33 sacks .....
...pittsburgh had a down year in sacks and still had 37
the pats D gave up an average of almost 100 yds a game more than pittsburgh
was anyone talking about the great 4-3 bears D last year ? the year before ?
how many times in the last 10 years have the 4-3 bengals D led the league in sacks ?
your cherry pickin stats to make your case . show me a CONSISTENT 4-3 defense ...not a bunch of one hit wonders.
and by consistent defense , i mean one that's in the top 10 in the league every year..... oh wait...that'd be dick lebeau's 3-4.
now go ahead and make your case for switching ....i'll be waiting.
A top ten d and still 8-8. Being the number one d is based on yards per game and if you didnt notice due to our lack of offense and terrible punting teams would normally start at the 40 or 50. Teams against us this year never had far to travel against us. So the whole number one thing is very misleading.
You woulnd want the bears d?! They produced the most points and that would of at least won us a few more games.
You cant always say we had the number defense to make a argument because it is very misleading our d did not look like the number 1 d at all this year.
