Short Yardage And Goal Line Rushing: Who Has The Edge?


Recommended Posts

Michael Turner,Quizz and Frank Gore rank near the bottom in converting 3rd and 2 or less. I am surprised Gore is actually converting less % than both Turner and Quizz. Falcons defense is good in stopping on 3rd and short and should continue doing it. Matt Ryan is 1/1 in 3rd and 2 or less and CK is 1/2 on 3rd and 2 or less. Falcons have better chance of converting 3rd and 2 by passing than rushing.


Gore is clearly better here, in top 5 for TD % running ins the goal line situations(inside the 3 yard line). Turner ranks near the bottom. Falcons need to do better job in stopping Frank Gore in goal line stands and Turner and OL needs to do better.

At 6'5", or what ever his height is, Kaepernick can just dive over the line. Just another option with Gore when SF is on the 1 or 2 yd line. Our best option against SF defensive line is a pass.

SF surprisingly don't use Keap inside the 5 yard line. Could change but not in the regular season.
