Updated R-column calculator

I’ve attached an update to my RB card calculator. This version fixes a minor calculation issue that impacted some RB. Most of the additions are explained in the notes. The biggest addition is that the spreadsheet will now give an estimate of how often the entered card will generate various gains. There was a discussion recently on ABTL regarding the 1983 John Riggins card. I hope that this spreadsheet will shed some light on those type of questions.

Introducing Mr. Dan Flynn

I would like to introduce the newest “author” to the site, Mr. Dan Flynn. Dan has previously contributed an alternative “Yards per Catch” innovation and “R-Column Calculator” to estimate the yards per carry for running back cards. He is also an avid player who has currently completed week three of his 1981 NFL replay. His innovative mind is a credit to our community and I’m looking forward to anything he has to offer ranging from new innovations, evaluating tools, or statistical review of his current replay.  Welcome aboard Dan!  

Dan Flynn’s “QB Card Calculator”

Mr. Dan Flynn continues to create innovations to increase statistical accuracy and understanding card capability. Dan has used old APBA Journal articles to create a spreadsheet to estimate how a quarterback’s card should perform. Just type in the QB’s “P” column numbers to view estimated completion percentage, yards per completion, TD%, INT %, etc.

Dan Flynn’s “Yards per Catch” Innovation

Mr. Dan Flynn is an avid APBA Football player who recently contacted me regarding a Yards per Catch (YPC) innovation that he created. His “YardsPerCatch” spreadsheet allows the calculation of YPC ratings.  It also includes the chart used to determine the adjusted yardages.  The system allows for a range of YPC ratings from -5 to 10.  These ratings when used with the chart included will adjust the receivers YPC to more closely match their actual YPC. Mark Zarb and I reviewed the innovation and provided feedback. After several back and forth emails, Dan was nice enough to provide me with the finalized YPC spreadsheet and his methodology behind creating the innovation to share with the community. The instructions for usage are inside the spreadsheet.

I would like to thank Dan for all his hard work and attention to detail in creating this fine innovation. A job well done!
