Default we have the #1 ranked defense now

bengals needed 328 total yards to tie the steelers with chargers on total yards allowed

they have got 371 at the moment, as long as we dont do the shit we did against the browns earlier this year, we should finish with the #1 ranked defense.

5th time in 10 years, i think that's most in a 10 year period ever in the nfl.

01, 04, 07, 08, 10?

even if the stats don't show it, our D better than the Chargers. For the life of me I can't see how they were rated 1. Bengals rolled on them and Palmer actually looked like an all pro. Not to mention the Raiders put up 35 on them. Great to see River fail to make playoffs, tired of him being touted as the best thing since sliced bread. Take the stats, I will take the wins. Back to your post, that is impressive I agree.

I happen to believe and have always believed that our D is great, and Coach Dad is great and our D is the reason we are 11-4 this season. (We should be 13-2, our ST cost us 2 games)

yeah the chargers defense really sucks, but being #1 is for boasting and gloating to other fans

i think im wrong lol, the chargers should end up allowing 267 yards per game, but that leaves them 4005 total yards, we will be at 4200, if we keep the browns to under 250 yards per game that leaves us at 4450 total yards (278.1), if the broncos record 446 yards, we will be #1 by 1 yard lol.

We already have the #1 D for PPG. I think that's more important than Total Yards.

As everyone pretty much knows, our pass defense is what kills us. It's even worse without Troy as opposing QBs are more confident about throwing it downfield. If we had better CBs, the D would be # 1, period. We got burned by the Pats big time, and that needs to change if we're going to beat them for the AFC Championship.

i dont that saying the 2000 tennessee titans defense and 2006 baltimore ravens defense is better than the 2008 pittsburgh steelers defense, and the 2008 pittsburgh steelers defense overall was better than the 2000 baltimore ravens defense.

points per game is such an inflated stat with the turnovers in territory's pick sixes, special team touchdowns ect.

Pass defense has been weak all season, with or without him... Its actually been better without him.
