Beginning my look at week 3 game log. Here's a summary of the Panthers performance on 3rd & 4th downs versus Houston:
What really strikes me:
1) The success in converting some key 3rd & longs. (3/5 not counting a penalty play)
2) The efficiency of our drives - especially in the 2nd half. In the second half, not counting a kneel on the final drive of the game, we faced only four 3rd/4th downs and converted three of them (3/4 = 75%).
Only FOUR 3rd/4th down attempts in 35 plays in the 2nd half!!! (Contrast that with 7 3rd/4th down attempts on 35 plays in the 1st half)
Here's the summary table for week 3.
Here are the details from the game log:
That rant was beautiful. Just 9 minutes of poetry. I don't know why, but I have an unnatural love for when a sports personality gets to genuinely put on their "fan" hat and just vent like they were amongst friends.
