I look forward to seeing the Bears play. Martz is one of the best offensive minds I have seen in the last decade. I love his style of offense, its just fun to watch. One of Sings biggest mistakes was firing him and hiring Raye.
offensive NFL rank (pts scored) in 2008 under Martz - 22nd
offensive NFL rank (pts scored) in 2009 under Raye - 18th
Total points scored: the 49ers had 339 in 2008 and 330 in 2009*. We also had almost identical rushing yards between 2008 and 2009, 1599 in 2008 and 1600 in 2009. Had about 300 more passing yards in 2008 with Martz. However, we made huge strides in turnovers. I believe we had 11 less turnovers in 2009 compared to 2008.
* We had a return for a TD in 2008 which accounts for 7 points obviously. Both years we had 4 defensive TD's. So i guess the real difference strictly in terms of offense is 2 points.
What was the run vs. pass call rate though?
That would tell the biggest difference.
With Martz - 509 Passing Attempts and 397 Rushing Attempts
With Raye - 528 Passing Attempts and 371 Rushing Attempts
