That is one of those stats that mean a lot for a team!!

I guess that's why we carry two fullbacks. Hall is a beast on special teams...

This is huge progress, helps the defense out a lot.

Morestead has been amazing this year, he is now at Lechler's level for sure.

Good read and its about time we turned that around. Theres another important stat we're #1 in as well but but I can't think of what it is right now.

Other than the Cobb return in week one the special teams have played very well.
Quote:

Payton specified for the first time that Strief's injury is a sprained medial collateral ligament, and he estimated that he's two to three weeks away from returning.
That's good news.
Thanks for the article.
Good stuff by Mike Triplett.

Didn't know that about the punt team. Very encouraging....

They seem to be getting down the field alot faster, last week in Jacksonville the first time we kicked it to them I think the returner was about 4 yards deep and as he brought it out to his 5 yard line 2-3 players were already in his face, thats the kind of hustle we need - and to just wrap the ball carrier up, dont worry about big hits
