Pass distribution

Posted by cuorange on November 19, 2009

Here’s a look at where the passes are going. FYI – this information comes from the official play by play transcripts on clemsontigers.com. I know what you’re thinking – I, too thought we had more than 12 drops, but that is what the official stats say. Also, there were no drops listed for the Maryland game. I guess Maryland can’t afford that level of statistician.

Player Thrown To Complete Pct Yards TDs 1st Downs Drops
B. Ford 1 1 100.00 4 0 0 0
K. Johnson 1 1 100.00 11 0 1 0
M. Palmer 33 27 81.82 303 3 21 1
J. Harper 10 8 80.00 38 0 1 0
C.J. Spiller 36 24 66.67 382 4 10 0
C. Diehl 3 2 66.67 20 0 2 0
A. Ellington 14 9 64.29 48 0 4 0
X. Dye 19 12 63.16 205 3 10 1
T. Ashe 20 11 55.00 124 0 7 0
R. Taylor 11 6 54.55 34 0 1 1
J. Ford 76 39 51.32 548 4 20 5
M. Jones 14 7 50.00 156 1 5 1
D. Barry 2 1 50.00 2 1 0 0
D. Allen 22 8 36.36 80 2 5 3
B. Clear 10 3 30.00 31 0 1 0
J. Brown 9 2 22.22 24 1 1 0
Interceptions 10
Totals 291 161 55.33 2010 19 89 12

Couple things this shows to me – 1) Michael Palmer is money. 82% of the passes thrown to him are complete. 78% of his catches are for first downs. 1 drop. 2) Dye has stepped up over the last two games and we need that to continue as the evidence is showing that he is getting open and catching the ball (63% completion rate) and has 10 first downs on 12 catches. He looks to be emerging as the second threat at WR with an occasional hand from Ashe. Marquan Jones has disappeared, playing only 1 play against FSU and 6 against N.C. State, while Ashe played 33 and 23 snaps in those games respectively.
