Re: More people noticing Kubiaks Conservative play calling...
In 2012, Schaub had 53 attempts in the red zone.
He threw for 14 TDs and 2 INTs.
14/53 = 26.42% of the attempts went into the endzone and resulted in a TD
16/53 = 30.19%, (taking account the 2 INTs) of his attempts went into the endzone.
The rest of the league had 2,125 attempts.
They had 496 TDs and 53 Ints.
496/2,125 = 23.34% of the attempts went into the endzone and resulted in a TD.
549/2,125 = 25.84% (inlcuding INTs)
As we can see here, on these two aspects, Schaub had attempted more passes into the endzone (as a percentage of pass attempts) than the average of the league (about 5% more of the time.)
This does not take into account passes thrown into the endzone that resulted in incompletions or the time a QB was sacked while attempting to do so.
We'll get to that a little later.
To say that the Texans had Schaub not throwing into the endzone is incorrect.
Yes, the Texans did run a lot in the redzone (because they can).
But when they did pass, they weren't shy about going for six points.
