First off let’s congratulate Matt Canada and his offense – scoring 76 points in a single ball game is damn impressive. So – good for you.
This is a bit late in posting but in all honestly I wasn’t all that happy with the way things turned out yesterday and, even with a regular season-ending win, I feel disappointed.
Some fans just care about the Ws and Ls and I can understand that in part. Those tick marks will be the historical record that goes in the books for later when we talk about past seasons.
I am personally more interested in how the games themselves play out as well as the different ebbs and tides that the season goes through until it ends, hopefully on a winning note.
With that view have to say that as happy as I am we finished with eight wins I though yesterday’s game was about as strange as could be.
Here are some stats to look at:
|NET YARDS RUSHING||228||393|
|Average Per Rush||5.1||9.8|
|Yards Gained Rushing||250||406|
|Yards Lost Rushing||22||13|
|NET YARDS PASSING||440||251|
|Average Per Attempt||7.2||13.2|
|Average Per Completion||10.2||27.9|
|TOTAL OFFENSE YARDS||668||644|
|Total offense plays||106||59|
|Average Gain Per Play||6.3||10.9|
Along with the both team’s offensive players’ work on the day (the defense isn’t worth writing about:
Here is the passing game log for Nate Peterman for this 2016 season. Take a look at his last three games (all wins):
That is 44/73 (58%) for 796 yards, 12 TDs and 2 INT. That is a QB rating of 175.9 over those three games. Again those three wins jumped us up from 5-4 to 8-4. Way to go Nate!
We’ll have a MMQB article up tomorrow then go into off-season type articles through the week.
HTP!! 8-4 !! That’s a good thing….!
