Consistency of the Yards: Cap & Reload

Hello and Welcome to Consistency of the yards

(note: from now on I might abbreviate these post editions as COY or C.O.Y. or I might use it for stats, example his 3 yard COY for the game was 85% !!)


In this post You will find a breakdown for just aboot every Ball carrier we've had, except for WRs(TEs) of course.  We will start off with the two backs that don't have enough carries for real consideration and then move on from there.

 

NEW from last time

I have developed a formula/algorithm that takes a lot of my info into account and in the end produces a single number which can be compared against others.  This post will be in ascending order using this RB # I'm still working on improvements, such as taking short yardage situations, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th down, how far is left to first down, score, goaline, recent tendencies into account but for the time being we will have to take for granted they average out.

 

Without further ado......(starting with INCOMPLETES in ascending order)

Of course I'm only counting cutler on scrambling attempts and Designed ruing plays, but thats still a pretty darn good number!!

 

Well not much to conclude with, the numbers speak for themselves.  Couple surprises in there.  Who expected Hall to come out in second?  I think Torain is better than where he's at right now and Pope is much lower(too few carries).  If anyone should have had a chance to be higher it would be Young, who was used alot as a change of pace with easy yards ahead, I think he had to work the least for his yards but still came up short on the list.  Hillis looks pretty bloody good with a 89.5#  and Cutler proved he is god by breaking the 100# barrier :)
