Favorite Defensive Stats

11 November 2013 - 08:16 AM

Figured I'd start to collect our favorite defensive stats from this year. Mine is about recovering from turnovers.

 

We've had 13 turnovers this year, and we've given up 13 points off of turnovers. That's the 2nd best in the league behind KC, which has given up 10 points off of 8 turnovers. 

 

It shows just how resilient this defense has been even when put in tough situations.

 

Oh and in the past two games we have given up 0 points in the 2nd half.


NFC South: Devoid of Clutchness

14 October 2013 - 06:22 AM

After Saints blew one late, the NFC South now has a combined record of 1-8 in non-division games decided by 7 points or less (the Saints won 2 against the Bucs and Falcons). The one win was the Falcons vs the Rams 31-24 where the Falcons blew the Rams out early, and they managed to get back in late. The losses:

 

Panthers vs Seahawks 12-7 (DWill fumble on go ahead drive in the 4th)

Panthers vs Bills 24-23 (Gave up game winning drive in last minute of the game)

Bucs vs Jets 18-17 (Gave up game winning drive in last minute of the game)

Bucs vs Cardinals 13-10 (Gave up 13 points in the 4th quarter)

Falcons vs Fins 27-23 (Gave up game winning drive in last minute of the game)

Falcons vs Patriots 30-23 (Falcons made a feeble come back late)

Falcons vs Jets 30-28 (Gave up game winning drive in last minute of the game)

Saints vs Patriots 30-27 (Gave up game winning drive in the last minute of the game)

 

Notice a trend? The good news is even though we suck in close games, so does the rest of our division, and we've still got 6 games against them. Just something to keep an eye on as the season progresses.

 

 

 

 


Coverage Map Week 5

We're actually getting a decent number of random coverage spots. I think it's just Fox stations deciding they wanted a late game rather than an early one, and we're it, but hey I'll take it. It's not that often I get to watch the games on over the air TV in the Boston area.


Make a Run at Dwayne Bowe in the Offseason?

26 September 2013 - 08:05 PM

Since it's a bye week, I figure we can speculate about random things. Who knows if KC would even be interested but...

 

Dwayne Bowe's numbers are way down this year, and he just doesn't seem to fit with Alex Smith. I get the feeling we might be able to pull off a Greg Olsen type trade i.e. a talented player who doesn't fit the team's current system.

 

If KC isn't going to use him, they could benefit by getting his contract off the books. Of course, I don't know if we'd have the cap space to make it work, but just imagine Bowe and Ginn on the outside with Smitty in the slot and Olsen as our TE.

 

Probably not possible, but a man can dream.... a man can dream.

 

 


Using Players Properly - Collective Coaching

23 September 2013 - 06:38 AM

I thought it was interesting how RR mentioned in his press conference about Shula taking input from the offensive coaches, Skipper et al.

This marks the difference between Chud and Shula. While Chud may be the superior offensive mind. Shula wants to put players where they're comfortable.

DWill on pitches with the read option (not in the middle where he is not comfortable on the read option). Tolbert and Cam on short yardage (not DWill like week 1). More designed runs for Cam. Ginn on go routes and reverses. Steve Smith lined up in different spots.

We'll see how it ends up, but it appears Shula is learning (through input from his fellow coaches) exactly how to use our personnel.
