Default Causing fumbles

Were chilling out to NFL Total Access and noticed one of the rolling texts mentioning that Houston is tied for 1st in caused fumbles in pre-season by 4.

I'm thinking that's a good sign, and hopefully the result of the so-called aggressive defense

Hopefully that ranking will hold true throughout the year.

I didn't know that, and you're right, that is a good sign! I didn't get to see the game against the Vikes (working). Did we cause many fumbles in that game?

That is great. That means our guys are activly looking to strip/knock the ball loose and shows promise towards a great turover ratio for the season. Lets hope they keep up the drills or whatever they are doing, and hope its not a fluke.

Ofcourse we need to take that number with a grain of salt, it's pre-season after all and... well... not alot of statistical data to base it on. But I'll rather be tied first in pre-season that be #32

Meh, all 4 were against the Chiefs. We only recovered 2 of those fumbles.

OTOH, we've fumbled 7 times, only losing 1.

In the end, this stat means diddly.

Well pee in my cornflakes.

Sorry, I just promised myself I wasn't going to drink the Kool-aid this season until I began to see the results on the field. There have been a few positive things to look at, but the negative things have outweighed them by far. As of right now, this team is not ready for the regular season.

That's not negative. That's fact. I thought the same thing when I saw the stat scroll across. Two of those fumbles were not caused by us but more like the weather there in KC.

OTOH Mario caused a fumble against The Saints.

He did cause it, but it was ruled incomplete due to the "tuck rule". No fumble
