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.
