NFL Offensive RANK 8 -- NFL Defensive RANK 5


Recommended Posts

Okay, I'm getting tired of this "points are all that matters" thinking. This simply is not true.

Sure, points allowed is the most important stat. But if a team plans on playing "keep away" from opposing offenses, like ours does, yards allowed most certainly matters.

Low yards allowed usually indicates a defense that's hard to move the ball on. Any defense which is hard to move the ball on is also hard to score on.

Sure, if I have to have one or the other, I'll take less points. But it IS important to give up a low total of yards, too.

So you're saying you'd rather us be like the Chargers, who have only given up 1129 yards; yet give up 27.2 points a game? I'd rather give up 400 yards a game with 2 TDs any day... Hey we could even be like the Panthers and only give up 869 yards and allow 25 points a game...your logic is flawed.
