The Washington Times - September 22, 2008, 03:56PM

Here’s an abbreviated version of the statistical breakdown from Saturday. The full play-calling breakdown should return next week when I have all my files and templates shifted to my soon-to-arrive laptop.

One number that is worth calling attention to: Chris Turners performance on third down. The junior is 20-for-26 for 254 yards and a score on third down, good for a passer rating of 171.68. The yardage might not be Chase Daniel-like, but the completion percentage certainly is.

Something else that merits a mention is the percentage of throws to Darrius Heyward-Bey. The junior was targeted on 23 out of 95 passes in nonconference play, or nearly one in four. That’s probably about right. Go below 20 percent and clearly the offense’s top threat isn’t involved enough. Inch too far over 25 percent and things get a bit too predictable.

That should be considered one of the early successes of the Terps’ offense.
