TGI Jef Posted November 25, 2006 Share Posted November 25, 2006 ...we have only forced FOUR turnovers off of fumbles this season. third last in the nfl (by the way we are last in total turnovers with 7) forced fumbles and recoveries are the result of 11 men going to the football. one man makes the tackle and the others strip/recover the football. more guys ball-hawking = more turnovers. when every player is not going to the football, that clearly shows a lack of belief in the system or - even worse - a lack of overall effort (which is clearly often the result of the former) the truth is that we could afford to give up a few of these long bombs if we could make the big turnover now and then. a lot of winning football teams have given up big plays before. but winning football teams cancel these plays out with big turnovers. tgijef Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
