I wouldn't put "first half points" in the "quirky" category - we're not exactly talking about "points scored in the third quarter in domed stadiums after a halftime show that did NOT include cheerleaders but did include an aging rock & roll veteran on stage."
I think - maybe I'm wrong - that the point of a forum is in fact to discuss what we should take away from it. My guess is that our general incompetence in running the football has a correlation with the early game behaviors we're exhibiting - we're trying to establish the run and just can't do it. I'm not sure that's a playcalling flaw, although by this time in the season you would hope we would have adapted to our strengths and weaknesses. But it might be the most likely explanation for this statistic.
