    What's some stats that you love, but that nobody ever really tracks/talks about?

    For me, I am huge on defense. I have always been a defensive guy, and couldn't be more excited that we actually are fielding a defense, again. I always track this one stat and NOBODY ever really looks at or picks up on for defenses. I'd given up on tracking it the past few years, but decided to start back this year, cause I believed in our D and hope we can pull it off.

    Everyone tracks # of sacks got by a D or # of sacks allowed by an Oline. But I track which defenses have had a sack in EVERY game of the year. It's easy to get against a crappy Oline and rack up a ton of sacks in a game and smear the statline. I like to see how consistent a defense is. Probably isn't an important stat. But last time we had a serious playoff run (which I define as at least 1 playoff win), was McNair's MVP year ... we were the only team in the league with at least 1 sack in every game of the year.

    This year, there are 23 teams with at least 1 sack in every game:
    Ravens
    Broncos
    Panthers
    Seahawks
    Raiders
    Colts
    Lions
    Browns
    Bears
    Chiefs
    Jags
    Bucs
    Jets
    Saints
    Titans
    Rams
    49ers
    Packers
    Cowboys
    Eagles
    Skins
    Texans
    Chargers




    So, what some of the obscure (and probably meaningless) stats that you love to track/hear about?

    Peyton Manning?

    Not sure I'm understanding. hahaha Manning is a person, not a stat. I guess you can look at his regular-season pass yards each week? But what are you wanting on the list? And on what list?

    I like looking at the scoring defensive stat and 3rd down conversion stat (from a defensive perspective). Those often show how the defense overcomes adversity and keeps points off the board or stalls drives. We have a defense that is playing really good on 3rd down right now.

    Well for me there is one stat that is tracked but not accurately. And thats Drops.

    For some reason you can touch a ball but it not be recorded a drop unless you "receive" the ball in. The Titans OC Loggains considers a drop anything you touch but dont catch, and thats my view on what is/isnt a drop. If NFL receivers touch the ball, they should be able to catch it, anything less should be a drop.

    But thats not how it is for some reason. Stat trackers around seem to accept a WR blowing catches so long as they never really obtain possession.
