End of Season Individual Statistics Thread

I compiled all of those stats I've been keeping all year into two neat (sort of) posts, plus some analysis for what it all means. Mostly, I leave it pretty open ended to draw your own conclusions.

This is the offensive statistics and awards post:

FINAL Redskins Offensive Individual Statistics and Awards - Hog Heaven

And here is the defensive statistics and awards post:

FINAL Redskins Defensive Individual Statistics and Awards - Hog Heaven

Enjoy, guys.

Re: End of Season Individual Statistics Thread

Wow. I especially appreciate the "notes" provided after the stats GT. A few questions if I may:

1) You said Betts should be used for in the 1st half so that CP is fresh for critical downs in the 2nd half. Question is where is Betts strong and where is he weak as a RB? I ask because it seems he's very good at catching passes out of the backfield and making stuff happen (almost like he runs harder doing this). He seems very good at running up the gut w/ decent blocking (if hit in the backfield before he gets up to speed forget about it). But Ladell seems very weak running to the outside i.e. trying to get outside the tackles. Any insight?

2) You also said it would be nice to get a different styled runner than CP. Does that mean more toward a scat back or a bruiser like B. Jacobs?

3) Defensively, do you suppose Rocky Mac had a down year because he's still recovering or is he destined for an avg/short-lived career? With that could Blades play weak-side (or strong side for that matter if Marcus is gone)? Finally, i'm guessing you think we need to draft/sign LB talent no matter what right?

4) Can you tell why Evans regressed in the 2nd half of the year?

Betts and Portis pretty much have the same strengths and weaknesses, except, as you mentioned, they like Betts more as a receiver. Which is why as they moved away from max protection schemes to more wide open schemes, Betts got the third down calls.

I would say you pretty much have it right on, Betts is a lot like Portis except that he turns the corner incredibly slow.

2) Either or. Just someone who would have their own section of the playbook separate from Portis' plays.

3) Can't say for sure, but I'm leaning towards the latter. Blades could absolutely handle WLB. Even with Blades and Fletcher, this is a spot that will need to be addressed in the offseason, especially since neither Blades nor Fletcher is a particularly great fit for what Blache wants to do.

4) Evans was never strong against the run, and I'm convinced his success as a pass rusher in the first half had more to do with favorable matchups (Cory Proctor, whoever the Steelers RT is) then actual talent. He's probably not as bad as his 2nd half numbers suggest, but even more likely not as good as his first half numbers.

The fact that he's a free agent means we might never get to find out.

Great statistics. The biggest surprise is how weakly our three WR/TE draft picks did this season. I suggest that if they don't improve a lot next season that they won't be retained. We need someone to help S. Moss out there.
