Team Trends - Passing/Running

Postby STLCover2 » Sun Sep 05, 2004 3:15 pm


Which teams to you expect will put up significantly different numbers in these categories from last year?

I have almost every team projected with a few more passing yards because of the rule changes this year. But the most important changes I'm looking at have to do with system and personnel changes.

For example, the Arizona Cardinals may pass more under Dennis Green (though all their weapons are hurt). The Jets, having acquired Justin McCareins, will probably pass more as well. Philadelphia will also be up because of the acquisition of Owens and the loss of Staley, Buckhalter in the running game.

As for running is concerned, I don't really know what to expect.

Any one have some insights in team run/pass projections?

Can you explain a couple of those to me...specifically Jacksonville and Oakland. I figured Jacksonville would be more apt to pass, what with an improving Leftwich as a weapon.

I don't know a whole lot about Oakland...what do you see going on there.

This is how I see it compared to what they did last year

Indianapolis: Same (if it aint broke, don't fix it)
New England: More rushing (Dillon)
Jacksonville: More passing (Leftwich is improving, new weapons at WR)
Buffalo: More rushing (new offensive coordinator)
Detroit: More rushing (Kevin Jones will help)
Chicago: More passing (Lovie Smith wants a Rams' like offense)
Baltimore: More passing (I think the Ravens will try to rely a little less on Jamal this year, and see what Boller can do)
Cleveland: Slightly more passing (Garcia, Winslow will help)
San Diego: More rushing (all they have is LT2)
Houston: Same (nothing's changed)
Tennessee: Same (chris brown is very george-like)
Miami: More passing (will have no choice with Ricky gone)
Seattle: Same (if it ain't broke, don't fix it)
New Orleans: More passing (more single back sets condusive to passing)
Cincinnati: More passing (Cincy faces some brutal run defenses. I think they will HAVE TO pass more)
NY Jets: Slightly more passing (pennington's healthy)
Oakland: More rushing (norv turner)
Pittsburgh: More rushing (new offensive coordinator)
Arizona: More passing (Dennis Green loves to pass, they have no RB's)
St. Louis: More rushing (Faulk's healthy)
Tampa Bay: slightly more passing (Garner is like an extra WR)
Washington: More rushing (Gibbs)
Dallas: More rushing (Better RB's)
Minnesota: Same (if it aint broke, don't fix it)
NY Giants: slightly more rushing (Dayne's back, unproven QB's)
Philadelphia: More passing (Owens added, Staley and C-Buck gone)
Atlanta: More passing (Vick's healthy)
San Francisco: More rushing (unproven QB's WR's)
Kansas City: More rushing (No WR's)
Denver: Same (Nothing much has changed)
Carolina: Same (nothing much has changed)
Green Bay: Same (nothing much has changed)
