Re: starting field position
the message here?
When we start on the opponents side of the field, we only scored 48% of the time
Our opponents in our territory? They scored 72% of the time.
I'd like to see these numbers through the first 8-9 games compared to the season as a whole - I bet they were looking a little better than this.
My assumptions based on these stats are:
Our special teams were horrid
The 2nd half off our season, the offense was horrid
We didn't create enough turnovers, and especially when the opponent was marching on us. If they got the ball on our side, you could pretty much count on them scoring.
Honestly - it is awesome that we didn't go below 8-8 with some of the huge red flags out there.
We'll be back to 10-6 next season, I have faith that some of these changes will do our team some good.
Look into my eyes
