Every year I make it my mission in life to come up with new and creative ways to show the sack stat is the most abused one out there. Sure, for some people it can be a reward for consistent play, but many others benefit from people caring too much about a small sample size, or, in some cases, players are punished because people don’t pay enough attention to what they actually do on the field.
Good article. Too much weight is put on sacks in my opinion and this article does a good job of making a case for that. Hopefully it sparks a good debate and convinces people to look past that one stat.The information is there. You don’t need to be a slave to the sack stat anymore and can instead appreciate players for more than what they do on 2% of plays.
