One things consistently asked about quarterbacks is how they perform in the redzone (20 yards or closer to their opponent's endzone.) After my write up on David Fales, I decided to look a little deeper into his specifics. Instead of looking at entire games, I focused on him in the redzone. Below are David Fales's game-by-game-stats within 20 yards of pay dirt.
Fales didn't see a snap in the redzone against Stanford, although he did throw two strikes for touchdowns from the 21, but after that, he threw at least one ball in each game the rest of the season. I didn't count the UC-Davis game's stats because they play FCS ball, and I just wanted to look at FBS opponents. His touchdown:interception ratio of 17:1 is pretty crazy.
David Fales 2012 redzone stats: 28 of 47 for 277 yards, 17 touchdowns, 1 interception, 3 sacks, and 1 rush attempt for 4 yards.
While some think that Fales will have a stat drop, due to San Jose State moving from the WAC to the Mountain West, he still put up 10 of 19 for 92 yards, 7 touchdowns, 3 sacks, and 1 rush for 4 yards against the five teams (Stanford, Colorado State, San Diego State, Navy, and Utah State) which he faced in 2012, and will face in 2013.
