    WOW! That is the best news! Congrats to Capers and his band of defending warriors, ferocious!!!!

    I don't think that stat will change tonight, at least for us. MNF is Eagles and Skins. Packers should still be #1!!! :happy0005:

    PPG is good, but not a total picture because it's based on just points. I like to look at Defensive efficiency at football outsiders based on DVOA*

    We are 4th on that list for total D.
    3rd pass D
    23rd rush D (eew, although I believe we are playing MUCH MUCH better run D now then earlier in the year which skewed the ranking)

    FOOTBALL OUTSIDERS: Innovative Statistics, Intelligent Analysis | 2010 DEFENSIVE EFFICIENCY RATINGS


    *DVOA is a method of evaluating teams, units, or players. It takes every single play during the NFL season and compares each one to a league-average baseline based on situation. DVOA measures not just yardage, but yardage towards a first down: five yards on third-and-4 are worth more than five yards on first-and-10 and much more than five yards on third-and-12. Red zone plays are worth more than other plays. Performance is also adjusted for the quality of the opponent. DVOA is a percentage, so a team with a DVOA of 10.0% is 10 percent better than the average team, and a quarterback with a DVOA of -20.0% is 20 percent worse than the average quarterback. Because DVOA measures scoring, defenses are better when they are negative. For more detail, read below.

    btw, our Special Teams efficiency is 28th in the league! You can't win Championships with bad special teams.

    Vick running on us for 100 yards doesnt help.

    I don't care if we give up the most passing yards and the most rushing yards. If we give up the least amount of points, thats where it matters.

    The rushing yards is definitely skewed from Jenkins/Pickett injuries and from QB scrambles.
