Despite our offensive prowess on paper, I wonder if he is aware of just how much this offensive line is struggling? Do stats show the lack of focus and discipline this team seems to have. Lastly, I wonder if his stats consider injuries, especially those of the season-ending variety.
He is considering the run game. They have the running game ranked 19th. I think that is skewed from the Ravens and 1st Giants game.
Stats don't lie, but many times they give an incomplete look and can be misinterpreted. I believe he's looking at the metrics and has the right idea, but they may be skewed from the Baltimore game and perhaps overvalueing the strength of schedule.
I do think if we can protect the football, we can stick with teams with the defense and special teams. And if we can get some guys healthy, we have a shot. Problem is we already have 5 losses.
