Hasselbeck's Soon To Be Improved Passer Rating.
Here's the stats guys:
Robinson - 67 targets, 10 drops
Jackson - 156 targets, 11 drops
Engram - 53 targets, 2 drops
Total - 276 targets, 23 drops
Looking at these numbers, it is clear that percentage wise, the biggest culprits for dropping passes last season were KDrop and DJack. Engram only rarely dropped passes, (unfortunately his second dropped pass came at the worst possible time, but that's an aside), these stats show that approx 45% of our drops came from a guy who got thrown about 22% of the passes.
If this isn't what is meant by the term "addition by subtraction" I don't know what is.
Perhaps more importantly, Robinson, in a sense, will now be replaced by two guys with terific hands, Jurivicius and Pathon.
Bottom line, Hasselbeck may be on the verge of having his career high passer percentage, and we will finally, once and for all find out whether or not the specualtion that, Hasselbeck would be a great QB if it weren't for all the dropped passes is true.
