What this measures is the likelihood that a particular player's completed pass would result in a subsequent completed pass. Since I initially presented this precursory measurement, I have made some significant adjustments and now feel comfortable claiming that it's a much better method of evaluating passing effectiveness than overall pass-completion rate.
