    In-Depth Look at Stafford's 2013 Season

    SideLionReport broke down a PFF article on Mr. Stafford, here are their highlights: http://sidelionreport.com/2014/07/04...s-2013-season/

    Strengths

    • Graded at +10.1 on third down
    • Showed well on 2nd-and-long (+5.4), 3rd-and-10+ (+4.0), and 3rd-and-short (+4.2).
    • Third-highest grade on passes in the 1-to-10-yard range (+10.3).
    • Graded at +3.0 on passes in the 31-to-40-yard range.
    • Third-highest grade on passes between the numbers at +16.3.
    • Fifth-highest grade in a clean pocket at +23.9.
    • Ranked second in non-blitz situations at +19.3.
    • Consistent across all drop-back types: 4-6 yards (+5.5), 7-8 yards (+7.0), 9 yards or more (+5.7).
    • Graded best in 2.6-to-3.0-second range (+6.4) and 3.1-to-3.5-second range (+5.4).
    • Second-highest grade when throwing to outside WR (by alignment) at +21.0.
    • Third-highest grade when throwing to slot WR (by alignment) at +12.9.
    • Among the league’s best when throwing to tight ends (all alignments) at +7.3.
    • Showed well on outs (+6.4), ins (+6.8), hitches (+6.0), and post routes (+8.5).
    Pro Football Focus seems to be higher on Stafford than most are. Most of these grades aren’t too surprising and tend to correlate with each other.

    Stafford found most of his success throwing down the middle of the field, completing 64 percent of those passes with 8.9 yards per attempt.

    With a clean pocket, Stafford was lights out and threw 26 of his 29 touchdown passes.

    Stafford accounted for 26.3 percent of his total yards on 2nd and long with a 91.1 quarterback rating.

    Weaknesses

    • Graded at -2.8 on passes thrown at least 20 yards in the air and -3.2 on passes thrown at least 40 yards.
    • Graded at -4.3 when pressured, including -6.3 against blitz pressure.
    • Graded at -3.7 when pressure came in two seconds or less and -2.0 on pressure that came in after 3.6 seconds.
    • Worst routes were quick outs (-0.2) and comebacks (-0.4).
    It’s no surprise that Stafford didn’t fair too well against the blitz or when pressured. His wide receivers struggled to get separation all year, so Stafford didn’t really have any options but to dump it off for a screen or throw it Megatron’s way when pressured early.

    Stafford’s deep ball accuracy has been an issue throughout his career, but he was especially bad last year only completing 29 percent of his passes that were 20-plus yards beyond the line of scrimmage, and 25 percent of his throws over 40 yards.

    Tendencies

    • Fifth-highest percentage of drop-backs from the shotgun or pistol at 85.5%.
    • Faced pressure on only 28.9% of drop-backs, fourth-lowest in the league.
    • Blitzed only 25.1% of the time, fifth-lowest percentage in the league and faced third-down blitzes only 27.7% of the time, third-lowest in the league.
    • Highest percentage of throws between the numbers at 61.7%.
    • Above the league average with 30.1% of drop-backs ending in two seconds or less and third-highest percentage in the 2.1-to-2.5-second range at 31.6%. Only 9.3% of drop-backs lasted at least 3.6 seconds, fourth-lowest in the league.
    • 23.7% of passes went to running backs, above the league average of 19.6%. 3.9% of passes went to running backs in the slot, third-highest percentage in the league.
    • Threw, by far, the highest percentage of slants at 13.9%, fourth-highest percentage of post routes at 9.2%, and the fifth-highest percentage of in routes at 8.1%.
    • Threw the second lowest percentage of out routes at 5.9% and the fifth-lowest percentage of hitches at 11.1%.

    The first thing that jumped out at me was how high of a percentage Stafford threw slants compared to other quarterbacks. He threw slants on 13.9 percent of his throws, which was almost double the NFL average. The next closest was Josh McCown at 11.6 percent.

    The percentage of passes thrown to running backs will only increase this year with Joe Lombardi bringing over the Saints’ playbook.

    With the Lions’ offensive line being one of there strongest units last year, it comes as no surprise that Stafford didn’t see a whole lot of pressure and was able to have a clean pocket for the majority of his snaps.

    Here's the original PFF article: https://www.profootballfocus.com/blo...thew-stafford/

    Anyone else surprised how well he graded on short throws compared to the rest? Always seemed like he was dunking it off guy's feet.

    Those throw over the middle numbers are impressive considering he had to throw to guys like Pettigrew, Durham, Ogeltree etc. I want to see the damage he could really do up the middle with real talent like Ebron.

    Good call. Calvin, Ebron & Tate is SO much better than Calvin, Grew & Durham

    Seriously hoping staff make a the leap to elite QB this year, at least I hope the media starts to ask that question because of the great year he has.

    I'm disappointed they didn't study deeper on the effects the ball cap angle. If he comes out and it goes straight backwards, did he have a good series or a bad series? What kind of series did he have next? What if the angle of the brim was 5% off kilter, 10%, etc...
