200 yd rushing games vs. 300 yd passing games

Postby Tarheelfan1138 » Fri Aug 29, 2003 9:38 pm

I'm trying to find 2002 stats for total number of 200 yard rushing games and 300 yard passing games. Who ran or passed in those games would be helpful, but not necessary. There is a movement in our league to give bonus points to 300 yard passers while giving nothing to anyone else and I'm trying to stop them with stats. Any help would be appreciated.

First of all, 300 yard passing games occur MUCH more than 200 yard rushing games. I think an equal equivalent would be a 100 yard rushing game.

Well, here are a few 200 yard rushing games from last year that I know of......

Rickey Williams: 228 yards at BUF, 216 yds vs CHI

LaDanian Tomlinson: 217 vs. NE, 220 vs. DEN

Clinton Portis: 228 vs ARI

Tiki Barber: 203 yds vs. PHI

I would be shocked if there were many more.

To put it in perspective, Gannon had 10, 300 yard passing games alone. Bledsoe had 7, and Manning had 4.

yeah 300 yard passers are equivalent to 100 yard rushers... not 200.

Matt Hassleback averaged 300 ypg passing last year. 3075 yds in 10 games. W/ the high-powered seattle offence (Koren, Alexander, D-Jax) I see him doing the same this year, kids a gunner.

200 yd rushing games vs. 300 yd passing games

yeah - the point i'm trying to get across is that 300 yard games are too common to be giving bonus points, especially when no other position players are getting bonus opportunities. had they brought this up pre-draft, it would be different. but it came up after the draft and i did not draft regular 300 yard passers - i went rb heavy.

ya, that's definitely NOT cool to change the rules AFTER the draft. The person that made this rule probably has Gannon, and wanted to feel good about taking an old guy.

if this was done before the draft, I would have seen this as a move that would bring more of a balance to the playing field between QBs and RBs. In every league, RBs are hot commodities, but this rule would make you value QBs highly as well.

it should definitely be either 100/300 or 200/400. It's definitely stupid to just have a 300+ bonus.
