CN: KC Joyner on vertical passes. This is GOOD ANALYSIS.

4
K.C.: I'm looking at this, and I'm going to do this on a team-by-team basis. Let's put it this way -- is it a surprise that the Cowboys ranked 2nd in vertical yards per attempt? CN: That's not too big of a surprise. They have "matchup busters" as you've called them, in Witten and Austin. K.C.: It could be that Romo only throws the vertical when it's there, and goes somewhere if it's not absolutely open. I have to think there's a balance there. Think Drew Brees. He's got a real gunslinger mentality, more than Romo did last year. Vertical yards per attempt is great, but look -- Dallas had 165 vertical pass attempts as a team last year. New Orleans had 226. Now Dallas is 13.2 yards per attempt, which is slightly better than New Orleans' 12.9. But would you have have the better YPA on fewer passes or the 61 more attempts? read the whole thing. this is what good analysis looks like.
