Spreading The Blame Around

A second look at each of the 11 sacks on McElroy shows seven of them occurring with less than 3 seconds from snap to initial hit. Three had between 3 and 3½ seconds, and one came on a second-quarter play where McElroy managed to dodge several defenders before being dropped close to the line of scrimmage — 8 seconds after the snap.

By an unofficial count, at least three of the sacks came when receivers in the progression did not have enough separation to attempt a throw.–Conor Orr on roughly how much time Greg McElroy had to throw
