Top 5 NFL Rushing Attempts by a QB

Through Week 3:

1. Griffin III, Washington (30 attempts)
2. Newton, Carolina (22 attempts)
t3. Vick, Philadelphia (14 attempts)
t3. Wilson, Seattle (14 attempts)
5. Luck, Indianapolis (10 attempts)

A couple takeaways from this list:

Young players run more anyways than veterans. If you have a young player who isn't mobile, that's a really difficult development curve to handle. Even though you win in the modern day NFL by throwing the football, if your QB can't move, he's never going to enjoy enough early career success to develop (looking at you, Mr. Weeden).

None of these five players have been particularly efficient this year throwing the football. Griffin and Luck have been the best so far, but the Redskins have a top offense because they've been the best rushing offense in the game thus far. The passing game has been good, but not great. Not really of any fault to Griffin, but he does take too many sacks and doesn't always throw the ball away when he needs to.

Kevin Kolb, Christian Ponder, and Matt Ryan are all at the top of the league in passing efficiency this year. But I guess you need a great arm to compete in the NFL these days. Greg Cosell says its true!

Overall, our offensive efficiency numbers though 3 games are pretty similar to how they were in 2008 through the 4-1 start. The difference between the ZornSkins and the KyleShanSkins are on the other sides of the ball: defense and special teams.

P.S. according to VOA, the worst defense in the league hasn't been the Redskins. It's been...the Cincinnati Bengals. Go figure.

RGIII needs just 30 or so yards for most rushing yards by a QB in a single season in Redskins history...I think

Re: Top 5 NFL Rushing Attempts by a QB

I strongly agree the first paragraph. where are you getting the passing effcieny stat from?

Interest random stat I found today...who leads the league in dropped passes? Jason Witten all by himself alone in first place with 5 drops.

Passing efficiency is nice and all but Kevin kolb is on that list and his offense is ranked 30th in the league..

Re: Top 5 NFL Rushing Attempts by a QB

Doesn't Griffin have a 103 qb rating, 67% completion rate, and 4 td's to 1 int?

I only ask, cuz that seems pretty efficient to me?

Well, Skelton was horrible against Seattle and Ryan Williams has like five fumbles or something this year.

Yeah, that's pretty good and his YPA is high.

It's all about the sacks and fumbles though. And yes, his blocking is awful. But if he throws the ball away on the Dunlap sack at the end of the game, we're talking about a totally different finish.

The Redskins O has overall been very good, but one complaint I have is that they're in third and forever way too much for a team that's number one across the board in rushing.

It only took him 3 games to beat the franchise single-game rushing record by a QB...he had 85 yards in Week 3.

This is the best sign outside of adusted accuracy percentages. YPA has been great, need to get Pierre back on the field see where that goes.

Seems like a combo of penalties and sacks account for a lot of that.

Re: Top 5 NFL Rushing Attempts by a QB

I think over the course of the year we will see Griffin's run numbers subside, especially the called runs. Not only from the injury standpoint but from the evolution of the offense to being a little more traditional. Right now, we barely run the stretch run and the stretch boot off of that play. We aren't running much of what we usually run but that will come. As fans we tend to forget that RG3 has played 3 professional games so his knowledge and comfort in the traditional passing game is still in its infancy. We are running him out of necessity as much as opportunity now because he's still learning in other areas.

One reason I don't get too caught up in the numbers is if you look at the sack numbers 4 of them were basically self inflicted. 3 times he and Morris have got their feet tangled and I thought I recall RG running out of bounds once rather than throwing it away. Take those away and the sack numbers look much more like the league average.
