Jason Campbell leads the league in roughing the passer penalties

Oakland Raiders v Kansas City Chiefs Getty Images

Michael Vick raised the question this week about whether referees protect certain quarterbacks more than others. It turns out that the quarterback who draws roughing the passer penalties most frequently is not a superstar.

Raiders quarterback Jason Campbell has drawn roughing the passer penalties at a higher rate than any other quarterback in the NFL since the start of the 2010 season, according to former head of officiating Mike Pereira, who posted the data at FOXSports.com.

Yes, Al Davis, the officials are protecting your quarterback more than any other.

Or maybe not. Actually, the truth is that the data about roughing the passer penalties doesn’t tell us much about which quarterbacks are being protected and which ones are not — or if NFL officials actually “protect” any quarterbacks more than any others. The fact that Campbell draws a roughing the passer penalty 1.46 times for every 100 passes while Tom Brady draws a roughing the passer penalty 0.16 times for every 100 passes probably means that Brady is getting the ball away before the defense even gets close to him, while Campbell is frequently throwing under intense pressure. It would be much more useful to analyze penalties per hit than penalties per pass.

But the data is interesting nonetheless. After Campbell, the quarterbacks who draw the most roughing the passer penalties are Jay Cutler, Colt McCoy, Jimmy Clausen and Sam Bradford. In addition to Brady, the quarterbacks who draw the fewest roughing the passer penalties are Eli Manning, Matt Schaub, Peyton Manning, David Garrard, Joe Flacco, Kevin Kolb and Tony Romo.

Whether there’s anything to glean from that data is open to debate, although Pereira is certainly correct that the star quarterbacks don’t appear to pick up roughing the passer penalties any more than the scrubs.

Or maybe the officials really do go too far to protect Campbell. That’s what Rex Ryan thinks.

    Schaub has had (1) in 2.2 seasons and the dude gets knocked down after almost every pass play. Heck, Jason Allen intentionally dove at his knee, tore a ligament and it went unflagged. There is definitely a bias towards the wimpier QB’s in the league.

  2. Chairman Al says: Sep 29, 2011 5:24 PM

    Campbell has been proving himself to be an intelligent QB so far. He may be a game manager right now, but if he doesn’t need to throw risky passes, why should he? He makes smart passes when he needs to.

    Of course, the season is young, but so far, he’s been playing it smart. We’ll see if he starts gunslinging it as it becomes time to talk contract. Will he need to step the numbers up to get the big bucks?

  3. damnyoulinelliot says: Sep 29, 2011 5:24 PM

    Can we really qualify him as a “passer”, though?

  4. thereisalwaysnextyear says: Sep 29, 2011 5:24 PM

    It’s because Jason holds the ball and throws it at the last second. Take it from a skins fan. He’s slow to get it out thus lineman/LBs are always closer to him and hit him more. More hits=more late hits.

  5. mrplow3 says: Sep 29, 2011 5:24 PM

    But wait, Tom Jackson implied Vick doesn’t get calls because he’s black. Tom Jackson would never steer me wrong……….right?……………………right???????

  6. lacharger2112 says: Sep 29, 2011 5:26 PM

    I’m not convinced that the act of throwing a flag AFTER your QB has been hammered is really “protection”.
    Looking at the list it seems that the QB’s getting the roughing calls are the same ones holding onto it it too long.

  7. pftbillsfan says: Sep 29, 2011 5:27 PM

    with that math he gets 10 penalties per 7 attempt…

  8. djmoore914 says: Sep 29, 2011 5:27 PM

    “Campbell draws a roughing the passer penalty once every 1.46 times he attempts a pass”

    Pretty sure you mean he gets a 1.46 penalties per 100 pass attempts. If he gets 1 penalty per every 1.46 attempts, he would essentially have a penalty called every time he throws the ball….

    “Campbell ranked No. 1 in drawing roughing the passer penalties, getting 1.46 for every 100 passes.”

    Gee what a shocker, Manning and Brady actually don’t get more calls than anyone else. Just like Colts and Pats fans have been saying for the past 2 years.

    Spin it any way you want MDS, but teams were penalized a total of 2 times for hits on Manning and Brady last year. TWICE. Is that really the story that gets painted in the media, on fan forums, and by bitter ex-players on talk radio?

    Thanks to Mike Pereira for finally getting these stats out there.

  10. jdandcoke says: Sep 29, 2011 5:31 PM

    its pretty safe to say that vick is just an excuse-making, terribly overrated, lowlife, a fact which we are all very well aware of…..time to move on.

