Pretty good for a guy whose demise was reported 3-4 years ago.

I wonder if our close losses are a result of coaching, loss of key players to injury, or a combination of both? I tend to think that different coaching would have made a difference in most of those games.

I've never understood why they use YPG to rank teams. Maybe an NFL history buff will clue me in.

As Belichick once said, stats are for losers. Wins and losses is all that matters.

what's the difference between this year & last? We had the same coach making the same blunders last year.

Arian may just be worth 4 more pts a game, But it's hard to quantify b/c the 2 games we have won this year he didn't run it particularly well...and his best game before he went out was in the blowout loss against STL....plus Tate filled in very well for him last week....we ran it about as well as we have all season & we still lost by 3.

Once the losing slide gained momentum, it may have just been "intangibles" that turned it into a landslide. The Texans just had that losin' feeling.

Agreed. 7 losses by a TD or less. Heartbreaking.

Default The numbers 2006, 3 and 27

It was the last year (2006) that a team (Oakland) finished in the top 3 in total defense and finished dead-ass last. We have allowed 27ppg resulting is us being ranked 27th in scoring defense.

Guess not all defense is created equal. Also interesting, Pittsburg had the #1 ranked defense last year and failed to make the playoffs.

Turnover margin. In 2013 we're 31st(thank you Geno)/32. In 2012 we were 8th/32. QB throwing pick-6s is a killer.

Can't believe it took this long for somebody to mention the turnover margin. We went from top 10, to 31st in one year. Nothing will kill you more than turnover margin and it is the backbone of our collapse.
