Hurries

What does Hurries Mean?

Hurries is a statistic kept for defensive players, usually defensive linemen, when they "hurry" the quarterback into throwing the ball before he is ready. Hurries often result in incomplete passes or even interceptions.


Sporting Charts explains Hurries

A quarterback hurry is counted when a defender either forces a quarterback out of the pocket or pressures the throw. It doesn't necessarily mean that the defender actually forced the quarterback to make a bad throw. Hurries are often a good indicator of a team's pass rush. Just because a player is not getting sacks, it does not mean he is not a good pass rusher, because hurrying the quarterback into a poor decision can be just as effective.
