But 2011 did not benefit more than 2006 from defense and special teams with respect to starting position and scoring offense.




fair enough then. but unknownnight is right that 2011 D and ST did make it easier than plenty other teams in the past especially if you count the number of TO's, opportunities given regardless if converted into points or not, and actual points scored by the D and ST, etc.

Really, you can insert the name HB for the D and ST's scoring of the 2011 season! Everyone knows the turnovers that came off the defense as well as some of the special teams for scores was a result of the one and only Mr. Tyrann "Honeybadger" Mathieu!!

Claiborne helped TM as well. Both were a force on special teams.

Those two alone went a long way in creating what that 2011 team was for most of the year.

Yes sir. I was just thinkin the other day had PP and some others(like P Riley, K Shep, and Brockers) stood for their senior seasons. You would field a defensive team of PP, Claiborne, Reid, and B Taylor in the secondary. K Shep, Riley, and Minters at LB. And Mingo, Mntgomery, Brockers, and B Logan on the D Line last season with Honeybadger at nickel. Can you imagine that? Most NFL teams don't have a defense that elite.
