FiveThirtyEight: Terrible Year for Quarterback Injuries

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 12:50:38 -0500

For FiveThirtyEight, I took a look at what has been a brutal season of quarterback injuries in the NFL. Beyond stars such as Aaron Rodgers and Andrew Luck, we've lost an extremely promising rookie (Deshaun Watson), a former No. 1 overall pick who may have been ready to peak (Sam Bradford), and a veteran on his last legs (Carson Palmer). We looked at adjusted games lost for quarterbacks since 2000 and adjusted the numbers by passing DVOA to get a sense of the quality of quarterbacks lost to injury. 2017 hasn't been the worst season on record, but it's sure getting there, and hopefully we won't have to add much to the injury database the rest of the year.

Bills Bench Taylor, Start Peterman

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 11:09:40 -0500

I don't even know where to start with this decision. I don't know why the Bills have been so intent on getting rid of Tyrod Taylor, but the time to do it is the offseason not the midseason. The guy is the most underrated quarterback in the game, he's been average this season according to DVOA, and you're going to bench him for a fifth-round rookie? A lot of Bills fans complain that the problem is too many third-down checkdowns to Mike Tolbert. Well, Taylor's ALEX on third down was 4.0 in 2015, 2.6 in 2016, and then 0.1 this year. Maybe the checkdown problem isn't about Taylor himself.
