But notably
"Conversion Rate, Third-and-20 or more: 4.7 percent. Teams were nine-of-193 on third down when needing 20 or more yards to convert, including two pass interference conversions. There were six passing conversions and one rush. The rush was by Ogbonnaya, of all people, against the Steelers, of all teams."

too funny, and this

"Worst Completions: Four Way Tie. There were four completions that lost nine yards this season. Usual suspects Chris Johnson and Reggie Bush joined Chris Ogbonnaya and Isaac Redman in accomplishing this feat. There were six completions for a loss of eight, including Flacco-to-Flacco and another appearance by Redman.... Redman only had one other reception for a loss, but he only averaged 4.3 yards per catch on 18 catches, because the Steelers believe screens are for receivers and checkdowns are for wussies."

Our screens seem to be the most awkwardly designed screens in all of football.

HEAR YE! HEAR YE! Our execution of screens is HORRENDOUS! I would be thrilled if we NEVER ran another bubble screen again.
