Saints' Defense By the #s. All Stats.
 
OK y'all.


We are the #24 def in yds allowed.
NFL Stats: by Team Category

We are #4 of 16 teams in the NFC in POINTS ALLOWED!
NFL Stats: by Team Category

We are #13 of 32 teams in the NFL in POINTS ALLOWED!
NFL Stats: by Team Category

I am trying illustrate that when TV and internet "Talking Heads" rate a defense, they use the yds allowed stat exclusively.

VERY MISLEADING!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I agree, it is misleading. I just don't like the amount of yards we give up, it's to many.

Perhaps.

We will see, starting on Sat.

13-3 is a barometer of future success that is cool with me.

8-0 to finish the season is pretty cool too.

How many of those yards are in garbage time?

Danno 01-05-2012 05:32 PM

Bend but don't break?

Thats odd for a GW defense but thats kinda what it looks like.

Of course, when you're up 3 scores and playing prevent, you give up a lot of yards.

But I also remember several games where we gave up a zillion yards in the 1st half, but completely shut our opponent down in the 2nd.

This defense is skitzo. I don't know what to make of it.

Well traditionally this is a game of yards.

Its a good yard stick to rate your unit by how much field you give up. You want to back your opponent up to give them the length of the field to score.

Our offense makes up for our poor Defense. We score a lot of points and that goes against other teams stats. Our D doesn't have to play the our O thank goodness!!!

i thought it was a game of inches.

3rd Down defense

Red zone defense

That's where we make a difference in this playoffs
