We give up 1 yard more per play than every other team in the league.

We are probably on the field more, because of our weak offense. So...you should expect our numbers to be less favorable. ....
24th in sacks
26th in 3rd down conversions

Just so ya know.

Defensively, when you take into account that they are on the field too long, and too often, you should give the guys a break as far as points allowed, and yards given up. With what 7 sacks yesterday, we've got just as many sacks as any team in the league(21), there are 4 teams worst than us on 3rd down, & 14 teams in the league giving up at least 38.9% 3rd down conversions. One of which is Indy.

Honestly, I like our defense.....could see major improvement @ both corners, but overall, we're about mediocre in a mediocre defensive league.
I have long thought that players and coaches signed up for the message boards. Now this post proves it. Now way are you not a coach, player, or maybe even Cass himself. Only somebody who is in danger of losing there job would say that a third string QB from Harvard who has never ever thrown an NFL pass, ever, never ever, throws for 310 yards 3 touchdowns and didnt even start the game, would say the D isnt that bad.

Big whoop we got seven sacks, we forgot to stop the other team from scoring. A tad bit more important. I know we sit and complain about the lack of sacks and pass rush, but with an all out defensive collapse, sacks are nothing more than window dressing.

I will take that window dressing any day. To bad our offense forgot to score a TD on an awful defense in the second half as well. Team effort = Team loss.

NewOrleans, Cincinnati, and Houston, allow more than 41%
Pittsburgh, and Minnesota allow more than 42%
New England allows more than 43%
And Buffalo allows more than 45%

So we're 26th in 3rd down conversions......percentage wise, we aren't very far from other teams, some of which are elite teams.
Just so ya know.

I'd like to see the numbers for sacks, by the teams.....I'm betting 21 isn't that bad, compared to other teams. Yeah we may be 24th, but positions 15-23 could have 23 sacks for the year, in which case, the rank looks worse than it really is.

Yards/play, we are dead last........but the top 9 give up a little over 4 yards per play, from 10-31, teams give up over 5 yards per play. We give up 6 yards per play.

So on each defensive stand, each 3rd down, we're just as competitive, as most of the league.

Either get us a better deeper Rotation, or keep the offense on the field for a few more minutes each game, and our defense wouldn't look too bad at all.