  11. Cheesehead Ken says: Sep 29, 2011 5:32 PM

    Your stats aren’t interpreted correctly there, MDS. Campbell does not get a flag “once every 1.46 times he attempts a pass”- that’s 2 flags every three passes. He gets a flag on 1.46% of his passes, or once every 68 passes. Brady gets a flag on 0.16% of his passes or once every 625 passes. Still quite a disparity, but not as you indicated.

  12. ronlm says: Sep 29, 2011 5:32 PM

    “The fact that Campbell draws a roughing the passer penalty once every 1.46 times he attempts a pass while Tom Brady draws a roughing the passer penalty once every 0.16 times he attempts a pass probably means that Brady is getting the ball away before the defense even gets close to him, while Campbell is frequently throwing under intense pressure.”
    ____________

    Campbell has been sacked the fewest times, and has the fewest hits on him than any QB in the league. So your theory of him throwing under intense pressure doesn’t wash in that sense. The Raiders OL is playing extremely well. But Brady getting rid of the ball very quickly does hold water, IMO.

  13. rayguyreturns says: Sep 29, 2011 5:33 PM

    “The fact that Campbell draws a roughing the passer penalty once every 1.46 times he attempts a pass…”

    ___________________________________
    Perhaps you may wish to reread this. It’s per “100” passes, NOT per pass, otherwise he would get the call every 1.5 (+/-) passes.

    You may also note that he attempts fewer passes than just about everyone else, magnifying the statistic.
    Statistics. You can make them say just about anything.

  14. zukith says: Sep 29, 2011 5:34 PM

    You are explaining it wrong. According to the stats, Jason Campbell draws 1.46 roughing the passer calls for every 100 passes attempted, not 1 per 1.46 attempts…

    Either way, this stat is stupid and in no way illustrates whether there is, or is not, a bias towards particular qb’s.

  15. tfaulk says: Sep 29, 2011 5:39 PM

    “The fact that Campbell draws a roughing the passer penalty once every 1.46 times he attempts a pass while Tom Brady draws a roughing the passer penalty once every 0.16 times he attempts a pass probably means that Brady is getting the ball away before the defense even gets close to him, while Campbell is frequently throwing under intense pressure.”

    You have to be using those numbers wrong. Certainly your words are wrong. Are maybe I’ve lost it?

    You are saying that Campbell gets a roughing call more than every other pass attempt, and INSANELY… Brady gets about 6 roughing the passer penalties per throw (1 penalty for every .16 throw). Now, you could flip that around where Brady gets a roughing call 1 out of every 6 pass attempts, but that would again give Campbell 1.46 penalties per throw.

    Or more likely we are talking about a % of throws? A penalty call on 1.46% or .16% of throws? That sounds more sensible, but I have no clue from the horrible way you conveyed the data.

  16. cmoney20 says: Sep 29, 2011 5:41 PM

    I cant think of anyone’s opinion id rather hear less than Mike Pereira(Ok maybe Sal Pal or Ricky Bo or Ed Rendell). Part of his explanation when he was accusing the Eagles of leading the league in complaining was that Vick “runs around a lot”. That should never be part of any answer in regards to late hits because that doesnt matter. I dont know who likes hearing from this guy, everytime he comes on TV I throw something at it.

    Too many thumbs up for a guy who said the word “implied” in his statement.

    Tom Jackson said pocket-passers get more calls then Vick. There are more white pocket-passers then black, so this guy made a HORRIBLE connection.

    Mr Plow, why dont you go home and check out Mrs Plow and make sure she’s not getting…. well, you know. Plowed

  18. waitingguilty says: Sep 29, 2011 5:43 PM

    I support anything that shows Vick for the fool he is…and this certainly qualifies.

    “Why don’t I get the calls like the superstars…you know…like for instance…Jason Campbell!?!?!”

    I’ll say one thing though…if there is any subconscious judging/favoritism going on by Refs…this may be an example….Jason is probably the nicest, most humble starting QB in the league.

  19. marcinhouston says: Sep 29, 2011 5:44 PM

    How many calls they get per passing attempt is irrelevant. Roughing the passer can only be called if the QB is actually hit and basically only if they are taken to the ground, since you dont see a lot of calls for roughing the passer when the qb stays on their feet. So to have something meaningful you would need to say how many times they get the call per trip to the ground. Raiders QBs make a lot of trips to the ground because their Oline has not pass blocked well and their owner likes to draft only deep threat receivers who run deep routes that take time to develop. Also, I wonder if this statistic counts declined penalties. Other teams may decline the penalty more because their wide receivers catch the balls thrown at the last minute more often.

