Ypp is a much better indicator of how good a defense is than points allowed. If the offense gives up a lot of turnovers a good defense will still give up plenty of points working on short fields. Vice. Versa for offenses that hold onto the ball. AR makes the Packers defense much better than it really is because he rarely turns the ball over. The Packers sieve of a defense usually has the benefit of working on a longer field.I vehemently disagree with your take that yards given up per play or game are even close to being as important as points allowed.
