My post was in response to this, which I perceived as your thesis.
Now, it seems logical to me that comp% will be lower when you throw more lower % passes (long) and that you will have fewer pass yards when you throw fewer passes.
So please explain why these stats are better than passer rating for measuring whether a QBs ability to pass has been ruined. Why do you think the passer rating was invented if not for measuring ability to pass?
Or do you feel that TW was just a great QB and would've been top 5 rather than top 15 if not ruined by CPJs system?
Because the formula is based on the typical offense that passes more than us. In other words we have so few attempts and our only passing game is the deep ball if you miss 2 but hit one 60 yarder the formula rewards you. Now in a passing offense with many attempts this one hit of 60 yards is more hidden statistically. Passing efficiency is meant to portray and effective (which we can be) but also consistent passing game which we are not even close to being. And that is my point. We are not setup to ever have a consistent passing game period despite the efficiency numbers. When we hit a big play can it and is it effective. Yes. Can we still be productive on o for sure! But my points are based in the general fans desire to have a more consistent passing game and i am pointing out why thay will never be the case and the efficiency stat doesnt help either side of the argument. It just says we are effective when we hit a big pass. Ok yes we are. No biggy.
But we will never have a consistent rhythmic passing game with decent comp percentages by design. Again. Doesnt mean the o cant be fine it is real that we are not set up schematically to pass. Thats my point
