PFF: Alex Smith's 2017 improvement



https://www.profootballfocus.com/new...17-improvement

Quote:
His overall PFF grade is currently 89.0, and heís our second-highest graded quarterback through five games behind only Tom Brady. Smith has never had an overall ranking higher than 10th over a season before this year.

Smith definitively has been more aggressive across the board this season however. He hasnít become a gunslinger overnight, but he has significantly increased the frequency with which he goes deep, which had been a big cap on his play to date. In 2016, Smith went deep on just 9.4 percent of his passes, which was tied for 31st in the league, ahead of only Sam Bradford and the disastrous Minnesota Vikings offensive line, and Colin Kaepernick.

This season his frequency has increased enough to rank 14th, ahead of Drew Brees, Matt Ryan, Cam Newton and Aaron Rodgers through five weeks. In raw number terms, only ten quarterbacks have attempted more than the 19 deep passes that Smith has attempted so far this season.

In addition to simply going deep more often, Smith has been deadly accurate on these more aggressive passes. His passer rating on the deep ball is 142.0, the highest mark in the league, and his adjusted completion percentage is 57.9, also the best mark in football, just ahead of Tom Brady.

He already has 440 yards and three touchdowns from deep passing attempts in 2017, while a year ago he scored just twice on deep passes and gained 521 yards in total on those attempts.

He's playing well, no doubt, but a lot of his recent success can be attributed to his legs- making throws down field, moving the chains and buying more time outside of the pocket.

Will he be able to maintain when a team focuses on keeping him contained in the pocket?

Even in the pocket he's taking chances

I think he reflected on a lot of film last year and the team decided to improve in the scramble drill. For Smith the improvement was to keep his eyes up and the ball ready to throw if he doesn't have a clear path to the 1st down line and/or isn't being closely pursued. For the receivers it's to keep working to get open regardless of where you are on the field and run towards the side that Smith is scrambling to.

We've seen Wilson do it, Conley, and West now. We didn't really see that in years past at all.

3rd and 14. Last years smith would hit a check down for 5 yards. This year he chucks it 39 Yards to Hill for a completion. You sure this isn’t Rodgers is disguise?

and all the same, if being contained in the pocket.. would that then not suggest (mostly) that rushers are not pinning ears back for him? That they are engaing OL, but not gunning hard for him? If so, then by all means, let him get cozy in the pocket and go through progressions.

Your recent appreciation and acknowledge of Alex Smith's success is really scaring the shit out of me!

Feels like Pigs are Flying and Hell has Frozen Over at the same time.
