As season 4 quickly approaches, I want to take some time to reflect on the most important position in the league; The Quarterback. During seasons 1 & 2, there were talks about the league having too few skilled QBs in the league. In Season 3, staff took out Gunslinger QBs to make offenses less effective (70% comp rate in season 2). This received mixed reviews since a lot of opinions around the league thought the QB position was already difficult as is. Despite the 70% comp rate, the league’s QB was throwing more INTs to TDs (246 to 296).
As Season 3 concludes, let us take a look at the data between both seasons and determine if the QBs in the league are improving.
Pass YD per COMP
TD to INT Ratio
Pass Yards per game
Pass TDs per game
Pass INTs per game
This may be a shocker to some, but in Season 3, almost every category improved compared to Season 2.
The Pass % declined by less than 1% which isn’t too dramatic.
An increase of Passing yards per completion.
the TD to INT ratio increased greatly.
The passing yards per game did decline but keep in mind the gentlemen’s code was enforced this season to prevent stat padding.
Passing TDs per game increased while the Pass INTs per game decreased.
Lastly, the QBR made a huge improvement.
It’s safe to say that the QBs in this league are becoming more efficient at running their offenses. From my own experience, I figured there was an improvement since my contributions on defense became less effective (or I just suck lol).
Season 4 Predictions
I’ll keep it short; Offenses will continue to improve compared to Season 3. Why? Well, Gunslinger is back boys!!! Gunslinger was out in Season 3 and look how improved offenses became when Gunslinger was a thing in Season 2.
