Team offense DVOA: 4th Team Defense DVOA: 31st Special Teams DVOA: 32nd Important Offensive Statistics:
Points per game: 10th (24.4) Offensive Points per game (points scored by actual offense): 7th (23.6) Yards per game: 5th (392.9) Yards per drive: 6th (34.7) Points per drive: 6th (2.13) TDs per drive: 5th (.252) Punts per drive: 11th (.387) TOs per drive: 21st (.135) Starting field position: 24th (26.98) Drive success rate (avoiding three and outs): 6th (.724) Red Zone attempts: 7th Red Zone TDs: 5th Red Zone TD percentage: 6th (58%)
Only thing that I will add is that over the last three weeks our red zone TD efficiency has been an amazing 90% :eek:
Important defensive stats:
Points allowed per game: 26th (26.3) Opponent's offense points per game (actual points defense allows): 27th (24.4) Yards allowed per game: 23rd (364.9) Yards allowed per drive: 30th (35.14) Points per drive: 31st (2.35) TDs allowed per drive: 29th (.262) Punts forced per drive: 31st (.345) Takeaways per drive: 20th (.124) Average starting defending field position: 19th (28.72) Opposing team's Drive success rate: 28th (.718) Opponents red zone attempts: 25th Opponents red zone TDs: 26th Opponents red zone TD percentage: 20th (56.25%)
The defense is creeping up most of these rankings and it looks like the team is starting to figure this defensive philosophy out. We just have too many injuries to overcome on that side of the ball and so we can't seem to make up too much ground.
5. Teeray: Offensive efficiency isn't offensive efficiency because I say so(even though EVERYONE else in the world says it is)
6. Continues to derail a good conversation.
PS: Your problem is you never actually add context to your drive stats. Which lets me know you know better, so it confirms you purposely do these worthless comparisons. You never explain how much they are affected by field position and turnovers and thus have little meaning in our team's situation.
Yes using 14 different stats including field position, red zone efficiency, turnovers, etc. is not adding context. So what is your definition of adding context?? What other stats would you like me to use?? I even put OYPP on there.
And please find me a credible advanced statistics website that uses OYPP for offensive efficiency?? Advanced NFL Statistics doesn't use it (remember the one you said was the undisputed best website for advanced statistics... until you realized you were looking at the wrong year and then tried to quickly dismiss them ). Neither does Football Outsiders. So again, your facts don't seem to be accurate that everyone in the world says it is.
The two best websites for advanced statistics don't use OYPP for offensive efficiency so......
Even you said OYPP "doesn't reflect your actual offense" (remember after the Detroit game?) so you don't even agree with it.
It is a part of being young and not having experience. I know it is hard for the fans but this thing will turn big time unless the players quit buying into the coaches. There must be patience as hard as that is for us as fans.
I am saying this now that I have cooled down, but there are 3 broken pieces of property laying around my house thanks to that meltdown Sunday.
