We can run.
We don't have as many 3 and outs.
Red zone efficiency will come with time although it is horrible right now.
But at least we are getting in the red zone.
ummm, no, it isn't at all better than last year at this time. In fact, it's flip flopped.
After 5 games:
2012 17.2 pts/gm 287.2 yds/gm 147.0 passing 140.2 rushing
2011 18.8 pts/gm 290.0 yds/gm 207.0 passing 83.0 rushing
Our rushing game is now clicking, but our passing game took as big a step backwards as our rushing game has progressed. I hate to point out the obvious, but with TJack passing the ball, we averaged 60 yards more per game. That would move us from one of the worst in the NFL to right about the middle of the pack offensively.
We'd be 5-0 right now, I'm sure of it. We're that close in both those losses. And an extra 60 yards passing vs Green Bay we don't need that Hail Mary. An extra 60 yards vs Carolina we win by more than 4.
Now, I HATED us picking up TJack, though he won my respect last year. And we all KNOW Flynn easily beat out TJack this year. So if A>B and B>C then it stands to reason doesn't it, that we'd be 5-0 if not for tendinitis.
Richard Sherman doesn't just wanna get in your head, he wants to build a vacation home there.
