    One would think that if a QB had more time, or took more time, to throw the ball, he would perform better.

    This doesn't seem to be the case, however.

    Here are the data pertaining to this for this season (from PFF):

    So what we see here is that the average QB rating in the NFL this year on throws made in 2.5 seconds or less is 93.71, whereas the average QB rating on throws made in 2.6 seconds or more is just a shade under 83, more than 10 points less.

    What we also see is that each of the four "time" variables (to throw, to attempt, to sack, and to scramble) are negatively correlated with QB rating on throws made in 2.6 seconds or more, meaning that the more time QBs have in that regard, the lower their QB ratings are. These correlations are in the 20s and 30s, so they're not very strong, but they're negative nonetheless, which illustrates the inverse, and possibly counterintuitive, relationship.

    Not everything is black and white. The numbers change based on play calls, coverages, etc. PFF does offer some nice statistical data but a lot of what they put out is worthless babble. After all it is PFF that ranks the entire Dolphins defense 4th based on individual play.

    Those are subjective grades, however, not objective data like those above.

    What we have above is a fairly dramatic difference in QB rating on the basis of whether QBs take (or are given) a certain amount of time, which one would assume is reliable data as long as the people collecting it are using their stopwatches appropriately. There is no human error possible other than that.

    so what we see here is that the avg qb rating is higher when the primary is open vs when he is not

    Entirely possible as an explanation, and a good one I think. :up:

    Also, I took the difference between the two QB ratings (for throws made before 2.6 seconds, and for throws made in 2.6 seconds or more) and correlated it with the percentage of dropbacks in which these QBs have been pressured. That correlation is nil (-0.03), which lends credence to your explanation.

    One would assume a pass that comes out quick is going to an open primary receiver more often than not, which is a higher percentage pass. As they have more time and go through more reads the chances of them finding someone when their primary read isn't open probably drops a bit. On top of that you're going to need more time for deeper routes to open up, so don't know what these numbers show us at all.

    I think what they might show us is sort of an extension of what you said, that it's more important to call plays that can get a primary receiver open quickly, and then execute those plays well (both the QB and the receiver), than it is to hold blocks longer, move in the pocket, and/or move through one's progression better.

    Of course if that primary receiver isn't open for whatever reason, then obviously those other variables become more important, but the difference in QB rating here says that you get a whole lot more bang for your buck by getting that primary receiver open quickly and getting the ball to him effectively than by doing those other things well.

    What you could take from this in watching games is that as soon as the QB comes off his first target during a play, you can put money on the idea that the play probably isn't going to be as successful as it would be if he were able to hit that target quickly. There are exceptions, of course, but the data show that over the long haul, the quick-hitters are more productive.

    This really is getting old and the last comment I have is it's ridiculous to think having more time to throw may be over rated. There are times that a QB has all day in the pocket and is simply waiting for something to open up down field. You can spin this in any direction your agenda dictates but for me and most folks with common sense, a QB trying to make a play down field is trying to put his team in a better position for success. The notion that having to much time may be over rated is ludicrous at best. I'm out.

    Is it not possible that those plays are typically less productive than the quick-hitters?

    It's possible that having more time may not be bad in itself (although plays such as those may usually end more poorly), but that taking more time is bad, which is why I'm questioning both things here, "taking" time, and "having" time.

    That said, however, you're of course free to participate in the discussion as much as you'd like. :)

    Cant take time if you dont have it. Ask anyone who has ever played defense at any level how hard it is to cover a receiver for more than 3 seconds. Im sure those.numbers include scrambles, broken plays, throw aways etc... let any nfl caliber qb stand tall in a pocket for more than three seconds and your defense is getting torn up in chunks

    If you ask any QB if he would like more time or less I would suspect he would say more. More is better. Do I need to get a bunch of kids sitting semicircle to tell you that.

    I will say any qb should have more than 3 seconds to throw the ball. Our pass protection is among the worst i the league and no special stat can disprove that

    Another quality thread of trying to get people thinking one way by spouting out a bunch of **** and presenting it as some kind of ingenuous objective stat.

    What's interesting, however, is that throws that occur after a longer period of time after the snap are associated with such a lower QB rating. One would think that a QB, if given time, would have a better QB rating, even if the primary receiver isn't open on the play. However, what seems to be the case is that the extra time to throw creates a much poorer outcome with regard to QB rating than does having an open target earlier in the play.

    In other words, one would think time drives the bus on QB rating in this regard (i.e., QBs perform better when they have more time to throw), but what the data suggest on the other hand, IMO, is what you said, that an open target earlier in the play does a hell of a lot more than time for a QB's performance.

