Our TOP has gone way up already. We are 6th in the league, and here is another telling stat..we are 2nd in third down percentage, a 52% conversion rate, while being 12 in attempts. I don't know if it is fact, but my hunch is the majority of those conversions where made rushing (third and short). If that's the case, opposing defenses are going to have to fight their ass off not to bite on play action.
Now it's preseason, so drawing conclusions is not a wise thing to do. However, it appears that Sing may have some serious ball control football well underway. From the stats, it's looking like he has delivered on his statements about not being a charity, and ball control. We all know the running game is going VERY well (ranked 1), and coupled with the above stats, it is looking like the passing game (off of play action) may open up quite a bit for us during the season. From the above stats I seriously think we are going to burn opponents with play action. (Which I think Raye and Sing have kept under wraps during the pre-season). I seriously think they are going to go play action big time once the season starts, with the way things look as of now.
That ass wipe piece of s**t Crabtree needs to get his ass on the field.
Side note: Looking at the above stats for the Seachokes, I think the Seachickens are in some serious trouble offensively. They have no running game, they are attempting piles of third and longs, there TOP is sucking bad. No ball control at all, except not turning it over. They aren't Warner/Fitz/Boldin, I don't think they have the ability to rely on the passing game. They are in trouble, IMHO.
