It's a good thing one person can't really do much to averages when there are 57 entrants, eh nollie?
Anyway, as a group it looks like the lot of us expect that Matt Schaub's passing yards will go down, his touchdowns will go slightly up, and his interceptions will go slightly down. In other words: we expect to have an actual running game this year and Schaub won't have to do so much on his own, letting him be more efficient.
My only quibble with that logic is that if the run game is good, I'd expect his touchdowns to go down, rather than up, since Kubiak loves to pound the rock inside the five. It'll be interesting to compare this to the FO "Wisdom Of The Crowds" on Schaub when that comes out next week.
More of these will be coming up before the season. I'm not sure if I'll have one next week or not because I have some interviews in the pipeline. Either there will be 2 interviews next week and 2 projections the week after, or one of each in both weeks.
Monday Edit: FO released their wisdom of the crowds on Schaub. I'd say you guys did a pretty good job. We were 60 yards shy, 2 touchdowns too high, and 2.5 interceptions too low.
Average: 4,218 passing yards, 29 TD, 15 INT