  20. kenyab4 says: Sep 29, 2011 5:45 PM

    Those stats are misleading! It would be more accurate to calculate the number of hits on a QB by the number of penalties they draw. Thats just my opinion

  21. laeaglefan says: Sep 29, 2011 5:50 PM

    You’re right….the way those stats were presented are unintelligible. If we’re talking about percentages, then it makes sense. But if the number is supposed to mean for each pass thrown, it can’t be right.

  22. mikea311 says: Sep 29, 2011 5:50 PM

    worthless stat.

    the real question is ratio of flags to hits.

  23. rexismybff says: Sep 29, 2011 5:55 PM

    I’ve got a feeling that Brady will lead the league this week – and that the Raiders won’t care. Penalties or not, they’ll just keep hitting him.

  24. rogeliocgb says: Sep 29, 2011 5:56 PM

    This guy really doesent follow Raider games; the Raiders o-line has been excellent; that doesent mean they are protecting him, his o-line is.

  25. r8derfan33 says: Sep 29, 2011 5:57 PM

    It is a worthless stat…Campbell has only been sacked twice in three games and 1 of them came at the hands of DMC’s feet in the Jets game. I think our O-line has been playing phenominaly well…also, league leader in rushing….another stat for our Oline…

  26. bloggingpoodlewalker says: Sep 29, 2011 6:02 PM

    Jason Campbell is a class act, going to get better each game, will lead the Raiders to the playoffs,…and the Redskins gave him away for nothing,…Rex Grossman,..really?… LMAO

  27. oaklegend says: Sep 29, 2011 6:03 PM

    Here’s a theory worth considering… maybe he’s been roughed more than any other passer. Hmm? Someone has to be the most roughed passer, so what’s the big deal? It’s only 1.4 times out of every 100 passes, so it’s not something that even happens once a game. Frankly this is about the biggest non-story I’ve seen in a long time.

  28. RomosRibs says: Sep 29, 2011 6:05 PM

    JC’s gonna have to STOP TACKLING BELOW THE BELT !

  29. trseann says: Sep 29, 2011 6:06 PM

    Knowing the ratio of flags to hits would be just as worthless because – Are you listening Vick? – not all hits are illegal.

    Sometimes quarterbacks just get the snot knocked out of them because they aren’t rhythm passers. They hold the ball too long, look to make a big play, and get rocked as they throw the ball.

    So, I don’t care if Big Ben has more hits than flags than anyone. If someone wants to go through the film and figure the ratio of illegal hits that were missed to flags, feel free.

  30. truthserum4u says: Sep 29, 2011 6:07 PM

    “It would be much more useful to analyze penalties per hit than penalties per pass.”

    Excellent point MDS!!

    That is the stat that would get to the crux of the debate.

  31. mel1sharples says: Sep 29, 2011 6:08 PM

    Can you get a roughing the passer penalty against your own teammate?

  32. giablommi says: Sep 29, 2011 6:14 PM

    Well he may not have the lead after this week considering the Pats haven’t had a pass rush for 3 years and counting

  33. bobhk says: Sep 29, 2011 6:20 PM

  34. raiderlyfe510 says: Sep 29, 2011 6:22 PM

    Gotta give props to our great commissioner Goodell for having Jason Campbell’s back.He knows what he’s doing..He knows If JC gets hurt, our season’s finito. Kyle Boller is the worst QB breathing.

  35. dobreshunka says: Sep 29, 2011 6:24 PM

    Re-run the numbers by hits and you’ll get a much different story. Brady & Peyton Manning never get hit & throw a ton of passes, but when they do get hit they draw flags.

    If you want to limit it to “hits taken in the pocket,” that’s even better. Somebody’s got these numbers. Call up Football Outsiders. Run it for the past three years to get the sample size of hits high enough to mean something. Break it out by year so that players like Vick and rookies w/less than three years get counted too.

  36. sam148 says: Sep 29, 2011 6:27 PM

    This post should be re-established showing number of hits, sacks, attempts, and then flags for roughing the passer to show an unbiased opinion.

    dobreshunka,

    Brady got one single solitary RTP call in 16 games. Unless he was only hit once all season you’re not gonna get a “much different story” that shows that when “they get hit they draw flags”. No matter what numbers you run you can’t get away from the one RTP call fact. One one one one.

