The Great American Stat Awards: Most Valuable Offensive Player

New, comments

Misery loves company. I am still reeling from last weekend's loss and gosh darnit, I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to blame someone. But the time for that will come. In the interim, let's acknowledge our statistical MVOP.

Join me after the jump for some pure, unadulterated, stat-based homerism.

And the nominees are [insert drum roll noise]:

(1) White

DVOA was 8.3 percent (8.3 percent more successful than league-average), which ranked 28/85 WRs (minimum 50 passes). DYAR was 294, which ranked 4/85 WRs (minimum 50 passes). 8 touchdowns and 1 fumble. 64 percent catch percentage. 1,392 receiving yards on 180 targets (most in the league).

(2) Turner

DVOA was negative 1.5 percent (1.5 percent less successful than league-average), which ranked 23/45 RBs (minimum 100 carries). 1,371 rushing yards on 334 carries. 12 touchdowns and only 2 fumbles. 46 percent Success Rate (defined here if you've never heard of SR).

3) Snelling

DVOA was negative 4.5 percent (4.5 percent less successful than league-average). He only logged 87 carries, thus he doesn't technically have a DVOA rank. Had he logged 13 more carries, he'd be ranked 30/45 RBs. 325 rushing yards/2 touchdowns/1 fumble.

(4) Ryan

DVOA was 24 percent (24 percent more successful than league-average), which ranked 7th overall among QBs. 24 touchdowns/12 interceptions/62.8 percent completion percentage.

(5) Gonzalez

DVOA was 2.2 percent (2.2 percent more successful than league-average). 64 percent catch rate. 6 touchdowns and no fumbles.

(6) Baker/Blaylock/McClure/Dahl/Clabo

ALY was 4.23, which ranked 8/32 teams. Power Success was 68 percent, which ranked 9/32 teams. Stuffed rank was 19 percent, which ranked 20/32 teams. Adjusted Sack Rate was 5.4 percent (28 sacks), which ranked 8/32 teams.

Vote early and often folks. I'm voting for the Offensive Line, but I'm thinking this will be a close one.
