PFF: Morris No. 38 On ‘Top 101 of 2012’

Posted by Chris Herting on May 9, 2013 – 4:43 pm


Running back Alfred Morris had a sensational rookie campaign in which he set multiple franchise and rookie rushing records. His 1,613 yards on the ground were good for second in the league behind only Adrian Peterson (NFL MVP). His 13 touchdowns ranked second in the NFL behind only three-time Pro Bowler and two-time All-Pro running back Arian Foster.

That’s why, when Pro Football Focus (PFF) released their ‘Top 101 of 2012’, Morris cracked the list at number 38.

The fine NFL mathematicians over at Pro Football Focus recently compiled a list of the best and worst receivers in the league, based on the rate of passes dropped in 2011.

Drops are one of the trickier stats in the NFL, because one man’s drop is another man’s incomplete pass.  Determining if a pass was ‘catchable’ is a judgment on the part of the stats crew, and is rarely a black and white discussion.

With that being said, the Redskins had one of each in their top two receivers catching honors: Jabar Gaffney, for his ridiculously good hands this season, and Santana Moss for being uncharacteristically shaky.

Here’s a look at the numbers, with a possible explanation for the failures. Read more »
