If we can learn how to cover a TE watch out. Any stats on most yards given up to TE's?

You could probably get open against James Anderson, or juke him, or make him run around you if you are 300 lbs.

Also screen plays killed us. Find me a stat on that, can pretty much guarantee we are dead last in leauge at containing screen passes.

Id go off of pass yrds per game and completion %.

We were 13th in passing yrds a game and 32nd in completion %.

So not good by any stretch. We need to play tighter and not give up the easy underneath stuff so often.

Not to burst the bubble but the team also had the highest completion percentage against. Giving up the least yards per completion is kinda negated when opponents complete almost 70% of their passes. Our secondary was still bad.


It is, but it shows an ability to keep plays in front of you. Given that Naka was starting that alone is a miracle. Norman gave up a lot of catches, but the guy went down immediately.

That's fine but it's not very useful when the offense can just use shorter passes all the way down the field.

Like the Bears did play after play in their final drive to beat us.

Exactly. Giving up shorter passes is fine when you have a big lead or your defense is great at forcing turnovers. When the opponent completes 66% of their passes you are just taking time off the clock. How many games did that help us win last season? Yeah this stat looks nice alone, but looking at other stats (26th in opponent completions per game, 31st in opponent incompletions per game, last in opponent completion % per game, etc.) it shows the secondary isn't nearly as good as some people seem to think.

I wonder how much of that has to do with our inability to stop the run, and putting teams in a lot of 3rd and short situations. Hopefully the new DTs can help with that and really upgrade the defense.




Much of it has to do with little to no safety help and keeping the CB"s way off the receivers to compensate.

I'm curious to see a quarter by quarter break down of how we did against the short stuff because it seems like late in the game is when we gave up the most.
