AMPHAR Posted October 3, 2017 Report Share Posted October 3, 2017 Using the time honored success standards for a running play Success - 4+ yards on a carry Success - Less than 4 on conversion of 1st or TD Failure - Carry for a loss. Stripping out QB runs. I come up with 97 total carries so far: 52 - Mixon 18 - Gio 25 - Hill 2 -WR Going back through the play by play. The mighty Bengals running game has had some inconsistent success. 36 carries out of 97 - 37% of the time. They have also experience FAILURE 15 times, a tad bit over 15% of the time. However several of those losses were playing out the game in blowouts Ravens and Browns. 48% of running plays they are just grinding it out in the 3 yards and a cloud of dust. If this season becomes interesting, I will revisit later. Just for record 19 success runs came under Zampese with only 7 Failures Leaving 17 success for Lazor with 9 Failure plays. No real determination so far as far as OC is concerned. I would think 45%, 45%, 10% would be a key to generating more points. At this juncture Bengals are: 27th total yards - Avrg 291 23rd rushing yards Avrg 88 27th scoring Avrg 16 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
