Wow, there really is no pleasing fans on this board is there lol. It`s all criticism and worry. Nothing wrong with giving the team a pat on the back once in a while. Geez.

more like 4th place all by their lonesome... but hey, who cares about accuracy?

as per usual, yards allowed is a great indicator of points allowed, and theres a distinct correlation. once we start generating some turnovers, the PA should go down even further.

Notice that there are 3 AFC North teams in the top 5 of each of those categories...

Hope it stays that way. I understand the point that we haven't played a truly great QB yet but you don't choose your schedule number one and two in the past our pass D tended to struggle against young and unknown QBs. Contrast how we handled Blaine Gabbert yesterday to how we handled Colt McCoy last year for example. What we need more of is turnovers though. We're starting to get the sacks and pressure so hopefully we see more turnovers in the coming weeks.

i would say at least 75% of the time, when your d is ranked 1 in defense and 1 in pass d.. your gonna be doing pretty well.. except for the rare case like sd last year were your specials teams single handily loses you 2 to 3 games
