    Defense ranked 30th pass yrds/game

    Does anyone else think that our pass yrds/game is deceptive? Our D is ranked 30th in pass yrds/game at 245.5, which is worse than the Jags D at 234.0.

    I personally think our secondary is better than that. I think they will step up this week and show everyone that they are still Pro Bowl players.

    very deceptive - if you cannot run on us, you will pass and we are 8th in QB rating - which is more indicative of pass D efficiency: http://football.espn.go.com/nfl/stat...on=2&year=2003

    Heh. If that ranking is correct, that is one of the most deceptive stats I've ever seen. The last two games, our pass D has been lights-friggin' out.

    Despite the bad stats I don't think that teams facing us think that we have a bad passing defence.

    Miami has one the best secondaries in football and the last 2-3 games they have create a lot of turnovers because teams were forced to throw the ball more. Like Dolphan39 said it's more a statement about their strong run D than a weak pass D.

    we are 30th, but since we are 3rd ag the run - http://football.espn.go.com/nfl/stat...on=2&year=2003 - that makes sense. The 7 picks make up for the yardage

    Concentrate on the important stuff.

    Our defense is allowing 10.25 points per game. If you toss out the Houston game as an abomination, then the defense has been allowing more like 7 points a game over the past 3 games.

    The D is lights out awesome. The best defense in the league. Vinny Testeverde tossed the ball all over the Ravens defense the year they won the super bowl...he had like 500 yards or something. Yet it didn't bring the Jets much closer to winning that game, and the Ravens had one of the best defenses in league history

    Honestly, most of those yards came from weeks 1 and 2. And look at the Giants game. We were up 23-10, of course they went on a passing frenzy.

    A lot of these yards come in the 4th quarter when teams are trying to play catchup.

    Exactly right. And we are #1 in points allowed and #1 in red zone defense. I will gladly take an 80 yard passing drive that results in 0 or even 3 pts vs a time consuming and energy draining rushing drive. Which brings up my other point. The offense is #5 in time of possession. Our O is keeping our D fresh and keeping the other offense off the field. One of the main reasons that Dan Marino had those 40+ 4th quarter comebacks is that we could never control the flow of the game. Now we can count on a 6+ minute scoring drive and our D in the 4th to seal a victory. Not the easiest thing for us to watch, but a win is a win.
    "Three wise men are following a star through the desert.The star stops over a little village and begins to shinebrightly on a barn behind a small inn. They walk into the barn and find a little baby lying in a manger.As they approached the manger, one of the wise men walks into a plough and smashes his knee on the handle and in agony yells out "JESUS CHRIST!" A voice came down from above and said "That's a good name, I was going to call him Roger."