  39. otis52gsh says: Sep 29, 2011 6:34 PM

    Maybe if Vick could read a defense more effectively like the QB’s who get rid of the ball faster, he wouldn’t get hit as much. I guess the NFL and refs are in cahoots with that too. Cam can read a D better and he is a rookie for Pete’s sake.

  41. daddyoscar says: Sep 29, 2011 6:36 PM

    A couple things. Brees is fairly high on the list . he almost never leaves the pocket, however i have seen him throw he ball away very few times. he always tries to complete a pass..

    However, guys who get out side the pocket tend to have unblocked guys running at them full speed. particularly linebackers and db’s playing zone. it’s harder for them to stop/

    so i’d say it’s a combination of leaving the pocket, and holding the ball longer

  42. banfootball4life says: Sep 29, 2011 6:36 PM

    In addition to Brady, the quarterbacks who draw the fewest roughing the passer penalties are Eli Manning, Matt Schaub, Peyton Manning, David Garrard, Joe Flacco, Kevin Kolb and Tony Romo.

    __________________________________

    Although better, even this would be misleading: Not all hits are illegal, so the only real stat (which does not exist) that would matter is this one:

    How many hits you took that were actually illegal compared to how many calls you actually got.

    In the meantime, you just have to guesstimate, and say that Vick seems like he is in the norm for what NFL referees call for someone, who holds the ball too long.

  46. yeahyeahyeahbono14 says: Sep 29, 2011 6:51 PM

    I’m pretty sure the reason that Peyton Manning is coming up in the “least amount of roughing the passer” calls is because HE HASN’T PLAYED A GAME YET THIS YEAR. I guess that means Brady Quinn is also in the mix with Peyton Manning, too. David Garrard??!? Jimmy Clausen??!?

    When was this article written… 2010?

  47. toledoohoh says: Sep 29, 2011 6:59 PM

    All those saying it is a meaningless stat, does it not quite clearly show the league does not give special preference to its stars?

    The whole “out of the pocket”, “uncalled illegal hits”, etc is just unnecessary noise.

    If Manning and Brady between them received two RTP calls in their 32 combined games, then it cannot be any clearer that the league is not favoring them. Whether Vick gets more or less calls than Rex Grossman I couldn’t care less.

  48. snaponrules says: Sep 29, 2011 7:00 PM

    I think if you ran the stats different you would come up with a much more true “star protection”.

    Instead of total drop backs verses flags. Look at number of times hit verses flags.
    Brady expects (and most times gets) a flag for anybody touching him. Peyton and the rest of the stars are not far behind.
    Compared to campbell, cutler and the rest will get hit the head 4 times before a flag ever comes out.
    It goes the same with the players around them. Look at the “illegal” hit Bennett took the chest during the saints game. That knock him out for 3 weeks that wasn’t flagged, yet breathing on welker is considered holding him.

  49. habsman says: Sep 29, 2011 7:04 PM

    Ohoh, what are Brady haters going to say now?

  50. ccoolahan14 says: Sep 29, 2011 7:13 PM

    Weird that Joe Flacco would not receive a SINGLE roughing penalty when the NFL would privately admit to the Ravens that there where ELEVEN incidents where he should have drawn a flag (as foxsports reported- and this website ignored, of course)! But Ravens games aren’t rigged right? Evidence keeps stacking up. Weird.

  51. tfaulk says: Sep 29, 2011 7:19 PM

    I agree with your stat as a starting point to look at the issue. I’m not sure I agree or would expect the data to bear out a “star theory.”

    At least not exactly. I treat it as gamesmanship. The lousy jobs the Giants did of faking injuries to slow down the game vs. being so slick it is never noticed.

    If you are a QB like Brady who talks to the officials constantly but with respect and probably not begging too much, being adverserial… you can work an official when a clean hit still looks back or has perfect timing to get a flag. And if you are a pocket passer who is highly evasive, etc… It all contributes. As a mobile QB, Vick is often running blind into many a legal but more devastating hit…. So boo-hoo if you don’t get the calls. And it’s not because of your color. Or your prison record.

    And, again, more precise data may not even show that Brady gets more flags or that Vick does not.

