Exclamation Tips for Evaluating players during the season

Some people have had some questions on inseason player evaluation and the best way to go about it. BBCF has an interesting feature that many people don't use as much as they should. After each game, you get two emails from your coordinators: Offensive Post-Game Report and Defensive Post-Game Report. These are essentially film studies done by your coordinators into the players on their side of the ball. In this report, you will see a ton of individual information that you might not have otherwise determined just by the play-by-play and game log. Here's a summary of that data and what it means (these stats are in addition the normal stats like receptions/rushes, yards, TD, INT, sacks, ...):

QB -
GP (Great Pass): tight window throw made to a receiver that was completed.
BP (Bad Pass): Poor throw that missed an open receiver.

RB/rushing QB -
CreateR (Created Run): positive run by the back/QB when no hole was there.
MissH (Missed Hole): running lane was there and the back/QB missed it.

WR/TE/RB -
GrtC (Great Catch): poor throw or low percentage chance but the receiver still caught it.
BadR (Bad Route): Bad route by the receiver that resulted in an incompletion or interception.
YAC (Yards after contact): Yards gained by the receiver after he was first hit.

OL/TE -
RB (Key run block): A great block by the player that helped create a large running gain.
Pan (Pancake block): A great pass block that pancaked the rusher.
SA (sacks allowed): sack allowed by the player.
False (False start): False start by the player.
Miss (Missed block): Missed block attempt by the player.
Hold (Holding call): Holding penalty called against the player.

DE/DT -
Stf (run stuff): When the DL stuffs a running play for a loss.
DP (deflected pass): When the DL gets his hand up and deflects a pass by the QB
Hur (QB hurry): A QB hurry by the DL that resulted in a rushed attempt by the QB
MT (missed tackle): Missed tackle by the DL
OutP (Out of Position error): The DL was out of position on a play. Could be an option run, sweep, screen pass, etc where the DL lost contain or missed an assignment.

ILB/OLB -
Stf (run stuff): When the LB stuffs a running play for a loss.
PD (pass defensed): While in coverage or zone, when a LB breaks up a pass.
MT (missed tackle): Missed tackle by the LB.
BPA (big play allowed): Occurs when the LB is responsible for a gain of 20 yards or more.
OutP (Out of Position error): Like with the DL, this time the LB was out of position on a play.

DB -
PD (pass defensed): While in coverage or zone, when a DB breaks up a pass.
MT (missed tackle): Missed tackle by the DB.
BPA (big play allowed): Occurs when the DB is responsible for a gain of 20 yards or more.
OutP (Out of Position error): The DB was out of position on a play. This could be in zone or man coverage and usually results in a blown coverage for the team.

These can really give you insight into how an individual player is performing. You can also now go to the "Team Stats" option under roster in this version and see the season totals for each of these stats (this was an earlier request). As an example, I was trying to determine which guard to play in the conference championship between George Ashley (3.0/4.5) and Robert Wilson (3.0/5.0) as both were injured during the season and split duty. Both were younger players and had similar main stats: Ashley had 4 pancakes, 1 sack allowed and 3 false starts, Wilson had 3 pancakes, 2 sacks allowed and 1 false start. But, when I looked at missed block opportunities, key run blocks and holding calls, Ashley looked much better. He had 7 key run blocks, 0 holding calls and 2 missed block opportunities. Wilson, however, had just 1 key run block, 1 holding call and 14! missed block opportunities.

Oh, yes, I frequently use this a lot. I use it also to figure out what my players are best at. For example, if I play two option teams and my DT has 5 Out of Position, but has none when I play two regular teams, then I realize he is not very agile and can adjust his playing time accordingly

Great observation. Same goes with OL. If you have a guard with a ton of key run blocks, but he struggles with sacks and holding calls - you can use him more with a run-heavy gameplan.
