  • a look at our defense stats

    we are #2 in nfl in turnovers 2 behind chicago tied for 3rd in sacks. we are 24th in rush defense and 30th in pass defense and we are 29th in yards against and 25th in yards allowed per game. you would think being 2nd in nfl in takeaways and 3rd in sacks we would be higher then 24th and 30th. whats the problem why are we giving up so many yards

        Thats exactly what I would expect. The defense, while capable of the occasional big play and turnover gets driven on easily the other 95% of the time they are on the field.

        Before people say its because they're tired from the offense not producing, this D gets driven on EARLY, often.

          4 games giving up 140+ yards on the ground

          this sets up a domino affect

          stop the run and the pass will follow

            Bend don't break, read and react, ect. We haven't had a bunch of points dumped on us, but we give up the yards.

            Also, the offense needs to start cooking or the defense is on the field more and getting more yards against them.

              The defense has given up huge scoring plays in almost all their games.

                Oh, and another defensive stat, we are 3rd in the NFL in turnovers since 2004, when TC joined the club. Pats have 2 more and the Bears have 32 more.

                    Me too.

                    The sad thing is it would work if our offense could put on a drive worth a damn...

                      That too. The reason why it's so annoying id because it KILLS time of possession, therefore our offense has to always hurry up and perform miracles since the defense can't/won't stop anyone.

                          I don't think there's enough talent on all levels of the defense to play a smothering/shut down style like the 49ers, Bears, or Steelers. Whether you think Boley or Chase is our best LB, they don't even compare to some dudes on other teams. There isn't enough talent and experience throughout our CBs to have a top pass defense and while KP is great at coverage and SB is great at generating turnovers, it's sort of countered with how bad Rolle is when he does anything that isn't stopping the run. I'm always amused when opposing fans say the Giants team is all Defense when we are just as bad as the Patriots or Packers were last year in terms of letting teams move the ball down our throats.

                            I disagree. The talent is there. The coaching isn't. If somehow Spags came back here, you sould see this. Did you see him blitzing like a madman vs the Eagles?

                              I don't see how anybody here is surprised by those stats.
                              I mean when our D takes the field it's usually

                              1.) Play for strip sack first
                              2.) Play for INT second
                              3.) Give up huge chunk of yardage on one play

                              We have been able to win by letting #3 happen numerous times throughout the game as long as we sprinkle in #1 and #2 here and there. It's really just a Vegas defense.

                              It's exciting to see, but at some point we have to wonder how much even worse this defense would truly be if they had to rely on COVERAGE first and pressure second...
