It's amazing what you can glean from one extended glance down through the numbers on a single page. Behold, some of the more interesting statistical stories so far in the NFL season.
When will Phillip Rivers, the Chargers QB, start to come into conversations alongside Brady, Brees and Manning? His ’09 stats so far? Just 3583 yds, 22 tds. Ho hum. With just 5 more completions on the season, Rivers has thrown for 600 yards more than the Broncos Kyle Orton. I’ll let you figure that (Noodle arm! Noodle arm!) one out for yourselves.
In 78 less pass attempts, Tampa Bay’s rookie Josh Freeman, has thrown one less Touchdown (7) than Carolina’s Jake Delhomme (8).
Rashard Mendenhall of the Steelers has pretty quietly gobbled up 940 yards in only 194 carries. Pretty close to 5 yards a carry (4.8). He’s a rookie. He was also benched for part of the early section of the season.
For all his guff, Ochocinco is having a pretty solid season, to say the least. 65 rec, 937 yds, 7 tds
Matt Forte is rushing for 3.4 yards a carry. Ouch. Ray Rice, Baltimore’s classy rookie? Just 5.3 yards a carry.
Stephen Jackson of the woefully inept Rams has produced a minor miracle by rushing for 1237 yards, but still has only 4 trips to the end zone to show for his efforts.
Tom Brady will break 4,000 yards this season (3830 so far)
