Also, here's the
grim numbers on 1st down and 0 or less yards achieved link
Saw the numbers at Football Outsiders on run stuffs. The numbers of
2012 were bad
. Much worse than any other Dennison year. Even worse than some bad running game years.
You can't just attribute that to running in obvious run situations because 2011 they did that a lot.
But since they didn't take many chances on third and long, they didn't have
any turn over either.
