We have to get that total offense number up a wee bit, I think the return of Willie will help out immensly and the emergence (be it one game) will help out alot.

The penalty thing worries me a tad. I know we had some BS calls against the Jags (see Harrison), but alot have been deserved. Seem to be getting alot more false starts, but noticed alot happen in the no huddle, so hopefully that will right itself.

Besides that, happy with the record, have to find something to do Sunday!

I think after the Jags game and the game showed we do have a threat offense and the ranking will only go up from there. The only reason were ranked 27th is due to the 2 the eagles game and Ravens game.

Wow...our offense really needs to step it up. The numbers don't lie.

Thumbs up to our defense though :thumbsup:

best stat....

4-1 record

no worries about the offense, we have seen them play and they haven't been that bad. and that defense always helps the offense. they have their back

penalties are too high though....

Need to get that offense up there, should be in the top ten. But with that O-line its easier said than done.

Plus they need to cut back on the penalties.

I thought stats weren't allowed on this board...the game is played on a GRIDIRON not on paper!

I think playing Phily and Baltimore's good defences as well as playing in a tropical storm in Cleveland have had a very negative effect on our stats.

(aside from 4-1)

Based off of those stats, I'd say the defense is carrying the team right now. Imagine if the offense gets it together.

Dang thats alot of penalties. Imagine ali those false starts had resuted in plays, heck we could have jumped up 10 spots in some O categories perhaps. Especially when the false starts happen on the no huddle plays (which they usually do) thats when we have the D on their heals.

Regardless my favorite stat so far is the 4-1 record, the win ain't got to be pretty, but false starts and most penalties can be avoided just by focusing.

O rank based on yards is a meaningless stat. we are always at the middle, or lower. the colts, bengals and saints are usually near the top, but their D always gives up an equal number of yards.

a better stat for the O is point differential - the % of points you win by. this is much like the stat of "yards per attempt" for QBs which is very teling.

The D penalties number is shocking.
