Dak needs to get rid of the ball quicker and stop allowing himself to get sacked...
He holds on to the ball for a long time while he second and third guesses himself into a sack
It really is fascinating in this age of advanced stats that you get such divergent conclusions about similar things. We've also seen stats that the Cowboys are not bad in allowing pressure.
That plays a part. He's ranked 11th in average time from snap to sack.
Source? All the sources I have seen show we are bottom of the leauge. Here's another:
Also it’s interesting to note that two of the teams allowing more pressure than us have already beaten us. Makes me wonder how Wilson and Watson are getting it done
I'll dig them up.
Do you have this guys pressure rankings through 5 weeks?
Hopkins & Lockett might have something to do with it.
I believe the original post its though 5 weeks and the second one was after week 4.
Why don’t you do me a favor and check out Hopkins stats from 2016 the year Osweiler was the quarterback. Then let me know if you think it’s all the receiver and the quarterback doesn’t have anything to do with it
The edge pressure has been a legitimate issue this season, for sure.
My bad, I meant the week five stats in the 2nd link. I suspect the "sources" of those stats are different. ESPN, in the first post, has their own stats, the guy in the 2nd link took his stats from another source it appears.
Pressure rates are part subjective, it's not as clear cut as say completion percentage or TDs thrown to interceptions.
Which is where Dak likes it the least. La'El and Tyron need to step up.
You mean 2016 when he was 50 yards away from 1000? With Osweiler!
Shows he's legit.
Tyron Smith where art thou?
Oh, yeah they're different sources, but they both tell the same story which lends credibility to both.
They're better QBs.
Last year Dez had only 100 yards less than that last year and 2 more TD than Hopkins did in 16
Catching balls from Dak I’d say that’s legit
Seahawks are bottom 5 in yards/game. Seahawks are averaging only 9 yds a game more than us and only 20yds/game more in passing yards. We didn't get consistent pressure on Watson, their OL did a good job this past week or our guys weren't able to generate pressure.
Not sure what this tells us. You can hold the ball and get yourself into pressure. The amount of time he’s protected is all that really matters and every time I see that stat it shows Dallas to be in the upper echelon.
