Pryor Raiders OffenseAfter just about every Raiders (and 49ers) game, I make it a point to obsess over Pro Football Focus‘ (PFF) game charting stats. I find it endlessly interesting to see the numbers that don’t appear in the box score, such as how many yards credited to the quarterback occurred while the ball was in the air and how many drops a given receiver has. I often use these stats to jump to conclusions — mostly wild ones — but that’s not the purpose of these posts. No, what is offered here are unadulterated stats. Do with them what you will.

It’s worth noting, however, that PFF graded Andre Gurode, Brice Butler, Willie Smith, Nick Casa and John Wetzel as the Raiders’ top offensive performance. David Ausberry, Jamize Olawale, Andrew Robiskie, Richard Gordon, Rashad Jennings and Tony Bergstrom rated out as the worst. Also, the best quarterback from Friday night was Matt McGloin — again, according to PFF.

The following are only the offensive stats. I’ll provide the defensive stats in a later post.

Offense:

  • Matt Flynn dropped back to pass seven times, attempting five passes and completing four of them for 37 yards. Only eight of those yards came in the air — 21.6% of his total yards.

    • Flynn was pressured once, which he took for a sack/fumble.
