  • Eli Manning leading the league in DYAR

    DYAR is a stat footballoutsiders.com made up to show the positive or negative impact of a player on their team over time. It takes into to account league averages and plays are assigned a point value based on their importance. I'm not going to explain the whole statistic here, they have a link on their website, but it's an interesting stat that may be the best way to measure how much a player helps his team win or loss. Eli Manning is currently leading the league in the stat which means according to football outsiders he's been the most effective QB in the NFL through 5 weeks at helping his team win. I just thought you guys would find this interesting.

      It's still early, but it looks like a three horse race between Eli, Matt Ryan, and Ben right now.

        It will take 5000+ yards 35+ Tds, & a 65+ completion % for eli to even be considered over the poster boys of the NFL. Eli winning the league MVP is a pipe dream

            His numbers will most likely go down as the season progresses. Bad weather and tough schedule will do that, even to the best QB's.

              They make a new stat every day it seems... each more difficult to understand than the last.

                  I honestly think Eli has become somewhat of a poster boy for the NFL, like it or not. I think he'll get fair treatment in an MVP race, the media has been in love with Eli since last year. They'd definitely rather give it to clean cut Eli than Ben.

                  And I think 5000+ yards, 35+ Tds, a 65%+ completion percentage, and a 100+ QB rating is what it's gonna take with the numbers QBs are putting up now a days. Not saying that Eli can't or won't achieve those numbers.

                  This stat really isn't hard to understand and once you do take the time to understand it I find it far more telling than about any other empty stat thrown out there. It's basically situations are given value and averages, if a player performs above the average, he gains points, if he performs below it, points are subtracted. It's then just measured over time to see how effective the player is throughout the course of a season.

                      yup. and so far, the usual "poster boys" havent had mvp like seasons up to the 1/4 at all...rodgers, brees, arent having as good as seasons as eli at all. guess up to this point, competition will be between eli, ryan, brady, and maybe ben and peyton...then again guys like aryian foster could end the streak of mvp being qbs...
                      and i wasnt really serious with the "mvp mvp mvp" chant i know its way too early. the stat tho just signifies to me who the mvp would be bc of the metrics it measures, and technically eli is leading the nfl in it so...

                          Yes it does, one of my favorite bands of all time.

                            This simply isn't true. There's overwhelming support throughout the national media for Eli Manning, especially after last year, though it was going on while he was playing well last year. Skip Bayless is one of the only morons that gets national air time that I see saying incredibly inaccurate things about Eli Manning.

                              The stats are part of the consideration. But ultimately, it tends to be (but not always) awarded to the QB on the team with the best record...

                              If he leads us to 13-3 or something he could seriously win it. The respect is (finally) there now.
