I haven't been logging in much this season, so I've missed this thread. This is very nicely done! Thank you for taking the time to compile this data. The former ubiquity of "first and eight" has been a huge bugaboo of mine for as I've been on this board, so this is my kind of thread!
Once I review your sources and methods, I'd like to put together a sister thread for "and short" downs. Given the size and power of our O-line and the substantial added weight of our jumbo package, I'd like to know what is going on there, and whether it is as bad as I suspect.
Great thread, I look forward to diving into it when I have the chance.
Thanks so much for the review and comments. I work off the very detailed analysis that Mr.Mcgibblets compiles each and every week on our offensive/defensive production or lack thereof of every single play, snap-by-snap (much like a PFF or FO's). He then provides his own analysis/objective perceptions. Please reference his links in the first post. I will continue to keep this rolling list and provide any analysis and trends I note. I'd highly recommend using his platform and that of Whomeam (pinned on the first page of NinerTalk) where you can SEE every play for yourself via TV and Coaches Film views while comparing notes with Mr.Mcgibblets' analysis. Chances are, you'll be 95%+ in agreement anyhow!
I look forward to your research/analysis! We are doing our best to capture the "big picture" offense here so this added piece that nobody has reviewed yet will be great! Feel free to add here (I can edit the title) or start a new thread.
We've covered drop passes %, OL pass protection (break downs), run blocking, WR/QB assessment, play-calling, game-planning, in-game adjustments, trends such first down production or that we score most of our TD's on first down, the type of passing offense we run (e.g. pass under 3 seconds to a designed WR where the other 10 players play a role in the success of that play; and issues with it when that only-option WR is covered), etc.
We haven't really covered 3rd down %'s as it hasn't been an issue d/t the success on first down (minus the Lions game where where 52% on 1st downs but won that game d/t production on 3rd downs).
