  1. Though it is way early into his career, I thought this was still interesting... Impact Play Ratio: Cam Newton (5.62) 97 of 545 Nick Marshall (6.00) 143 of 858 Robby Ashford (6.14) 22 of 135 Dameyune Craig (6.52) 181 of 1181 Bo Nix (7.90) 167 of 1320 No doubt he is not polished yet, but this is his first year playing at the collegiate level. He certainly needs the right system built around his strengths, and under the right offensive coach, could continue to improve. His current ratio of an impact play every 6.1 touches is impressive considering the circumstances he has been given.
  2. Knowing where the targets were made on the field provides an actual explanation. Bo Nix completed about 44% of his passes beyond 20 yards of the LOS and Finley completed 31 percent. There is no indication that JJ had any "drop" issues. He was utilized in the deep passing game, so the completion percentage explains why he caught around 51 percent of his targeted passes. Cam Newton who was one of the top passers in the country in terms of efficiency, completed 44 percent of his pass attempts beyond 20-yards of the LOS.
  3. His ratio for impact plays was better than Darvin Adams who was the best in school history. Should he double his targets this year, it could make a huge difference on offense. Anything under 1 out of 3 is really good.
  4. Though he only caught 19 passes last season, Ja'Varrius Johnson produced ten plays of 15+ yards. Johnson's 2021 season was limited due to injury, but he was targeted 37 times, with 65 percent occurring during the final five games of the season. Johnson was moved around the field to isolate him on a single defender, who Johnson could exploit. He generated big plays from short passes and took the top off opposing defenses on the deep ball. https://youtu.be/bZB8LNP5x2w
  5. I thought the same as I put the feature together.
  6. I always felt that Jarrett Stidham never received enough credit for his performance on the field as an Auburn Tiger. I believe it is likely due to the 8-5 record in his final season. Diving into the numbers, Auburn ran for at least 140-yards only 16 times during Stidham's 27 starts at quarterback and the Tigers went 15-1 in those games and 3-8 during the remaining games. Among Auburn QB's with at least 300 career pass attempts, Jarrett Stidham was the 3rd most efficient quarterback and possessed the best TD to INT ratio. In two seasons, he amassed over 6000 yards of total offense and 42 TD's. He was directly involved in 141 impact plays or plays of 15+ yards. https://youtu.be/Zy3bimHJZAs

  8. This is the first of a 5-part series on Auburn's top-5 run offenses. Each team was ranked on yards rushing per game, yards per attempt, and TD ratio. Strength of schedule was also a factor. https://youtu.be/_bVZ6YAtv0U
  9. Parting words... * Thanks for the interest in the thread. * I respect all opinions. As for Bo Nix. No doubt he has his own issues to correct but no more than other individuals on the offense. I realize he will be faulted as an individual more than any other individual on offense because of his position. I came on this board today just to shed some light on some of the surrounding struggles on offense. I posted data to support my opinion. I would think that it would be common sense that any quarterback or coach would like to have a consistent running game. No, Nix is not good enough to carry the offense by himself. Never was and likely never will be. This doesn't mean he cannot be successful. Again, his performance on the field has been at its best with a supporting running game. As for his ceiling, I won't pretend to know because of past experiences with other QB's that were written off by Auburn fans, only to close out their careers in strong fashion. (Stan White, Reggie Slack, Ben Leard, Jason Campbell and Chris Todd). I do fear that he will never have the supporting cast I would like to see, just to see what his personal ceiling might be. As always... hope the season ends well and ... War Eagle!
  10. Show me all the threads that singled out an OL or WR by name in the title.
  11. Nothing wrong with voicing an opinion because some of the complaints are just not true. Though Nix is 1/4 the problem, there are three times as many complaints about Nix than the OL or WR’s. I understand that fans will credit the QB too much and fault him too much but it is still wrong.
  12. Records from 2016-2020 when attempting at least 26 passes, running under 140 and allowing at least 21 points. Alabama 4-1 Arkansas 0-21 Auburn 1-14 Florida 3-14 Georgia 3-6 Kentucky 0-6 LSU 2-6 Miss State 2-13 Missouri 1-15 Ole Miss 4-12 South Carolina 2-22 Tennessee 5-8 TAMU 3-15 Vanderbilt 1-19 15 percent win percentage from 2016-2020
  13. IMO, Steve Spurrier's pass offense was the best pure pass offense I have seen in the SEC. We see lots of screens today that jack up the completion percentage. Spurrier's pass offense was more vertical and deadly. Applying the same standards I outlined previously, Florida under Spurrier was 13-19-1 when they attempted at least 26 passes, ran for less than 140 and the opposition scored at least 21 points. I thought Tuberville was crazy when he said the key to beating Florida in 2001 was to take away the run. He was right... forced the Gators into 4 picks that night in a huge Auburn upset. Even Spurrier commented on the need to have a running game consistent enough to slow down the pass rush. Florida was deadly with their draw plays.
