Ok, so I’m going to be polite because you’ve been on here a while. You’ve earned polite response. Congrats.

Overall defensive rankings are not your overall defensive rankings. It iis a global measure that really doesn't tell you much and only has a tangential relationship to the only stat s that matter which is points for versus points against on any Sunday. They are what they are. 

Simply enough. How does the NFL grade defenses? They use total yards which is really a quantitative stat. It tells you the what but not the why or how. where yards surrendered per play gives a much better understanding of how well you did based on the number of opportunities you had to defend.

(Before our last 3 weeks we were top 10 for total points surrendered and that stayed consistent.

Stats you can look at on defense are:

1, Total points

2. Qualitative stats like yards per play. 3rd down efficiency . Redzone TD efficiency, 

None of the the other stats matter. Anything more and you’re grasping for straws.

(2) Said this once and I’ll say this again. The reason for the drop off is really simple. Offenses  got film on our defense getting abused by New Orleans and gave offenses a blueprint to beat us.

Good post...
