Um, stats and games ARE part of it all. Top 10 defensive units generally don't allow opponents to have the best completion percentage against them in all the NFL. They generally aren't in the bottom half in points against, and they don't allow what occured to them against Atl, Tampa, etc.

So again, claiming they were a top 10 D just bc of yardage....is incomplete and I still don't get why people use that (including the NFL) as the ranking for a D.

So you are going to use stats like Comp% and points against, to enhance your point? Is that really fair? Dismissing stats in one post, then using them in the next.

 

We played a poo ton of teams that toss the ball around. That is going to skew your Comp% argument. We mostly played a soft zone designed to keep plays in front of you. Comp% is higher than normal in this circumstance. We played well enough to win. Isn't that the ultimate stat? Wins!

 

I like how you make 18th in the league in points against sound like they were bottom of the line. We were 25 points higher than the #13 team. Then we would have been in the top half of the league.

 

Yardage against is a good measure. It allows you to see where teams are beating you. Can you stop the run? How are you against the pass? How close are you to teams that do those things well? Lots of good reasons to use yards against.

 

You are stuck in the past, worrying and fretting over a D that wasn't as bad as you want to think it was. How our D played last year is no precursor to how they will play this year. A lot of folks are excited to see what we have. Come on and join us.

I dismiss using ONE stat....and only that.

it would would be like claiming the best passing offense is the one who has the most passing yards.....ignoring that perhaps they had significantly more interceptions than touchdowns in the air.

Need more than 1 stat.

On an unrelated note, it is hard to respond to you when you quote like that
