Re: Football Outsiders: State of the Texans
If you want to talk straight YAC in full year only, you can do that as well.
Schaub didn't benefit from that as much as some other QBs like Brady, Stafford, and perhaps Brees, too.
No matter how you slice it, Brady is still the king of YaC benificiary.
I still don't see how you can disregard numbers from a starting QB that play 10-11 games in certain year. The fact that a QB got injured and wasn't able to finish a year has no bearing on whether he benefits from YAC or that his AY per attempt is meaningless.
You can say that with back-up QBs, or those who played something like less than half the year, I would agree to that.
