There is one fundamental reason for this discrepancy. Defenses are scared of Fred Taylor and will scheme to stop him AND Smith. Most of the defenses we face focus on shutting down AJ and dare DD to beat them. We basically face cover 2 defenses every week, even from teams that do not traditionally run that defense. Nobody bites on play-action passes. This results in a lack of big pass plays, particularly from our star receiver who is double-teamed most of the game.
