I am sure a whole bunch of you saw the threads on the Seahawks overall defense and offense, and how high they are ranked in FO's system. Well they Hawks are #3 in defense, and are #2 in weighted (games that happened earlier in the season matter less than games that happened recently) defense, while they are #14 in offense, #11 in weighted offense.
Now since FO is such a cool site, I can fetch some of the rankings for groups and individuals, and some surprised me....
Zach Miller is the #16 rated TE in terms of receiving DYAR http://www.footballoutsiders.com/stats/te2012
Russell Wilson is the #14 rated QB in terms of DYAR, even after his disastrous start to the season. We might finally have a top 10 QB again folks.....http://www.footballoutsiders.com/stats/qb2012
Marshawn Lynch is the #2 rated RB in terms of DYAR!!! Only 13 behind AP!http://www.footballoutsiders.com/stats/rb2012
Sidney Rice is the #11 rated receiver in the whole league in terms of DYAR, but then look at DVOA (more value per play, instead of more overall value, which is DYAR) and Rice jumps to #4! Woah!
BTW, Tate is rated as the #30 receiver in the whole league, one spot below Michael Crabtree. Switch that number to DVOA again though (more valuable for receivers in our offense since they don't run a lot of routes) and he jumps to #21.
Our special teams are #10 in the whole league...http://www.footballoutsiders.com/stats/teamst2012
Not bad at all.
Here's some defensive line rankings, with the Hawks at #13 for run defense and #11 for pass rush.www.footballoutsiders.com/stats/dl2012
Now here's some good offensive stats. In the whole league, we are #4 in run blocking, and #14 in pass pro. http://www.footballoutsiders.com/stats/ol2012
That's some really good run blocking.
Here's our playoff odds....http://www.footballoutsiders.com/stats/playoffodds
Right now we have a 75.7% chance of making the playoffs. Hopefully that number raises after this week!
And finally, in overall team efficiency, we are.....http://www.footballoutsiders.com/stats/teameff2012
#6, but we jump to #5 in weighted terms.
I'll take it.
