The Moss Impact: From Cold Hard Football Facts
posted at 11/2/2010 9:22 PM EDT
For those who underestimate Moss's impact on a defense, I cut and pasted a portion of a CHFF article that TexasPat posted his Report Card thread...
PERCY HARVIN WILL MISS RANDY MOSS
In three games before the arrival of Moss, Percy Harvin caught 12 passes for 106 yards and 0 TD. That’s an average of four catches, 35.3 YPG and 8.3 YPC.
In four games with Moss, Percy Harvin caught 19 passes for 287 yards and 2 TD. That’s an average of five catches, 72 YPG and 15.1 YPC.
Harvin also had 5 rushes for 59 yards and one touchdown with Moss compared to 2 rushes, 15 yards and zero TD without him. The Vikings team as a whole averaged 14.6 PPG without Randy Moss compared to 21.5 PPG with him.
Well done Brad Childress. Idiot.
HARVIN CAN COMMISERATE WITH WES WELKER
The Randy Moss impact is being felt in New England, too, namely by pint-sized underneath slot whiz Wes Welker.
In four games with Moss, Welker caught 26 passes for 217 yards and 3 TD. That's and average of 6.5 catches, 54 YPG and 8.3 YPC.
In three games without Moss, Welker has caught 14 passes for 102 yards and 0 TD. That's an average of 4.7 catches, 34 YPG and 7.3 YPC.
Of course, if you're against Moss because of his diva issues, none of this matters, LOL.
