I just ran across this article on Advanced NFL stats and wanted to share. There is a lot if information on the article and some might not be interesting but look at the section that discusses deep pass attempts:
"So if YPR is increasing, and completion percentage is about the same as it's been, QBs must be throwing deeper, right? Data in this category only goes back through 2006, but we still see a discernable trend. Contrary to what we'd expect, the trend is downward. Teams are attempting fewer deep passes, and so far 2011 has the lowest deep attempt rate of recent seasons, slightly shy of 19%."
That is counter to our comments about wanting ATL to throw a lot more deep passes. This season Matt's percent deep is 19.5%. Here is the link to the article:
Based on the conclusion of the article we can see one area where there is a lack of "explosiveness" in our passing attack.