    That is an interesting finding IMO, and it flies in the face of some of the intuitions I've seen here that sound something like, "I bet Ryan Tannehill's QB rating is a lot better when he has [or takes] more time to throw." In fact Tanenhill's QB rating is six points lower on throws he's made at 2.6 seconds after the snap and beyond, which is no different from what happens across the league, for almost all QBs.

    I think a lot of it has to do with short passes being more likely caught, than longer passes....

    So lets recap ....

    Too much time to throw is worse than not enough time to throw.

    Throwing in 2.6 seconds because you're about to get mugged is more desirable than throwing in 2.7 seconds because your primary receiver is open.

    Ok got it.

    It's not about more or less time, it's about the appropriate amount of time. Unfortunately, you'll never be able to capture that statistically. If a play is designed to need 3 seconds for a WR to get open, and you only get 2.5 seconds, there's no way that you'll be more effective with the lessor.

    There's so many variables which skew these statistics. More time usually means deeper routes, which usually have a lower sucess rate than quick routes/screens/etc. Also, more time could mean great coverage, which means a QB will have to force the ball, thus the lower QBR.

    A reasonable conclusion would be that longer developing plays are typically less efficient than quick plays. Regardless, QBs still perform better when given the appropriate amount of time to complete the play without pressure.

    Taking more time to throw the football is overrated. Having more time to throw the football is not overrated.

    I wanted to further add that amount of arbitrary time to throw does not measure the quality of the read, quality of protection and how those 2 elements combine to make the correct read, correct decision, correct throw and remain upright.

    For example, a QB can have a quick trigger for many reasons: bad protection, tendency to lock on to 1 WR, etc. But those stats do not show you the difference between a QB who thows the ball at xx seconds standing still with a clean pocket with open lanes vs. the QB who had to dance in the pocket with defenders falling all around him as he avoids a sack with clogged throwing lanes to complete a pass.

    The quality of protection is just as important as the amount time provided by protection.

    One would think. However, the percentage of dropbacks in which these QBs are pressured isn't correlated with the difference in their QB ratings for throws made in 2.5 seconds or less, and throws made in 2.6 seconds or more.

    In other words, it isn't pressure that makes a QB's rating so much lower on throws made after 2.5 seconds. It looks as if that difference in QB rating isn't a function of pressure. Something else is going on during pass plays that last beyond 2.5 seconds that make QBs perform poorer during them.

    We could suspect that it's the case that a lower-percentage (i.e., downfield) target is involved, though the difference in the QB rating would suggest those plays are rarely successful, since a successful downfield play has more of a positive effect on a QB's rating than a successful shorter-yardage play. Something on those plays would have to outweigh the effect on QB rating produced by successful downfield plays, and that something, which isn't pressure, would have to be pretty weighty.

    This is TRUE and not reflected in the stats! Tom Brady became Tom Brady because he had all day back there to do his taxes, take a shower and let his plays develop. But if the play called for a quick slant, he could execute.

    Tom Brady has had one of the most consistent OLs -- which allows him not to have a clock in his head. He knows that if the situation calls for it, he has the TIME even for a slant.

    Tanny didn't even have that on critical plays. Entire OL blown up in his face at times, taking away passing lane and giving nill reaction time.

    I counted 6-8 seconds multiple times for Brady and Brees in their game. And on some of those plays, even with all those seconds, the QB was never touched. You tellin' me that doesn't have an effect on a QB? The games where Brady gets consistently touched in 3 or 3.2 seconds he gets happy feet, a clock in his head... and he's supposedly the best QB in the NFL -- or among the best. Tanny has NEVER had the benefit of a highly consistent, good OL. Never.

    It's amazing -- Brady and Brees can take 6-8 seconds and Tanny can take 3-4, and guys on FH do two things: 1. They credit the OLs of NE and NO, and then 2. They blame Tanny for not getting the ball out sooner. So contradictory.

    Shouright, would it be possible for you to add Total Yards, and Yards Per Attempt to the chart? I'm curious to see what, if any correlation there is between those stats and having time.

    I can sure give it a shot when I have time later his evening. Are you aware, however, that those are components of QB rating? I assume you are. Just checking. :)

    Yes, I'm aware. :) I was just curious to see them isolated. I have no ulterior motive, I just thought it would be interesting. As you no doubt are aware, sometimes you can glean a different perspective on things when isolating them as opposed to looking at a statistic which is designed to create a standard or overall number.

    those grades do not reflect first contact, or contact after a throw, or contact during the dropback.

    What I think is very interesting about these numbers is that Tannehill is being sacked on average after 3.5s while the league average is 3.9. When a QB is getting sacked that much the obvious concern is he's holding the ball too long, but it's clearly not the case.

    Edit: To somewhat second what ck said above, the other numbers seem irrelevant to me.
