I know you're supposed to pass sometimes but...: Currently our designed pass plays result in an average gain of 3.54 yards and our designed runs result in an average of 6.46 yards.
Well you have to pass in long-yardage situations, right?: How long are we talking? Based on the percentages, it makes sense to pass on 3rd and 8 or greater and to run on 3rd and 7 or less. 30.9% of our designed runs result in gains of 7 yards or more, 26.4% of our dropbacks result in gains of 7 yards or more.
Four yards and a cloud of dust: 54.9% of our rushing plays result in gains of 4 yards or more compared to just 36.8% of our passing plays.
Punching it in: Over the last four years, our offense has scored 93 touchdowns and settled for 100 field goals (made). Last year our td-to-made-field-goal ratio was an abysmal 0.66:1. Through five games this year, we've scored 15 tds and settled for just 8 field goals.
Punching it in pt. II: Last year, it took our offense ten games to tally 15 tds.
