    NFL reporter: CFL has no downfield passing its boring

    Respected NFL and New England Patriots reporter Ben Volin had a sizzling hot take about the CFL from one game hes attended.


    Theres no downfield passing. Its boring.

    Volin wrote in a piece about the Alliance of American Football failing. The CFL backers quickly set out to correct Mr. Volin.

    Lets see what the data shows. The NFL had two 5,000-yard passers in 2018 versus the CFLs four. Mike Reilly (9.0) and Jeremiah Masoli (9.1) both averaged nine yards or better per pass attempt. Meanwhile Patrick Mahomes (8.8) and Ben Roesthlisberger (7.6) each fell under nine.

    Reilly led the CFL with 5,562 yards in 2018 due in large part to pushing the ball down the field, completing a league-high 55 passes for 20 or more yards, 19 of them for touchdowns including a 101-yard strike.
    Here's some, all from 2018 seasons:

    Avg depth of target
    NFL - 8.1
    CFL - 10,0

    Adj Net yards per attempt
    NFL - 6.3
    CFL - 6.8

    Pass att/team/game
    NFL: 34.5
    CFL: 33

    Pass TD/game
    NFL: 3.3
    CFL: 2.6

    % of plays that were passes:
    NFL: 57%
    CFL: 63%

    Well it’s stupid to base any conclusions off of one game. There are NFL games that are boring too.

    Absolutely no need to defend the CFL imho. It's definitely a passing league and much more necessarily wide open offensively. The guy has no clue. Kind of sad one game is a basis for opinion. Modern world I guess.
    • "Dems have no achomlishments" - The President of the United States of America, that some people elected and defend. He says he's a stable genius by the way and some people still think so.


    Is Mr. Pink the one to bring me down ? Is Peterman on an NFL roster in 2019 ? What avatar do I choose for Mr. Pink ? Stay tuned, it's hugely !