    So let’s be truthful here Brady cries everytime he gets touched.. He is always crying to the refs but unfortunately for Brady his last game will be sunday cause Richard Seymour will be ending his career on sunday..
    And by the way the refs throw flags when somebody roughs campbell but they make sure to throw one at the raiders at the same time so they never mean anything they always off set..
    The NFL does not want the raiders to succeed thats a fact and ESPN will not even show a highlight if Raiders win but they have no problem showing highlights of the raiders getting blown out..They show every TD when that happens…

  57. jgrange says: Sep 29, 2011 8:49 PM

    MDS, this was a fluff piece. You should’ve done more research and you shouldn’t have botched a simple math ratio. Campbell has been sacked twice this year and the one sack came from tripping over Darren McFadden’s shoe. How does your conclusion make any sense in this case? He rarely gets hit and his offensive line has been protecting him so far this year. Quit holding onto old viewpoints and generalizing and update your opinions or you look like you just mailed this stuff in.

  58. joyjoy69 says: Sep 29, 2011 8:55 PM

    hmmmm, a couple thoughts here. First, something tells me that these numbers won’t convince any Pattriot haters that Brady isn’t protected by the refs, and that he complains more than anyone else… even though every WR in the league complains to the refs when they miss a pass, no matter what team. Most QBS who pick themselves up off the ground also whine like 3 year olds. I’ve watched every Brady post-game interview since he started 10 years ago. I haven’t heard him complain about the officiating, or about cheap hits not being called. Ever. Not once.

    Second, I think that the statistical analysis would be much more telling if it factored in %of plays where the QB leaves the pocket, and also included number of hits, %time hit that penalties were called (both in and out of the pocket) and also factor the average time before release for each QB. I’m only guessing here, but I suspect we’d find there is no meaningful statistical difference between any QB once these numbers were pulled. So much for you Patriots haters and your belief that Brady gets all the calls his way.

    —————

    You missed the point. From the numbers discussed, Campbell got more protection from the refs than any other QB… nothing to defend him against. If you want to play the race card, Garrard and Freeman would be the guys to defend. Most of the black QBs are in the top half of most protected QBs (by the numbers).

  61. johnnysox says: Sep 29, 2011 9:06 PM

    Pereira’s stats mean next to nothing.

    The point is to make the right calls. Too many RTP calls are being missed. If there are 10 missed calls on Campbell does it really matter that he gets the most RTP calls ?

    Or Vick, or Brees, or anyone else ?

    No.

    Make the right calls.

    From looking at all these post I see that no one bothered to look at the stats from last year to measure against these stats. Well, i did and according to these stats Peyton Manning never saw a flag for roughing the passer last year because he saw a roughing the passer flag one in every 679 pass attempts yet he only threw the ball 675 times last season. We all know that is incorrect as he drew 2 flags for roughing the passer against the Eagles alone. This stat was manufactured to tell the REF’s tale and not the truth.

    The way to go with this stat is to show the # of calls for RTP as opposed to # of times hit.

    And by the way the refs throw flags when somebody roughs campbell but they make sure to throw one at the raiders at the same time so they never mean anything they always off set..
    The NFL does not want the raiders to succeed thats a fact and ESPN will not even show a highlight if Raiders win but they have no problem showing highlights of the raiders getting blown out..They show every TD when that happens…
    The Future is now and the Future is The Raiders”

    WELL SAID.

    where’s Tom Jackson? Why doesnt he defend Campbell from the evil whitey refs like he did Vick the other night?”

    BECAUSE HE LACKS OBJECTIVITY WHEN IT COMES TO THE RAIDERS BECAUSE THEY USED TO BEAT THE LIVING SNOT OUT OF HIM TWICE A YEAR. LOL….

    FUNNY, SAD AND TRUE ALL AT THE SAME TIME.

    HE IS NOT A REPORTER, HE IS A TELEVISION PERSONALITY.

    Maybe the defense is so made that they can’t stop Run DMC, that they are hitting Campbell late. Makes sense.

    Romo gets cheap shoted sooooo much that he doesn’t even look at the refs anymore after he’s hit to the ground. He knows he’s never going to get the call so why bother…

    Hopefully he gets knocked out soon by one of these hits. I dont think the NFL will miss him to much. Actually, I hope he takes it and plays through. Sweet watching him get “b” slapped.
    Maybe he does it on purpose because its the only way to get yardage on passing plays….

    gotta love michael david smith, ….what it really means is the o-line in oakland sucked last year under tom cable, and cambell took a beating.

    who really cares what rex ryan thinks….maybe he ought to just shut his pie hole for once.
