    Post any weird NFL trends or statistics

    Eagles Home Opener

    Code:
    For the past 4 years, the winner of the Super Bowl has played in the first Eagles home game. Could this mean a Super Bowl for the Chargers?
    Super Bowl Aftermath

    Code:
    After each Super Bowl, the winning team experiences a sub-par season. This year, the Ravens went 8-8 the season after they won the Super Bowl.
    Post any other weird NFL trends or statistics that you find interesting.

    not all teams suffer a bad season after winning the superbowl: the repeating superbowl champs in the patriots, the packers going 15-1 after winning the superbowl, etc

    True but when was the last time a sb winner won a playoff game? Ravens this year, giants didn't make it last year, packers lost to the giants after their bye, saints lost on the beast mode run, steelers didn't get in in 2009 right? Giants lost to eagles after their bye in 2008, 2007 was the colts and they lost to San Diego.

    Here's some:

    1. nick foles led the league in % touchdowns/attempt at 8.5, slightly beating peyton manning who was at 8.3
    2. Geno Smith had the 7th most 25+ yard passes
    3. Jordy Nelson has the most catches 25+ yards or more, a testiment to his underrated speed
    4. Russel Wilson whose 5'11, has only had 6 passes bat down at the LOS, matt stafford whose 6'3, has had 19 passes bat down at the LOS
    Tony Romo had the best completition % in the NFL when the game was late & close (minimum 30 pass attempts)

    2013: 2
    2012: 5
    2011: 2

    The Previous 4 prior to that:

    2010: 7
    2009: 6
    2008: 5
    2007: 6

    And the previous 4 before that:

    2006: 10
    2005: 10
    2004: 9
    2013: 13

    Herschel Walker one season had a 90+ yard run, reception and kick return in 1994. He not only was the only player to do that in one season, but to do it in a career as well.

    In 1990 Randall Cunningham finished 9th in the NFL in rushing (ahead of Emmitt Smith, Bo Jackson, Eric Dickerson, Marcus Allen, Herschel Walker, Ottis Anderson, Christian Okoye, etc.) with 942 yards. In 2006 when Michael Vick broke the 1000 yard mark, he finished 21st in the league in rushing.



    For those that think the rule changes have favored the offense too much and 80's/90's records being broken aren't fair...

    The avg QB rating has gone from an 81 to an 84 in the past 10 years (4%). Avg passing TD's have gone up by 2.2 (10%), avg passing yards per game have gone up by 25 yards (12%). This is most likely due to the "opening up the offense" and "player safety" rule changes. Points per game has gone up by.... 2 (10%).

    in 1978 the NFL made similar changes to help offenses and make the game safer. In a 4 year span (77-80) QB rating went from a 57.8 to a 71.3 (23% increase). Passing TD's went up by 8 TD's (55%), and avg passing yards per game went up by 54 yards (38%). Points per game went up by 3.3 (20%)

    An overtime coin toss win has more effect on the won/loss outcome of a game than an opening drive FG. (3-0 lead in the first 5 minutes of the game).

    Marvin Harrison scored a TD in just 1 of his 16 playoff games. That is also his only 100 yard receiving performance in the playoffs.

    Terrell Davis is 6th all time in playoff rushing. Ray Rice is the active leader. Willie McGinest is the all time leader in playoff sacks.

    John Elway is 2nd all time in SB rushing TD's.

    Chiefs haven't won't a game with a QB drafted by KC since Todd Blackledge.. That might be the worst one I've heard

    I've been witness to this not being true.
    [QUOTE=det32;28757687]assuming you where going to say something about me being "harsh" or "hatting" on Wilson.. i hate to brake it to you but he is a "borderline starter" at best.. my 20th- 25th QB.. that's not hating that's just being real.. /QUOTE]

    I think the Chargers are a good bet at 40-1. Bengals haven't won a playoff game in over a decade. Chargers are also very hot right now.

    How about some oddites?


    Cookie Gilchrist Buffalo Bills fullback only player in pro football history to rush for a 1000 yards in a season with no college background. Straight from high school into the CFL.

    Joe "The Jet" Perry the only JC only (Compton) player to gain a 1000 yards in an NFL season.

    O.J. Simpson the only 1000 yard back to be in the Hall of Fame who also held a track world record. He was on a great USC 4x1 team, fellow NFLer to be Earl McCullouch (13.2 hurdler) also on that team.

    The Niners the only team to have three future Hall of Fame backs all there together. The above mentioned Joe Perry, Hugh "The King" McElhenny and bruiser John Henry Johnson.

    Big Curtis Dickey the only NFL running back (Colts) to ever be world ranked (while at Texas A&M) in the 100m, he was a 10.10 guy. No starting NFL back ever ran faster.

    USC has given the NFL five Heisman winning running backs...Mike Garrett, O.J.Simpson, Charles White, Marcus Allen, Reggie Bush.

    Charger running back Keith Lincoln (Wash St) the only running back to score...

    rushing
    receiving
    PAT
    field goal
    punt return
    KO return

    Demps was never world ranked and has never started an NFL game.

    The fastest player to ever line up as an NFL running back based on 100m times would be Trindon Holliday, he wasn't a starter however.

    Also, did I mention that the last 3 Super-Bowl winners, who not only played the Eagles at home, but also lost to the Redskins during the season have gone on to win the super bowl. Oh did you know?

    Surprised no one mentioned;

    In 1985, Roger Craig, RB of the 49ers, had both rushing and receiving totals of 1,000 yards apiece. He was the first player to accomplish such a feat.

    In 1983, John Elway, Dan Marino, and Jim Kelly were all drafted in the first round. That’s a pretty decent draft class.
