Our number of 3 and outs isn't that bad. It is slightly below what is the median of the league. Our drive success rate is down a bit but it isn't like we are having an inordinate amount of three and outs compared to the rest of the league

How many 3 and outs do we have?



Bingo.

The offense does not stay on the field long enough for him to have attempts.

I think we can all agree that it's kind of difficult to convert on the 3rd down when u burn the first two downs on the read option that the defense knows is coming.

It's ok though - because the read option we run on 3rd down will fool them.

Noone expects a third read option.

I think a lot of our 3 and outs are coming from runs on first and second down out of the read option. If we pass a little bit more often we might be more successful getting first downs. Also I haven't seen many WR screens, I wonder why that is.

29th in time of possession, mostly because of...
24th in 3rd down conversions (34%) and some of...
27th in turnovers (-5)

What? Nooo. Most likely he has so few attempts because we can't keep drives alive and then our defense lets the other team dink and dunk up the field. Our time of possession is terrible. The answer isn't "throw maor."

Raw pass/run numbers aren't as telling as percentages of pass plays to our offensive plays.

We have 140 pass attempts vs 128 rushes...so we already are passing more than rushing....and some rushes were called passes.

For example, Miami is 16th in pass attempts vs us as 29. Miami runs more than they pass
