Total Accuracy has been updated through Week 6's action of the 2014 NFL season.
You astute Field Gulls readers likely know what Total Accuracy is, and how it's formed, so I'll cut to the chase.
Quarterbacks who've taken at least 25% of their respective team's snaps are counted, and aDOT ties are broken by better AP rank.
Accuracy Percentage is counted twice so it "weighs" more than aDOT because a signal-caller's accuracy is more important than simply how far he throws the ball down the field.
Any questions? I'll be tracking the comment section. Also, you can find me on Twitter @ChrisTrapasso.
|Rank||Name||AP Rank||aDOT Rank||AP 2x||Total Accuracy|
|T6||Alex D. Smith||1||36||2||38|
First Appearances: CHAAALAY Whitehurst, Kyle Orton
Biggest riser: : Andy Dalton 9 spots (18th in Week 6, T9th after Week 6)
Biggest faller: Ben Roethlisberger: 16 spots (6th in Week 4, 22nd after Week 6)
Russell Wilson analysis: Welp, this is awkward. Truthfully, a "bad" game was bound to happen for Russell Wilson at some point because; 1. contrary to popular belief in the Pacific Northwest, he's human and 2. he's been a sack-avoiding wizard for most of the last (two) years - he can't avoid sacks forever.
His AP of 57.7 against the Cowboys was a season low by far, and, wait a minute, can we please talk about Dallas' pass-rush? How is it this good? Overall, though, RW3 is still solidly in 12th, and if Russell Okung decides he wants to start blocking again, the Seahawks' franchise QB will be fine.
Notable Week 6 performances:
- Seattle's old buddy CHAAALAY had a day against...the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 6. Seriously. The guy was a stud. One of Nashville's most beautiful people AND an AP of 81.8? WHAT CAN'T HE DO?!?!
- After hovering near the top of the Total Accuracy rankings through five weeks, Rams' QB Austin Davis was not so accurate against the 49ers on Monday Night Football. That's being nice. His AP was just 53.8, the lowest figure in the NFL in Week 6.
- In his four-touchdown effort against the Chargers, Derek Carr's AP was a 75.9, and his aDOT was a respectable 8.1. #SparanoEffect
- Not really a notable performance from Week 6, but I have a feeling Drew Stanton is going to stay last in AP and first in aDOT for a while now that Carson Palmer is back in the Cardinals lineup. #AriansEffect
