Total Accuracy has been updated through Week 8's action, and there's a new leader, a guy the Field Gulls faithful knows very well...let's call him a "rival" or "arch nemesis"
Yep, you guessed it, Colin Kaepernick.
For those just tuning in, Total Accuracy weighs a quarterback's Accuracy Percentage ranking against his Average Depth of Target Ranking in hopes of providing a better representation of each signal-caller's accuracy on aimed passes.
Here's the updated chart:
|Rank||Name||AP Rank||aDOT Rank||2x AP Rank||Total Accuracy|
|T8||Alex D. Smith||1||35||2||37|
Russell Wilson analysis:
The Seahawks gutted out a win on the road against an up-and-down Carolina Panthers team, and Mr. Wilson registered a good but not great AP of 73.3. His aDOT was relatively low, as usual, at just 6.7 yards. A good sign for RW3 and Seattle's offense -- the third-year quarterback was pressured on just 25.7 percent of his drop backs, per Pro Football Focus.
Other Notable Performances:
- Tom Brady was downright evil to the Bears defense. His AP was 94.3 during the beatdown inside Gillette Stadium.
- Somehow, Alex Smith's team won an NFL game in which his aDOT was -- ready? -- just 2.2 yards. That's really, JV football level low.
- Kyle Orton only threw the football 17 times against the super porous Jets secondary, and led the NFL with an aDOT of 14.5. His AP was the same as Wilson's, 73.3.
