Default The Red Zone: The Scourge of Our Existence

So here we are again. Our offense actually looked managable in our first game (at least our passing game did), and our defense looked like it still needs quite a bit of work. But there's one thing I keep noticing with our team that recurs every year...the dreaded Red Zone



Our first Red Zone attempt came with 2:24 left in the first half following a 44 yard pass from Carr to Johnson putting us at the Phi 5. Our play calling went as follows:

1-5-PHI5 (2:24) W.Lundy left tackle to PHI 7 for -2 yards (M.Patterson, T.Cole).
2-7-PHI7 (2:00) D.Carr sacked at PHI 16 for -9 yards (M.Lewis).
3-16-PHI16 (1:15) D.Carr pass incomplete short right (J.Trotter).
4-16-PHI16 (1:07) K.Brown 34 yard field goal is GOOD, Center-B.Pittman, Holder-C.Stanley


Our next, and final Red Zone attempt came with 9:33 left in the 4th Quarter. The play calling went as such:

2-6-PHI19 (9:33) D.Carr pass incomplete short right to J.Putzier (M.Lewis).
3-6-PHI19 (9:26) D.Carr scrambles right end ran ob at PHI 17 for 2 yards (M.Patterson).
4-4-PHI17 (9:00) D.Carr pass incomplete short right to A.Johnson (S.Considine).

So...for the entire game, we ran exactly 6 plays (excluding the field goal) inside the Philadelphia 20. That's 0-2-0% folks. Ouch.



Here's last year's averages (per game) for comparison:

1-2.3-46.7%


Obvioulsy the coaching staff knows about this abysmal performance and are working to correct it...I just wanted everyone to get a feel for exactly why we have so many problems scoring. I would hope we'd take a page out of Hank Stam's old philosophy and work more on simply "matriculating the football".
