McNabb's been awful against the blitz

October 28, 2009 11:33 AM

Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley

If I told you Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo had by far the best numbers against the blitz among NFC East quarterbacks, would you believe me? Well, that's exactly what the fine folks at ESPN's Stats & Information are telling me this morning.

Romo has the 10th best passer rating in the league (98.9) when teams bring at least one extra defender. Romo's thrown four touchdowns against the blitz and only one interception. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is the best in the league against the blitz with a 136.7 rating. He's an astounding 40-of-51 for 706 yards, four touchdowns and only one interception.

If not for the dreadful work against the blitz by Jake Delhomme and Derek Anderson, Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb would be the worst in the league with his 39.6 rating. He's 4-of-19 for 40 yards against the blitz. McNabb doesn't have nearly as many attempts against the blitz as other quarterbacks because he missed time with that rib injury. But he's about to make up for lost time when the Giants come to town Sunday. I think Bill Sheridan will send blitzes from all over the field. And Osi Umenyiora will be eager to face his old friend Winston Justice, the man who helped seal his first Pro Bowl appearance.

Giants quarterback Eli Manning is ranked 19th in the league with an 85.1 rating, but he's thrown for more touchdowns (7) against the blitz than any other quarterback. Only Tom Brady has attempted more passes against the blitz (98) than Manning's 96.

Redskins quarterback Jason Campbell checks in four spots behind Manning with a 77.9 passer rating. He's thrown for two touchdowns and three interceptions against the blitz. And by the way, Eagles backup quarterback Kevin Kolb checked in right behind Manning at No. 2o with an 83.7 rating. He threw for three touchdowns and three interceptions against the blitz.

Thanks once again to ESPN's Stats and Information group for passing this along. It's a tremendous resource for the Beast.




Romo is 10th in the NFL against the blitz this year.

Good article crisco. We all knew Wade is a blitzer, but it looks like it could work in Dallas' favor against the teams in the division. It looks like the pass rush is finally coming around too. They've got at least 3 sacks in the past four games. Marcus Spears has two sacks too. He's been playing better this year, and not many has noticed it. Maybe getting some sack stats will give him some validity in people's eyes.

Here are some interesting reads too

And this one has Romo ranked 3rd in the NFL in passer rating, he does his ratings unique and breaks Romo down

I stand by that as a motivational tool, look what it did to McNabb last year. Obviously they got to Romo without doing that, good! I am glad that putting Kitna in wasn't necessary.

I forgot that you were on that side. I thought I remembered dpl, lizard and thule all thinking it.

As a motivational tool I'm fine with a move like that based off timing. I didn't agree it was the right time at all.

On another note, did anyone notice that Danny Amendola is 2nd in the league behind Josh Cribbs in Kick returns? I'm happy for him he seemed like a good dude.

Miles Austin bitches!!!!!!



Lol no but seriously, I was a big advocate of Roy having the talent to be that #1 guy, but I'm also not a homer, and he's yet to prove it yet to me but I'm going to let the season play out and see how it goes.


Austin has looked so much more explosive everytime he catches the ball this year then Roy has but that's just what my eyes have showed me. I still think Roy wasn't getting the looks he needed earlier, last week he was hurt and it was obvious. It was obvious, even earlier this year when he wasn't performing that well he looked much better then last week but I really do still think he can have games, and times like vs Tampa Bay where he is being a stud.


I realized we gave up too much a long time ago, but I won't ***** and cry about it like some Cowboy fans will, because at worse I think Roy can be an over priced #2 WR for us who fits very well opposite Miles.


Can't wait to judge Roy on his entire body of work this year, and not just in spurts, but when I found out that Austin had more yards in the last 2 weeks then Roy in his entire tenture with Dallas Damn that just sounds terrible no matter how you look at it.


I wasn't directing that post towards you or anything, just that I was coming to make a post about him and I just happened to see his name in the last post lol.

He's actually getting PT there in the offense as well. Kind of shows you how thin the Rams are at WR. Good for Danny, though.

Does anyone else notice that when Tony throws to Roy, a lot of his passes are erratic? Yet, he throws to Miles and he's spot on every, single, time.

Tony hates Roy!!!!!!!

Question:how does miles austin emergence change the way defenses attack the cowboys? who on the cowboys needs to win their 1-1 battles for the cowboys to succeed?

don't know enough about defenses to understand what this does to the gameplan.

noticed on most of austin's big plays. he's ran a deep route, then comeback. so i've seen defense plays with the cb on the outside and lb on the inside. the cb on the outside and safety on the inside.

there's a play in the atlanta/dallas game, i think
2nd Quarter
2nd-9, ATL26 0:28 T. Romo passed to M. Austin down the middle for 17 yard gain

where romo has to make an accurate throw around the linebacker which illustrates this coverage.

then cb on outside and safety on deep inside.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yux4x...layer_embedded

but with defenses already bracketing/rushing from witten's side.

can defenses still play against the run in a 2te set?

if so, who has to emerge? will roy williams be in 1-1 coverage? will benett have to emerge? or does felix jones need to be used in space to beat this?

against the giants, the gaints kept safeties deep.

the broncos have such a good secondary they left them to play. then with their quick linebackers they were able to provide coverage and run support. then denver's dline held up strong against the cowboys.

Wow Cowboyz...I have no idea what that post says.

On another note I think we see a big week from RW this week...if there is one thing to love about this guy, is that he holds himself accountable. I expect to see a TD.

The first part there really is some truth to it, now it's hard to say whose at fault for that, or who needs to improve or get on the right page, but it is noticeable.

I think his emergence is very meaningful. One thing teams have done early this year is bracketing Witten a lot. I think the emergence of Austin makes the 2 TE sets even more effective now. The safeties have to respect Witten and Bennett plus the running game. Now Austin on the outside makes it even more difficult. There are very few CBs that can shut him down so I think you will see teams start to roll coverage to Austin, which means Witten and Bennett should see more favorable matchups again.

I am so interested to see how the Cowboys come out this weekend. This game should show where this team is headed. And based on talent, the we should kill the Seahags.

I am looking for a big game from the runningbacks. I want them to show Julius Jones what he was supposed to have been.

I would say that althought we are a much better team than the hags, the key to a blowout will be quarterback pressure. If our defense is back (which they seem to be) I am predicting a slaughter.

Cowboys 35-Seahags 13.

There is no turning back on my prediction now.

Another of the many thousands of good reasons they said Not No But Hell No to the Martellus Bennett to Cincy trade offer.

Good article btw, crisco.

MS17 was joking, but he points up a comparison that is obvious to fans & to the Cowboys coaches: one of them runs precise routes & comes back for the ball, the other runs willynilly or lackluster routes pretty much wherever he wants. You guess who is who.

Maybe in Seattle Sunday they will figure out that the fade route in the end zone when they're 1st & goal inside the 10 isn't the answer. The Seahawks lost one of their best defensive players on IR last wk, so Dallas looks to be having those chances. And there will be slants & skinny posts open aplenty to the TEs all day

jk ;)
Austin has been on the team what? 4 years? Roy... barely 1? Is it that suprising that the timing is not as on point?

I've been lurking here for a couple years. Long time cowboys fan. Lots to add, enjoy most of you guys' post. Figured I'd finally start adding my own thoughts.
Who are you guys rooting for in this Giants/Eagles game?...Eagles win things tighten up, but we have a shot at first.... giants win, they open a bigger lead, but we're in better position for wild card. I didn't even think we had a shot to win the division realistically at the start of the season, but things obviously change.
