1. Nate Livings

I admit that I wasnít entirely thrilled with the signing of veteran guard Nate Livings, but heís been magnificent at left guard for the Cowboys thus far in 2012. Through the seasonís first two weeks, Iíve tracked Livings as allowing just a single pressure and no sacks on quarterback Tony Romo.

The Cowboys have been really poor when running inside this season, but theyíre doing the best with Livings at the point-of-attack. The backs have averaged 4.07 YPC behind Livings. Meanwhile, Iíve recorded the offense totaling 3.22 YPC with right guard Mackenzy Bernadeau at the point-of-attack.

This brings me to the whole point of doing this study on Garrettís tendencies. Being that all of the NFL teams have a QCC or two, they are studying every game that he coached. They compile all of the data into tables like the ones I made. Any time you see 100% in any given situation, thatís asking for trouble. Why?
The first thing these QC guys do is look for 100%. They know they donít have to game plan for a pass in a specific down and distance scenario if Garrett has already shown them that he never passes in that certain situation. (Take note of Garrettís tendencies on 1st down!) Wow! For sake of space I havenít included every single situation, just the ones that a QC guy would look for.

So. Wait. Livings doesn't suck out loud like a reject from Cincy that he is?

But that goes against the tide of what everyone here promised would happen.

Go ahead and color me stupid, but I'm confused by what I'm reading in the first table in the Garrett article.

First Down

Quote:
Yards to Go % Rushing Plays, All % Passing Plays, All % Rushing Plays, Red Zone % Passing Plays, Red Zone % Rushing Plays, Goal to Go % Passing Plays, Goal to Go
1 40.00% 60.00% 40.00% 60.00% 40.00% 60.00%
2 100.00% 0.00% 100.00% 0.00% 100.00% 0.00%
3 100.00% 0.00% 100.00% 0.00% 100.00% 0.00%
8 100.00% 0.00% 100.00% 0.00% 100.00% 0.00%


I'm sure I'm just not reading this right. But, how would one only have 1, 2, 3, and 8 yards to go on First Down??

Those %s are useless without numbers of plays ran given for each category and with the situation taken into account.

Still interesting, but not that useful without some other factors.

I would like to see stats on the following:

- After a running play, frequency to run the ball a second time? Frequency to throw the football?

- After two consecutive running plays, frequency to run the ball a third time? Frequency to throw the fooball?

- And on and on and of course replace calling a running play with a passing play.

Yea it is alarming to have 100% in some scenarios. But I would need to know score, opponent, flow of the game (ie how was Romo doing vs how was the run doing) before I really put much into it. For all we may have only have a hand full of 1st and 8s from inside the redzone in that case it makes that 100% not look AS BAD.

Hell of a task to sit down and watch every play and track it like that tho.

The thing that bothers me is according to that data is how lopsided some of the numbers are - for example: 100% of the time that it was 3rd and goal, we passed the ball.

If Livings is that good I would expect a lot of running left behind Livings and Smith.

I will be more than happy to eat a big slice of humble pie should Livings prove to be a solid FA signing. I say prove to be, because whenever a criticism is levied at the Cowboys a certain faction will say they've only played 2 games. Give them time. Great results so far with Livings. Let's see how it goes the rest of the year.

How sad is it when averaging 4 YPC behing a guard becomes a "glowing review?" Could you imagine if RBs actually had a better than mediocre running average behind livings? Would he become the GOAT?

I rewatched Livings in the Seahawk game and he is our best player on the OL at this given time. I believe Smith will soon become comfortable in the LT role and we will have a very dominate left side of out line. I would really say if we are able to get a RG and a C we are set for a few years. Mainly C because Cook was beaten like a rag doll in this game.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think Sturm had such glowing reviews of Livings. I'm posting for phone so I don't have the article you posted before.
