D3 Quarterback Stats Comparison Topic

My D3 quarterback, last season vs this season stats.  (Michael Whitaker, Wilkinson, D3, Rose-Hulman)

Note:  This guys starts and most of his playing time last season were in the CC game and Playoffs.

Even though the engine changed, I think we have a very similar passing game from an All Shotgun attack.  The OL is a little bit worse this season vs last.  When taking the level of competition into account, I'd say that the yardage is a bit less than I would have expected under the 2.0 engine.  He has also scrambled for some big gains, which did not happen before (ask helgi about that).

The only real items that stick out, is the number of INTs and Sacks.  Clearly DBs and defenses in general did not get worse regarding INTs.  My OL is not that much worse to be giving up so many more sacks.

I would do the same thing, but I largely completely changed my offense this year so its not a fair comparison.

I can't really speculate on GD mechanics, but a change like this in real life reflects better decision making on the part of the QB. Learning when to take the sack and when to force a throw is a big part of development for a QB. After all, isn't it almost 99% better to take the sack than throw a pick? It does seem, however, that such a big change between years 4 and 5 is a bit much.

It could also be a factor in the teams you played having better front sevens and DBs with frying pans for hands.

Rice:  I see what you are saying, but my QB is not an anomaly...this just illustrates what is happening across the entire game.  I'm not necessarily saying its good or bad...but the engine changed, and some of the outcomes changed along with it.

Then you have some good stats showing the initial lack (at least) of interceptions in 3.0. My world is close to the CC and interceptions seem to be back. My DBs, which were good ball-hawks last year, were getting nothing at the beginning of the year and have combined for 8 in the last 3 weeks.
