    My observations:

    1. Lindgren and Bernardi deserve a lot of praise for what we got out of an extremely young and inexperienced offense.

    2. The jumps in rushing YPA and passing TDs are nice to see.

    3. The lack of rushing TDs and a low passing YPA are big concerns going forward.

    4. The difference between the red zone scoring percentage and red zone TD percentage is a couple extra wins in all likelihood.

    Any stats on how many times a team got into the RZ? The team put up a ****load of points this year, but with the speed in our league (and not so great Ds) I wonder if teams were breaking huge plays off for TDs.

    A lot of this year's offense was defensive. They were trying to rack up plays and long drives to keep our defense off the field. I think there were a lot more big plays to be made and we'll see a significant uptick in explosive plays (20+ yards) in 2015.

    Considering the pieces and the inexperience, masterful job by Lindgren this season.

    Biggest improvement I noticed over the course of the year: short yardage running. We went from a team that couldn't gain a yard against CSU or Cal to a team that Utah's DL couldn't stuff. Credit to Bernardi there, too.
