Leading the league in 3rd attempts to win 10yds means nothing to me, except that we can't move the chains sooner, either due to penalties, poor execution or poor play calling

TOP is more an indication of defensive performance than O performance, particularly if TOP doesn't translate into pts scored. This is easily demonstrated by the rankings of the Steeler's O and D.
