Tale of the tape - RBs running success rate

Recommended Posts

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

Same RBs, Same O-Line, different OCs.  Everyone has seen Gio and Hill succeed in the past.  Mixon looks like a hybrid version of those two and may be the best back since Corey Dillon ... time will tell.  

What's clear is the O-line still SUCKS.  Obviously Whit and KZ were/are better than their replacements. 

Good news is Moobs played way more than OogieBoogie vs Cleveland and I think Paul A. Is finally going to see better than he hears regarding Oogie and even Fisher.

Not as sure if Bodine will ever be replaced though

PFF grades Bengals' o-line as worst in the NFL, by a looong shot.  Who's responsible for both the o-line and run-blocking schemes? Paul Alexander, the greatest coach in history.

What is this, fake news?  Just kidding.  They suck, and a series of front office missteps set it all in motion.  

Time to find a new line coach and some new linemen.
