Stats per ESPN
Had to look this up myself and the stats are correct but the only problem is you didn't take rushing stats into consideration. Kaep had 4 rushing TDs to smith's 0. That being said Smith was also very good in the redzone though it'll never get recognized here.....
I wasn't really trying to make this an Alex vs Colin thing...but it was the easiest way to differentiate the first half of the season vs the 2nd half. I'd be curious to see what the RBs look like first half of the season inside the redzone vs 2nd half. You could argue that Colin opens things inside, but you can't argue that gore has dropped about a 1.5 yards per carry with the change..whatever the reason.
I think Colin is going to be amazing...but that aside...just talking about this team in the redzone...I don't see that it has gotten better. Period. Which goes back to my questioning the thread. I think our redzone offense has gotten worse.
