more comfortable with the full implementation of Caldwell's offense, things will improve.
