No it was 2 ppg worse to date. Not a lot but it's a start.
What about yardage..............I dont remember Ryan giving up 600+ yardage games every other week.
You don't win or lose with yardage, that happens with points. It's part of the 'bend but don't break' stuff that seems to break at the worst times.
While I agree that points decides the game, there is a very strong correlation between yardage and points. The top offenses in the league tend to also put up the most yardage as a result. It is very rare to find a team that is ranked in the top 10 in yardage, but in the bottom 10 in points scored. Usually they go hand in hand.
Detroit had the ball for 35 minutes to our 25. ANY defense is going to be worn out by that, and going to give up more opportunities. Did they play well? No. But the offense certainly did them no favors by keeping them out there so long, and by not capitalizing on the turnovers they gave them. Notice Detroit scored 24 points in the fourth quarter. You can chalk it up to folding, or you can realize that yeah, eventually a beaten up defense is going to start collapse under those circumstances
Packers played the Vikings. My Packers friends are absolutely complaining about the OL injuries they have. My Falcons friend is whining about his WR and RB injuries. My nephew who is a Rams fan is lamenting his QB injury. They all know injuries are part of the game. They also know injuries affect effectiveness. Maybe you think a platoon of Kyle Wilber and Caesar Rayford is the equal of Demarcus Ware, but I don't. I find that thinking ludicrous
Injuries are not an excuse to be on pace to be the worst pass defense since the game of football was invented.
Besides, I dont remember Ryan getting a pass when half the defense was being signed off the street at the end of the season last year. However, he was held responsible for the performance of the unit.
God people making excuses for one of the worse Ds anyone on earth has ever seen, stop defending this old man, he is well past what prime he had and this is what we get.
Ginko Biloba. Supposed to be good for memory. All last year we talked about the injuries on Defense. I could have sworn you were awake and around. Maybe I'm wrong on that though.
My point is, what are you going to do, keep firing coaches?
Matt Barkley started for the Eagles, not Payton Manning
I agree on the TOs, but having said the results are 4-4 vs 8-8 ,go figure
