affected by nerves?!?! LOL
The dude is getting plowed through by 300 lbs of beef on a regular occurrence!!
38 Sacks is still less than 58... but there's 2 games left and Im thinking it will polish off around 45.
RT gets hit too much, and he gets back up and keeps playing.
If you want to push the issue that his rating is better by 20 points on 1st & 2nd down but worse on third down.... please find me a quarterback that doesnt have the same issue.
If your passing on 3rd down, I would imagine 80% of the time, you are in a "& Long" situation which is an obvious passing down where defenses are preparing to stop the pass..... Not exactly the case for first and second down is it?
I would imagine EVERY QB has a better 1st and 2nd down rating than their third down passer rating. Interesting conclusion you are drawing there, but unless you can show me another QB that bucks that trend, your point is moot.
Well, you can't blame being hit, because he's being hit all game, so if was based on that his rating wouldn't plummet on 3rd down, in the 4th quater and when trailing, they'd be bad all game.
Yes, nearly all QBs ratings fall a bit in these situations, but Tanne's go in the tank, dropping over 20 points.
When I did my post I looked for other examples, and I didn't need to go to Manning and Brady to see a difference, how about no ones favorite QB Joe Flacco, on 1st and 2nd down he has about an 87 rating, on 3rd he has an 82, when leading or tied he has an 89 rating, when trailing it's 80, in the 1-3 quaters he has about an 85 rating, in the 4th he has an 87.
How about the other guy mentioned in this post, Jay Cutler, not saying I want him or would trade for or him because I wouldn't, but, 1st and 2nd down 88, 3rd 80, when leading or tied 88, when trailing 82, 1-3 quaters 87, 4th 84.
These are 2 marginal franchise QBs imo, Tanne crucial situation differential is much worse, looking at the top of the heap,
stats follow this order- 3rd down, when trailing, 4th quater
A Rodgers, 109, 99, 103.
T Brady, 93, 90, 92
P Manning 90, 90, 92.
R Wilson, 91, 94, 97.
A Luck, 89, 82, 85.
R Tannehill, 72, 79, 73.
He is performing poorly in crucial situations, that isn't even a debate, we've also seen it on the field the last few weeks, saw it on the field last year, and all these stats do is back up what your eyes are seeing, that is usually due to nerves getting to a person, whether it's playing pool, throwing darts, bowling or being a professional athlete, nerves play a factor, I think thats what Tanne's problem is, I see it in my pool league all the time, it changes how people perform, for better or worse.
