NFL Quarterback Kryptonite – QB Beginning Biggest Weaknesses for All 32 of 2020


Despite everything we’ve seen so far this season of Russell Wilson, no NFL quarterback is perfect (though Wilson seems quite close to it). Everyone has a weakness or problem area – and many have more than one. Whether its accuracy, throwing downfield, taking too many sacks or anything else, something stands out for all 32 starts.

Thanks to advanced Pro Football Focus data, we are able to recognize the need for improvement in those areas. From PFF play-by-play grading and everything else at our disposal, from our ball-charting and QB accuracy numbers to a clean pocket to perform, we made the biggest of every quarter across the NFL starting in 2020 Weakness identified.

greatest weakness: High volume games

Here is one that should be put to the test this season. Coming in 2020, Prescott played in 28 “high-volume” games – games in which a quarterback falls back 40 or more times – and he achieved a PFF grade of at least 80.0 only once in those. , 35th out of 36 quarterbacks. With at least 10 such games. This season, Prescott has two 80.0-plus grades in three high-volume games so far, so there may be a change in Dallas. That said, from 2016 to 2019, the Dallas signal-caller fared better in games where he wasn’t asked to do as much, and he always separated him from other top quarterbacks around the league.


greatest weakness: Turnover-worthy plays

Pennant gets Jones in trouble for making big throws under pressure, as he has the third-highest percentage of league-turnover-worthy plays since the start of 2019, trailing only Jemis Winston and Kyle Allen. Jones is ready to take a downfield shot even when hit, and this leads to a wide range of great throws and easy interception opportunities. He should also be better at protecting the ball in the pocket, as he has a lot of fumbles yet – and not just the inevitable, strip-sack variety.
