Default Re: Fewest Turnovers Forced Record is at Hand

Our talent level on defense is pretty bad. Take away the pick six Brian Cushing had Week 1 at San Diego and then we'd be at what, 9 turnovers forced with only one win this season?

That guy will certainly help in that department moving forward. I believe he and Watt could dominate the league together for the next decade. It would be a great start moving forward and maybe we can start to bring back that dominating Bulls On Parade defense we enjoyed back in 2011.

But just think about how we lost the caliber of elite defensive players the past few years: Mario Williams and DeMeco Ryans, both of which are having All Pro seasons for the Bills and Eagles this year, and to a lesser degree Connor Barwin and Glover Quin. The point being is we haven't replaced those guys with equally as good or better players.

Man, first the NFL's pick six record (both as individual player and as team), and now fewest turnovers forced record.

When the Texans tank a season, they don' just suck. They set new historically sucky records to ensure their infamy. Houston pro football teams have a way of doing that to us.

The pick 6 record was a burst of greatness. This turnover record took a full season of sustained effort. I'm proud of the kids.

That's right, no team in NFL history has been better at not forcing turnovers than our guys. Special shout out to Kareem Jackson who had fewer picks than McCain, Keo, and even Swearinger. Also can't leave out our linebackers who have done nothing all season outside of a couple of games outta Cushing. Way to go guys.
