Re: Great News for our Turnover Woes
It will be a very interesting article to read for sure.
I did realise he was referring to the bottom 4 teams of each year (which would typically be 4 different teams) but if this article was set-up an exercise in coaching id be very interested to hear why he thinks the improvement can't be maintained and the reasons some teams fluctuate wildly (San Diego) despite having a solid coaching staff.
If there were sound coaching techniques, and increased focus on turnover differential, I would ask why the coaching staff can't maintain a similar level of performance the next year.
Of course there are only so many turnovers out there and at the end of the day the balance over all 32 teams has to be +0.
I wonder if the same applies to the top 4 teams each year?
Do they experience a sudden drop off?
As San Diego featured in and around that top 4 mark for 2 out of the 4 years, maybe they do.
They've been great for a while now, three Super Bowls' worth of great. But only this season have the New England Patriots become The Show, the must-see team of stars, pretty boys and reformed bad boys. Suddenly, the Patriots are not simply great; they're compelling, fascinating, appearing to be almighty and a touch lawless.
The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
