5 - 1st down runs, (5,3,7,3 fumble,4)
1 - 1st down pass to leach
5 - 1st down runs ( 1,0,2,4,-2)
1- 1st down pass to rice
9 - 1st down runs ( 4,4,2 TD,2,6,3,28,0,1)
3 - 1st down passes ( 0,5,12)
7- 1st down runs (3,3 TD,-1,1,3,6,2)
2- 1st down passes (0, 14)
Totals: 27 - 1st down runs , 93yds avg 3.444 ypc
As a Team we had 40 Rushing Attempts total
So - 27/40 runs, 67.5% of our runs occurred on 1st down.
If we took out pierce's 28 yard run it would look like this 26 car for 65 yards ( 2.5 ypc)
So while we ran much better today and weren't stuffed for no gains and 1-2 yard gains as often this week it still shows a lack of diversity in play calling making us more predictable.
I'm glad we stuck with the run game this week, I'm only saying I'd like to see some screens, slants, short crossing routes , quick outs occasionally on first downs to keep the defense guessing and pick up quick yardage to setup 2nd and short.
