Final NFL Rushing Efficiency

Today we will tackle the running offense.  Again these stats are from NFL.com and tell us what percent better or worse a team performed in each category adjusted for their schedule.  The second table adjusts the numbers based on a team facing an easier or more difficult than average schedule. The average run defense allowed 4.29 YPA, 0.029 touchdowns per attempt, 0.027 plays of 20 or more per attempt, and 0.005 plays of 40 or more yards per attempt.

How did the Jets fare?  Like the passing offense pretty poorly.  In YPA the Jets ranked 29th with -11.59% below the expected number.  For a team that considers the run game its strong point it was an eye opener about problems both on the line and in the backfield.  The Panthers ranked first which is likely in part to the QB being a tremendous runner the same reason the Eagles were second.  The Bills placed third and the Vikings fourth.  It would have been interesting to see how those teams did had their star runners not gotten injured.  The Jets ranked 14th in touchdowns, and like the passing game, is what saved them from total disaster.   The offense simply does not gain yards consistently but when they do they were scoring 7 instead of 3 like they did in 2009 and 2010.  The really strange team here was the Giants who were far and away the worst running team in the NFL, yet they scored 47.4% more tds than expected per attempt.  Panthers/Eagles were one and two again.  Big plays were a nightmare finishing 29th in the 20+ category and tied for dead last with 5 others in the 40+ category.  The Ravens and Raiders were ridiculous big play teams this year. 

I think this is a real indication that the offense needs to upgrade the talent level. They need more explosiveness in the backfield and they need better blocking up front.  This was the first time in the last 4 years that they finished below average in the YPA category  and it was the worst showing since 2006.  Right now they are down at those 2006 levels when they were trotting out players like Kevan Barlow at RB and Anthony Clement was playing RT. That’s not great company for Shonn Greene and Wayne Hunter to be associated with.

The Jets stats did not change much when adjusted for difficulty of schedule compared to the rest of the league as they played a relatively average schedule.
