2006 Scoreability Index

Cold, Hard Football Facts for Jan 02, 2007



(The Scoreability Index is a "Quality Stat" because it has a direct correlation to winning football games. Read more about this team-wide measure of scoring efficiency here.)
 
Pity poor Oakland. The Raiders will not only go down as one of the most inept offenses in modern NFL history, scoring just 10.5 PPG and averaging a dreadful 4.4 yards everytime they dropped back to pass, they also wasted a lot of effort this season moving the ball up and down the field for no reason.
 
Oakland needed to generate 23.45 yards to score a single point this season. That's more than twice the effort expended by division rival San Diego, which needed just 11.87 yards to score a single point.
 
To put it in more concrete football terms, the Chargers scored one touchdown for every 71 yards of offense they generated. The Raiders scored one touchdown for every 140 yards of offense they generated.
 
As a result, one team has the best record in football. The other team has the worst record in football.
 
Efficiency is everything in the NFL, and Oakland this year scored with the same efficiency as the tuba player in your high school band.
 
Remember, the Scoreability Index is a team-wide measurement, not just a measurement of offensive efficiency. It takes into account a variety of factors, such as the proficiency of defense and special teams, red zone defense and turnover differential.
