    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
    FUTURE NFL STAR



    through 9 games

    22 rushes for 245yards 3td
    35 pancake blocks
    42 tackles 3 sacks (3 td saving tackles including final tackle as time expired to clinch win, hit of the game 9/14 )
    8-0-1 record///// invited to play in tiny mite bowl and beat the team we tied in regular season

    Stats are fun.

    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...
