Is There A Stat For Qb Pressures? Seems Like We Have Alot

43 posts in this topic

Seems like although we dont have all that many sacks we have a TON of QB pressures. I remember before the season in an interview Nolan saying that QB pressures were just as important as sacks. Hurries force mistakes and we have forced alot of mistakes. Is there a stat or a way to see who has QB pressures?

I'm not really sure. But that does go to show that stats don't always tell the whole story.

Pulling at straws here folks.

Fact remains; TD has yet to add a decent piece to the DL in his 5 years as GM.

that isnt the question i was askin. This post has nothing to do with who we drafted, we been blitzing safeties and corners etc. Plus we drafted Corey Peters and Peria seems to be plugging some holes. Beirman getting pressure..Spoon is pressuring QBs didnt he draft those guys?

Pro Football Focus might give you something but I think it's going to be at a player level and may only be available as a 'premium statistic' meaning you have to pay for it.

An alternative way to look at QB pressures would be overall pass defense and turnovers... both of which I believe we've been pretty good at.

14 sacks - 12 hits - 47 hurries

Leaders:

Sacks - Babs (4), Abe & Spoon (3 ea)

Hits - Abe (3), Spoon, Biermann, Edwards (2 ea)

Hurries - Abe (10), Biermann (8), Spoon & Babs (5 ea)

Thanks Tandy !

I feel like the Falcons rarely get pressure wacko.png

But interestingly enough, we're only 2 sacks behind the Texans (who have the league leader in sacks). So I like where we stand. You can game plan for one player (JJ Watt), you can't for an entire team.

Pressure stats don't tell the whole picture because they don't track how long the pressure was on the QB and where the pressure came from. If number of QB hurries was real measure Falcons had one of the best pass rush in 2011 even better than Ravens. It would be great if there are some stats on what the pressure did to the QB.

I remember Mike Nolan saying the samething when he came to Atlanta. I want 10 guys having 4 sacks than 4 guys having 10 sacks.

I don't know why ppl keep saying we're not getting any pass rush. We're doing well. We're 11th in sacks AFTER playing two of the most mobile and dangerous qb's in the league. Next is Palmer which could easily make for a 4-5 sack day if he keeps trying to go deep to his speedy receivers. Like I said in the offseason if we get 40-50 sacks this year that's a playoff caliber defense. Normally sacks and pressure come from Abe but the Dline has 8.5 sacks amongst them. That's what we want.

There is - it's a quarterback stat, though. The results of the pressure is not really something the defender can control - it's how the QB handles pressure situations.

In our case, Ryan is ranked #2 in the league at accuracy under pressure. A rookie is ranked #1 - guess who it is?

Is it wrong to think of you as Elias for TATF?

Where do the Falcons rank in the league in those stats?

As per PFF Ryan Tannehill has higher comp % than Ryan under pressure.

I understand what you are saying from stat perspective. But if you watch Terrell Suggs rushing the passer at certain angle and gap, usually QB is in a tough position to shrug it off and move around or complete a pass. Now if Ray Edwards is rushing the passer it is not very effective because the QB moves around or just makes Ray miss and completes the pass.
