Sacks Vs Ints


Recommended Posts

Everybody is getting riled up about the Seahawks sack numbers. Let's remember one thing: last week, we put on a clinic of how to force INTs. The Seahawks are showing how to get sacks. We were up more than 7-0 at halftime.

The Packers have a poor OLine and the Seahawks have a good pass rush. They are capitalizing just like we capitalized on Peyton's weak arm and lack of WRs. I like INTs more than sacks.

It's all relative to the situation. If on 4th down a QB attempts hail mary downfield and it gets picked off at say the 20, then it's essentially the same result as a punt. In that situation a sack would be preferable.

In general though I would rather have an INT than a sack.

A good defensive back knocks that ball down on the 20 and they take over at the line of scrimmage. Only an inexperienced back or stat hound picks that ball.
