Until I can get home and do up a podcast for today let’s chip in with our Pittsburgh Panthers Football MVP for 2016.  You can list one overall; one on offense and one on defense or anything your little heart desires.

Looking at the season objectively I feel the MVP has to come from the offensive side of the ball for obvious reasons.  One being we had no defense to speak of.  I think QBs are always the most important guy out there because it all starts with the snap and the ball being put into play.

Peterman had a great year as we talked about yesterday.  He didn’t light the world on fire from game one until game 13 but he got steadily better as the season unfolded and, perhaps most importantly, didn’t have many turnovers that kept us from scoring points. Seven INTs on the year is darn good especially stacked up against 237 TD passes.

But that’s the easy pick.  I supposed you could point to James Conner as the romantic choice given it was his comeback year but truth be told his production doesn’t jump off the page at you.

So I’ll go with a kid who was maddeningly inconsistent at times but made big plays when needed – WR Jester Weah.  Here is what he did this year:

CAREER STATS

RECEIVING

SEASON REC YDS AVG LNG TD
2016 36 870 24.2 75 10
2015 0 2 0.0 2 0

You can see that when he touched the ball he did something with it.  That 24.2 average per catch is outstanding and he seemed to hook up on the deeper passes just when our offense needed a boost.

Ten TDs isn’t bad either (Boyd as comparison had six last year) and in the last two games of the regular season – versus Duke and SYR he had only six catches but they went for 194 yards and three TDs… that is an average of 32.3 yards per catch.  

In addition he gave us something that we had been sorely missing over the past few years and that is a legitimate and consistent deep threat.  I know Tyler Boyd put up some big yardage in his time here but he was much more of a possession receiver.

Boyd had 3,361 (!) yards while at Pitt but that came with 254 receptions and averaged out at 13.2 yards per which is about the median average for a good D1 WR.  24.2 is pretty much untouchable especially when it came on a goodly amount of receptions at 36.

Weah was a legit deep threat all year.  He had six plays of over 55 yards – 60, 55, 75, 56, 59 and 69 were his individual game bests and I might have missed one or two there.  That really opened up the short and intermediate passing routes and helped Peterman have that good passing year he had.  Peterman averaged almost 200 yards per game and these deep plays really helped with that.

Second on my list would have to be our Offensive Line collectively – Left Tackle specifically.  Our QB was only sacked 10 times all year and when that guy can remain upright good things can happen.

How about your choices and why?

  1. I have a different take, Matt Canada was the MVP he was innovative and pulled the strings by putting multiple individuals into positions were they could succeed.

  2. Similar to the Dallas Cowboys this year, how about the entire offensive line?

    But if I had to pick one, it would probably be Henderson.

  3. Looking forward into 2017 from the perspective of the MVP for 2016, I’d have to go with gc’s & DKF’s pick too, Henderson. Why,,,, leadership! That is what this team now lacks with the graduation of so many Seniors and Conner going pro. The void of leadership must be filled. From what I’ve seen of Quadree Henderson, he understands the responsibility that is being thrust upon him now with his dynamic performance and All American status garnered in 2016.

    MVP going forward if he is prepared to pick up the Pitt standard and carry it high into what possibly could be a breakout year for Narduzzi’s team if his underrated recruiting classes are ready to reload all of the positions up for grabs come Spring Ball.

  4. My vote would be for QH, despite all the fumbles. Correct the fumble problem for next year and QH passes TD on the single season All-purpose yardage leader list. Being # 2 on that list in 2016 is not bad…

    As far as team leaders for 2017 – Mad Max was one of four USC team captains and I believe he will elevate to that status at Pitt in 2017. One of the three elder OLineman needs to lead (Bookser, Officer or O’Neill). On the D side – Wirginis and Whitehead.

    But Peterman, Conner and Henderson definitely had individual game MVPs.

  17. Have to go with one of our All-Americans. And that’s gotta be Little Q…. who had the huge punt return against the Pedo’s of 84 yards to the Pedo State 10 yd line, which lead to the TD (42 pts) that beat them. We most likely lose that game without that play. Q also rushed the ball for 58 yards on only 4 carries (a 14.5 avg) and led Pitt WR’s in yards…. avg’g 15.7 ypc.

    Q was phenomenal the next week in Stillwater, rushing for 95 yards on only 7 carries (13.6 avg) and 2 TD’s including a 50 yard run in the late 3rd Q to tie the game 38-38.

    The next week at Chapel Hill, Little Q led the team in rushing with 107 yards on only 9 carries (12 yd avg)
    At Virginia Q, had a 93 yard Kick Return TD when Pitt trailed 7-14.
    At Miami he had a 100 yard Kickoff Return TD to tie the game 7-7. Also avg’d 7.6 yards per rush.

    A lot of these teams like Clemson kicked the ball out of the endzone the whole game to avoid having to defend Henderson, which resulted in Pitt getting the ball at the 25 yd line.

    Henderson scored 2 ways against Duke. A 65 yard Punt Return TD and a 52 yard rushing TD.
    Finished the regular season with a 66 yard rushing TD against Syracuse and 103 total rushing yards. Got to be a first for Pitt, a WR with two 100 yard rushing games,

    Little Q….#1 in the Nation in Combined Kick Returns with near 2100 yards.

    #11 in the Nation in All Purpose Yards.

  24. Robert Morris University: head football coach John Banaszak announced the hiring of Mike Miller as offensive coordinator this past week.

    Miller, a Pittsburgh native who owns 13 years of experience on National Football League offensive staffs, returned to the place where his coaching career began as a graduate assistant on Joe Walton’s 1997 staff.

    Miller most recently coached in the NFL with the Arizona Cardinals where he served as a wide receivers coach (2007-08) and then passing game coordinator (2009-10) before being promoted to offensive coordinator (2011-12). Miller’s unit of receivers was key in the Cardinals reaching Super Bowl XLIII, the organization’s first appearance in the Super Bowl. In that 2008 season, Miller helped three different receivers surpass 1,000 receiving yards, marking only the fifth time in NFL history that a team achieved that feat. One of those receivers was former Pitt star and NFL All-Pro Larry Fitzgerald.

    Narduzzi immediately goes and gets a transfer late in the game to replace his incompetent incumbents he inherited.

    Narduzzi along with ace recruiter Tim Salem goes and fights for Max Browne so hard he doesn’t even take any other visits whatsoever.

    Prototype Size, 6’2” + Kenny Pickett says that Pat Narduzzi fought for him so that gives me great confidence that Pickett is a Big-Time talent who may have just may have slipped under-the-radar from Urban Meyer and Nick Saban.

During this last year I started piecing together comments on here and about 2 or 3 weeks ago, figured out that RKB was my “older” neighbor. He coached me in baseball when he and my other neighbor got me on a team even though I was two years younger than the age cutoff. He was a great coach and he was solid on the hoop court too. RKB is truly an awesome dude and never turned me away from playing any sport against him and his brothers, despite a big difference in age. That is where I learned how to compete and ended up doing okay athletically as it opened a lot of doors for me. RKB is a solid citizen and I am glad we re-connected on this medium. He still lives in the same USC neighborhood. Hopefully we will reconnect this coming year. This site did it!! Thanks Reed!
