Will Ryan Toss a TD this Weekend?

I'm not sure if he throws a touchdown. They tend to give it to Turner to punch it in when they get into the red zone.

But, we need to see some touchdowns - and I don't care if it's rushing, throwing or defensive!

bleh...seemed like last year they were trying to help Ryan get his TDs up the way they would throw in the redzone. remember the 1st Saints game when Turner was dominating people, then Mularkey drew up the out to TG that ended up being intercepted. I know, i know, it was more a defensive play than an offensive mistake, but Turner was busting through the Saints, they were tired, don't give them a passing play :angry: anyways, yeah, we need a TD bad...hopefully by the Saints game we'll have a little chemistry going on, seems like the team is getting used to the new, "keep the play alive" Ryan.

I actually felt we tried too much rushing in the red zone - after Turner went down. I can remember trying 4 times in a row with Snelling - it was driving me crazy.

Snelling did a great job - but he's no Turner when it comes to punching it in. There really wasn't much difference in attempts from within the red zone though. Here are the numbers

Within 9 yards of goal line:

2008: 20 passes for 6 TD (6 of 16 TDs = 37.5%) (TD every 3.3 passes)

2009: 21 passes for 9 TD (9 of 22 TDs = 40.9%) (TD every 2.3 passes)

2008: 36 rushes for 14 TD(14 of 17 TDs = 82.4%) (TD every 2.5 rushes)

2009: 12 rushes for 7 TD ( 7 of 10 TDs = 70.0%) (TD every 1.7 rushes)

Snelling

2009: 22 rushes for 4 TD (4 of 4 TDs = 100%) (TD every 5.5 rushes)

Totals:

2008: 20 Passes & 36 Rushes (35.7% to 64.2%)

2009: 21 Passes & 34 Rushes (38.2% to 61.8%)

=================================

Between the 19 yard line and the 1 yard line:

2008: 62 passes for 9 TD (9 of 16 TDs = 56.3%) (TD every 6.8 passes)

2009: 52 passes for 9 TD (9 of 22 TDs = 40.9%) (TD every 5.7 passes)

2008: 70 rushes for 14 TD (14 of 17 TDs = 82.4%) (TD every 5 rushes)

2009: 26 rushes for 8 TD ( 8 of 10 TDs = 80.0%) (TD every 3.5 rushes)

Snelling

2009: 39 rushes for 4 TD (4 of 4 TDs = 100%) (TD every 9.8 rushes)

Totals:

2008: 62 Passes & 70 Rushes (46.9% to 53.0%)

2009: 52 Passes & 65 Rushes (44.4% to 55.6%)

What I see from this:

1. The closer we get to the goal line - the more we turn to the rush - in 2008 it went from 53% within 19 to 64% within 9 and in 2009 it went from 55.6% within 19 to 61.8% within 9.

2. In 2009, we had a slight increase in passing plays within the 9 yard range - up from 35.7% to 38.2% - couple that with the difference of a TD every 1.7 rushes for Turner and every 5.5 rushes for Snelling compared to every 2.3 passes - and I think the compelling reason for the slight increase is missing Turner - not padding Ryan's touchdowns.

I just know the offense better dayum score more than once. Its been since the 3rd preseason game since the 1st team offense has seen the endzone. Thats a shame..

well what's even worse is that it's been 9 months since the first team offense found the endzone in the regular season. OH NOEZ!

Also we haven't won a home regular season game since december of LAST YEAR?!?!?!?!?!?

word, thanks for breaking it down, sometimes the perception is way off from the facts, that's obviously the case here.

Boy, you need a job, boyfriend or something to occupy your time spent being a big d.ouche.

He had a girlfriend - but I think Ryan stole her away. Explains a lot.

Side note: The only thing I don't like about the ignore feature is that when someone quotes them - you can see the post. Wish they could fix that. Off to the suggestion box I go!

Huh? So you're another one making excuses for Ryans horrendous ints?

Wow, can't say I'm surprised. It was another awful decision and throw by noodle arm Ryan.

that one wasn't that bad. TG was far enough to justify throwing over the linebacker in middle coverage, and he threw it low so TG could use his body against the defender. pretty good throw, great play by Vilma, I believe it was.

if anyone can get a message to matt ryan, warn him dockett likes to jump the snap count he better be using some hardcounts or he will find himself on the turf.

Isn't this the team that put us out of the playoffs during Ryan's rookie season? Especially with the jumping of the snap count and no one did anything to counter act :o it.
