Pro Football Focus (PFF) has compiled their annual quarterba

rankings in a 341-page manifesto covering just about any aspect one can dream of on 35 NFL signal callers. For those unfamiliar with PFF White Harrison Phillips Jerseys , they grade every throw made for each quarterback across a variety of metrics such as ball placement, potential for a turnover, and far more. While this results in rankings, it also gives comparisons to every other quarterback in many key measures.In a stunning coincidence, the Buffalo Bills happen to have a quarterback. He goes by the name of “Josh Allen.” PFF had plenty to say on the rookie quarterback, much of which won’t assuage the fears of Bills fans. Allen was up and down all season, with weekly rankings from first to worst. PFF called Allen “a fascinating player to watch in 2018, as you had no idea what you were going to get from play to play or game to game.” Allen’s season had him rated as the 27th-best quarterback.Allen’s critics often cite inaccuracy as a potentially insurmountable problem. His completion percentage of 52.8% only helps that argument. One area PFF examines is adjusted completion rate Harrison Phillips Jerseys 2019 , which accounts for things like dropped passes, throwaways, and spiked balls. With these considerations, Allen’s adjusted completion percentage climbs to 64.7%, which is a big jump. Unfortunately, when looking at every quarterback with this lens, Allen is dead last in the league. The NFL average was 75.3%. There is some comfort to be found, however White Taron Johnson Jerseys , as all five first-round rookies were below average. Lamar Jackson, Josh Rosen and Sam Darnold round out the bottom four, with Baker Mayfield only barely missing out on league average (74%). An interesting area of measurement comes from PFFs grading of “Big Time Throws” and “Turnover-Worthy Plays.” Big Time Throws are made when a pass was considered high difficulty and high value. In other words, likely to result in a big play while showing a lot of skill. Turnover-Worthy Plays are those that carry a high risk of resulting in a turnover. Allen is decently above average when it comes to Turnover-Worthy Plays (that’s bad). He’s also a little better than average at creating Big Time Throws. As a result, Allen is placed in the “Volatile” category in a quadrant-based labeling system. The other three labels aside from “volatile” are “best,” “worst” and “safe.” Darnold, Jackson and Rosen landed in the “worst” quadrant. Mayfield found himself in “best.” PFF has a ton of fun odds and ends to look through, so to whet your appetite here’s a couple more Allen facts. Allen had the longest average time to throw at 3.2 seconds. Lamar Jackson had the second-longest and was the only rookie anywhere in the neighborhood of Allen. Under pressure Taron Johnson Jerseys 2019 , Allen was graded as the 13th-best quarterback of the 35 ranked. If you’re interested in the full thing (and there’s plenty of reason to be), head through to this conveniently clickable link right here. A subscription is required, but it’s worth the price of admission if you’re itching for a deep dive. The Buffalo Bills have fired special teams coordinator Danny Crossman, per several simultaneous reports (among them Matthew Fairburn of The Athletic, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, John Wawrow of The Associated Press, Mike Rodak from ESPN, and Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News). Rumors of the firing began circulating on social media around the same time as word escaped that Juan Castillo had been fired. Crossman had been orchestrating Buffalo’s special teams since 2013 White Tre’Davious White Jersey , operating through three different coaching regimes (four if you count interim head coach Anthony Lynn).Special teams arguably cost the Bills a game or two this year. A missed field goal, aborted extra point, and an awful onside kick contributed to a 24-12 loss to the New England Patriots. In a loss to the New York Jets, two touchdowns resulted from outstanding field position on kickoff returns against the Bills, and the team missed two field goals in a 23-27 loss. Against the Miami Dolphins, missed kicks cost a net four points, and a fumbled punt return gifted Miami an easy touchdown drive in a game with a four-point scoring margin. Any way you look at it, gaffes defined the group this season.Crossman’s special teams units suffered from major injuries to the key players this year. Kicker Stephen Hauschka played through an injury for the final quarter of the season. After starting the season 17-of-19 on field goal attempts Tre’Davious White Jersey 2019 , Hauschka finished the year 5-of-9. Captain Taiwan Jones went onto injured reserve halfway through the season with a neck injury. The team tried out four different punters this year, with rookie Cory Carter dropping onto injured reserve during the preseason just as he’d created a battle with incumbent Colton Schmidt. Rookie Corey Bojorquez was signed as the new starter, suffered a shoulder injury in October, and was placed on injured reserve after trying unsuccessfully to play through the injury for three weeks. Schmidt returned to the roster, but was cut for ineffectiveness, and journeyman punter Matt Darr finished the season for the team in poor form.Crossman is the third Buffalo Bills coach to see his contract ended this season, joining Juan Castillo and Terry Robiskie.
