The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing

PLIGHT OF THE FALCONS

By Marc Lawrence — From the 2021 PLAYBOOK Football Preview Guide magazine: In last season’s winless effort, Bowling Green ranked No. 126 in Red Zone Offense and No. 125 in Red Zone Defense, as well as No. 127 (last) in Turnover Margin Per Game.

That’s four consecutive seasons finishing 126, 128, 109 and 116 in Red Zone Offense. The nation’s worst.

Just to show how unbalanced Scott Loeffler’s offense is, Bill Connelly of ESPN points out that the Falcons’ tight ends caught 30 passes last season. The wide receivers caught 28.

With that, don’t forget this: Over the last 9 years, the Falcons have gone 42-7 SU in games in which they won the stats, and 6-50 SU when they lost the stats
