Top 20 Defense

I haven't seen this posted yet and found it interesting. The article reads as follows:

We probably didn’t need the NFL to tell us this because it was pretty obvious.

But the league just made it official that the [url="http://espn.go.com/nfl/team/_/name/no/new-orleans-saints"]New Orleans Saints[/url] have the league’s worst defense. The NFL just put out its release ranking offense and defense through Sunday’s games and the picture isn’t pretty for the Saints.

They’re No. 32 in overall defense. They’re No. 32 against the run and they’re tied for No. 26 against the pass.

And the [url="http://espn.go.com/nfl/team/_/name/tb/tampa-bay-buccaneers"]Tampa Bay Buccaneers[/url] are right behind them. The Bucs are No. 31 overall. They’re No. 32 against the pass and No. 3 against the run.

The [url="http://espn.go.com/nfl/team/_/name/atl/atlanta-falcons"]Atlanta Falcons[/url] play Monday night, so their ranking is based only on what they did in the season opener against Kansas City. The Falcons are ranked No. 22 overall (No. 29 against the run and No. 18 against the pass).

Barely, Carolina has the only NFC South defense in the top 20. The Panthers are No. 19 overall (No. 27 against the run and No. 13 against the pass).

Offensively, the NFC South teams rank much better, with three in the top 10.

The Saints are No. 3 overall (tied for third in passing and No. 19 in rushing). The Panthers are No. 8 overall (tied for No. 11 in rushing and No. 8 in passing). The Falcons are No. 10 overall (25[sup][size="2"]th[/size][/sup] in rushing and fifth in passing).

Tampa Bay is No. 29 in total offense. The Bucs are No. 29 in passing and tied for 15[sup][size="2"]th[/size][/sup] in rushing.

Dammit, why did we have to lose to Tampa! Good to see our early top-10 offense though, and hopefully the defense will get better each week, specifically the pass rush.

Bad game plan...


I think we will crush them in Charlotte.

Hilarious how the Bucs are #3 against the run, basically because we stopped running and had only 10 yards. A shining example of how dumb it is to keeps stats with a sample set of 2.

2 games after the start of the season we had 900 yards passing or thereabouts. I don't think we can start looking at rankings until we have a respectable sample size first.

All that offense even with the 10 rushing yards we had last week

Thanks for the insight, I wasn't aware of my rule violation, but much to my defense, I didn't hide the fact that it was a copy and paste and even gave the website from which it came. Again, thanks, I will keep that in the back of my mind on future threads and posts...
