2011 Final NFL Passing Offense Efficiency Rankings
New York Jets Salary Cap Page

Final NFL Passing Offense Efficiency

Here are the final efficiency ratings for the passing offenses in the NFL using the stats from NFL.com.  The yardage totals are a bit skewed as I believe they use net yards, which are adjusted for sacks. 

What these percentages tell us is how much better or worse that a team fared against their actual schedule on the season. To illustrate:  the Jets yards per attempt of -14.42% means they were 14.42% worse than what their schedule allowed on the season.  For the Jets that translates into a yard less per pass, which is pretty terrible.  The statistics are adjusted to remove the offenses performance from the calculation.  For example the Jets offensive stats are pulled out of the total in order to determine how the defenses played against teams besides the Jets. 

The second table is an attempt to put all the teams on equal footing by seeing how much easier or harder the schedules were than the average NFL schedule. On the season the aveage completion percentage was 60.07%, 6.75 YPA, 11.23 YPC, 0.043TDs per attempt,  0.029 Ints per attempt,  0.094 plays of 20 or more yards per attempt, 0.017 plays of 40 or more yards per attempt,  and 0.068 sacks per attempt. Using the Jets again as an example they faced a schedule that allowed 7.04 YPA, meaning their schedule was about 4.35% easier than the average schedule.  So that makes their -14.42% in YPA even worse since they played such an easy schedule. I’ll add that back in to come up with their adjusted score of  -18.78%.

So how did the Jets do on the year?  Terrible.  In completion percentage they ranked 26th.  Denver was the worst team and the best team in the NFL was no surprise the Saints completing nearly 16% more than expected.  The Jets were 26th in YPA, while Green Bay was far and away best in the NFL.  24th in YPC where again the Packers were the top team, by a slim margin over the Giants.  The Jets made a big improvement in TDs per attempt where they ranked 12.  This is pretty much what kept them from being similar to a team like the Browns or Chiefs on the year who had similar yardage success but never threw into the end zone.  Had it not been for this Sanchez would have been run out of town as scoring hides a lot of offensive weaknesses.  Interceptions saw the team finish 20th.  The best in the NFL was the 49ers who really had the reigns on Alex Smith.  You wonder if the Jets should have taken that approach in 2009.  Tampa was atrocious in that category and Josh Freeman totally regressed in 2011.  Im not sure anyone can even explain that fall from grace.  Big plays were non existent.  28th in the 20+ yard category and 32nd in the 40+ category.  Carolina actually had the most 20 yard plays while the Giants big play offense ranked first in the 40 category.  Pass protection was just below average where they ranked 19th in sacks.   New Orleans ranked first. 

When you adjust the stats based on the how much easier or more difficult the schedules were on the year the Jets fall further since they played such an easy schedule.  They dropped to 29th in YPA, 29th in YPC, 16th in TDs, and 32nd in 20 yard plays.  It was just a bad year any way you slice it. 

Anyway like I said just a little fun with some numbers to try to put things in perspective.  The column headers should be sortable if you click on them. Feel free to ask any questions or point out errors if you see them.
