So excited! We just got our email to get on blue pride! Quick question, what exactly is the 100$ per seat for? Just to reserve how many spots we want for when season tickets become available? I’m stoked!
When it came to 3rd and 3 or shorter, our philosophy most of the time was basically give it to Carson and get the hell out of his way. And it was a good philosophy, with our backs converting 67.7% of the time, 9th best in the NFL
We ran on 3rd and short 63% of the time (vs 54% for the rest of the league). The other 27% of the time it was a near disaster.
Despite having an elite QB and defenses largely planning against a Carson handoff, Russ and the passing attack converted just 41.9% of the time (Rosen's Cards at 40.0%). They also turned it over a ridiculous 9.3% of the time, nearly 3x the league average. Compare this to 3-10 yards to go situations, where the passing attack converted on (slightly) better than league average and turned it over slightly less.
And "among the worst" is underselling it, because including the turnovers, we were the single worst. Which leads me to ask, what the hell is Schottenheimer calling in short yardage situations that causes a Wilson led passing attack to perform worse than a Sam Darnold one?
