I included Alexs Houston half.
I still think Smith should start, but this spread B.S. is what it is, B.S., especially this
Double TE I am not going to run the ball offense is a Joke.
We need to get our best receivers out there.
And to think, we didn't have Crabs then and Gore was out for 3 games.
Blind I tell ya!
Okay, let me put this to rest really quick. First off, we've only been running the shotgun consistently the last 2 games.
Okay, so take 2 of our best games with the 'smash mouth' and our last 2 games and compare the stats.
Last two games: 32 first downs, 119 total plays, 713 yards of total offense, 58:05 top.
For the 2 first games I'll take our BEST into account. I'll choose Minnesota and Seattle the first time we played them.
29 first downs, 112 total plays, 625 yards of total offense, 62:22 time of possession.
Of these stats the Seattle game counted for 16 first downs, 60 plays, 34:31 top, and 379 total yards. That is the only game we went over 300 total yards in the 'smash mouth.'
Just some stats for you guys to chew on.
