Steelers 2011 Passing & Rushing Stats By Formation Through Week 5

Below are the formation rushing and passing stats from the week 5 game against the Tennessee Titans along with the year to date stats through the first 5 games of the 2011 season. One word of caution. The formations are different from the actual personnel on the field as my game charters will list an h-back player at the snap as a running back. This would mean that players like Hines Ward, David Johnson or Heath Miller for example were charted formation wise as being a running back as this gives you a better picture of the formation actually used on a play. If you want to look at the actual personnel used on a specific play, I suggest you look at the weekly offensive participation charts that show where all players are lined up on all non-penalty plays. The charting data is likely around 99% accurate as we are prone to make mistakes, but the stats below certainly give you a better picture. The fake punt was not included below.

Looking at the year to date stats, the 1RB 3TE 1WR rushing stats are inflated thanks to the long run this past week by Jonathan Dwyer. 882 of the 1391 passing yards have come out of the 1RB 0TE 4WR and 1RB 1TE 3WR formations which is not surprising. 3 interceptions, 5 sacks and 4 scrambles have come out of empty backfield formations on 55 drop backs, however those formations have produced 3 passing touchdowns and 245 yards passing on 46 attempts for a not so stellar 5.3 YPA.
