Important Stat: Turnover Differential

The Turnover Differential stat has been a strong indicator of whether or not a team is on track to become a SB champion.

Of the last 15 Superbowl winners:
- 13 were ranked in the Top 10 in T.O. Differential
- 8 were ranked in the Top 5
- Only one team (Giants) had a negative differential and were ranked 26th.

2010 Packers +10 / 4th
2009 Saints +11 / 3rd
2008 Steelers +4 / 11th
2007 Giants -9 / 26th
2006 Colts +7 / 6th
2005 Steelers +7 / 9th
2004 Patriots +9 / 8th
2003 Patriots +17 / 2nd
2002 Buc +17 / 1st
2001 Patriots +7 / 9th
2000 Ravens +23 / 1st
1999 Rams +5 / 9th
1998 Broncos +10 / 5th
1997 Broncos +10 / 4th
1996 Pakcers +15 / 2nd

In 2009, we had a TO differential of +11, were ranked 3rd overall and won the SB.

Last year, we had a TO diff of -6, ranked 23rd and lost in the 1st round as a wildcard.

This year, we're at -3, again ranked 23rd.
Thankfully, we have a great offense that keeps us competitive in every game we play, but I think our D has to really step up with some takeaways to take some pressure off the O if we're to make a real run at the SB.

Since I own the company, I have to hide in my office so none of my employees see me goofing of with this

I've counted. Our DB's have had their hands on and subsequently dropped 39 potential interceptions this year.

That's right. 39. Don't argue with me. 39. lmfao

The DB's should use some stick 'em and just take the ball with them. LOL.

Sorry I don't believe our DB's have even been close to the ball that many times let along had their hands on it to qualify as a 'should have had an INT'.

We are making up for the lack of takeaways because of our amazing 3rd down rate on offense. We have to start taking it away, that won't last forever.
