haha... I wonder what all those Hill complainers will say now.....some of them were trying to use that 0-11 3rd down stat this past Monday, against him....even though we ran it on 3rd down a couple of times...and there were also catchable balls dropped (like the one to Coffee)
A dump off on 3rd down would pad the stat.
that dump off would have gave us a crucial 1st down.... I believe it was 3rd and 5... Coffee would have got the first, but he dropped it and we had to punt.
where as Farvra did the same "dump off" over the middle and their RB caught it and got a first down and ran for a big gain. (the play when he juked Willis)
so you can look at it as padding stats if you want.....but if you are a 49er fan then you would know how important that "padded" stat would have been .
