2007 thus far - by the Numbers (A look at Stats)


Recommended Posts

Here is where we stand after 5 games:

(http://www.nfl.com/stats/team)

First the good:

Pass Defense -

1st in Ave Yds per pass (5.3)

5th in passing yards per game (179.4)

1st in QB rating allowed (62.7)

Rush Defense -

6th in rush yards per game (79.6)

t-6th in yards per carry (3.7)

Overall Defense

3rd in yards per game (259)

3rd pts per game (13.8)

t-1st in 3rd down percentage (31%)

Now the mediocre:

Passing Offense -

18th in yards per game (210.4)

14th in yards per pass (7.2)

26th in completion percentage (58.7) *cough cough*drops*cough cough*

t8th in sacks given up (8)

17th in QB rating (81.1)

Rushing Offense -

14th in yards per game (123.0)

t22nd in yards per carry (3.7) -- I think we are playing against many 8-9 men fronts

19th 3rd down conversion percentage *cough cough*drops*cough cough*

16th points per game (20.2)

16th yards per game (333.4)

We are a few mental mistakes (drops/fumbles) away from being a really good team. I think we need a vocal leader on the offense, who's gonna step up?

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,

when the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,

When the funds are low and the debts are high,

And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,

When care is pressing you down a bit,

Rest, if you must, but do not quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,

As every one of us sometimes learns,

And many a failure turns about,

When he might have won had he stuck it out;

Don’t give up though the pace seems slow—

You may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than,

It seems to a faint and faltering man,

Often the struggler has given up,

When he might have captured the victor’s cup,

And he learned too late when the night slipped down,

How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out—

The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,

And you never can tell how close you are,

It may be near when it seems so far,

So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit—

It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.

They need to put that in everyone's locker. Something, we are missing that x factor. A leader on offense. Maybe Old Joe can spark some fire in everyone again...

Our defense is once again at the top of its game. We have a Super Bowl caliber defense. The only thing we can hope for is the offense to fix these problems, get healthier, and be in the hunt for the playoffs at the end of the season.

If we get in the playoffs with this defense.

Anything can happen.

WERD...we have the #1 D in the NFC and #3 D in the league. The defense is NOT the problem!
