Who gets their number called in the Red Zone?

We looked at who CPJ looks to for ball security in the fourth quarter yesterday. Today, we're looking at who CPJ feels has a nose for the end zone when he's calling Red Zone plays. It's the P.J. Daniels (yard accumulator) versus Tashard Choice (TD machine) debate. First, a simple breakdown of play calls with respect to position.

Last year, we'd move the ball in close with the B-Backs and A-Backs and punch it in with QB dives. This year we're a little more reliant on the A-Backs in the red zone. Another interesting fact is that we go from a 17% of the time passing team to an 8% of the time passing team. Here's a breakdown of each player's load in the red zone:

Is anyone surprised that Roddy, Allen, and Nesbitt account for 81% of the carries within our opponent's 20 yard line? Not I.
