By the numbers: Week 4 PLAYMAKERS

After considering a number of great suggestions for improvements to my playmaker tracker scoring system, I have version 2.0, looking at the Raider game. You'll see the breakdown and a few comments below.

First we'll look at the Raider game, and at the end you can see the running tally after four weeks of games.

*Scoring over 40 pts for a QB takes a clean game and boy was it ever for PM. Notice how our offense didn't resemble fox/mccoy ball very much? After Manning was signed in the offseason, I was nervous Fox/McCoy wouldn't fully utilize Manning's gifts, as neither of them had ever worked with anyone resembling Manning before. Even through the first 3 games, I felt like my fears were being realized. This Oakland game however, we saw Manning ball, instead of McCoy ball starting early in the game, and it really paid off. Manning got everyone involved and then it was a feeding frenzy the rest of the game. No punts folks. That is offensive domination. That is Manning ball, but not McCoy ball. We want more Manning ball next week and every week thereafter. Am I right?!

*I really like our 1-2 McGahee Hillman running back punch. McGahee turned in another awesome night, but Hillman is starting to show flashes. He gained playmaker points for both a long run and a long reception, and capitalized on his few opportunities. He'll be a home run threat in short order the way he's going.

*Solid WR play from the big three, but I'm wishing for a legit 4th threat. Notice Tamme and Thomas were the go-to guys on 3rd down. Both made 3 conversions, but Tamme also left a couple on the field. And wasn't Dreessen's catch something? Gotta love our TEs.

We had 12 plays of either 10+ yards rushing or 20+ yards receiving. That is awesome, and it really keeps the chains moving. Many of those receptions were mostly yards after the catch. We have receivers who are hard to get down, and I think YAC are going to be huge for us this year. Taking guys like DT down when he's trucking along can really be a dogfight. We can keep things going on short passes. Fun stuff!

*Our D-line wasn't quite as active outside of Dumervil in this game as they have been in terms of tackling. Ayers had a nice play and made the playmaker metric for the first time this season. Yay, an Ayers sighting.

*The playmakers on defense though were lead by Miller, Woodyard, and Harris. These three guys were money in the bank. Woodyard had 4 TFL in this game and 2 3rd Down stops. Harris had 3 3rd Down stops. That was the key, we absolutely were fantastic on 3rd down.

*Our big weakness, and it could be the difference against New England this week, is we do not get turnovers. Until we regularly get TOs, we won't be able to call ourselves an elite defense IMHO. For what it's worth.

*Raise your hand if you think we missed Mays...
