Saddest Defensive turnover stat
Since 2006, no team has done what we have done and it isn't a good thing.

We force INTs (3rd)
We force fumbles (T-4th)
But we cannot recover a bouncing ball for shite (T-29th with 3 teams)

We force 19 fumbles, yet recover only 5.

No team in the NFL in the past decade has forced that many and only recovered 5.

Philly (2011) and Miami (2012) are the closest with 19 FF and 6 FR.


In terms of odds, luck will bounce our way when we FF in the playoffs. I mean we saw it vs Atlanta.

The problem with our team this year.....is that we are having trouble putting it all together at the same time. When the defense is playing well......the offense scuffles and vice versa.

Also the offense is a MUCH bigger problem than anyone wants to admit. The third down efficiency is a problem for this team, and it directly affects the defense.
There are significant stretches where the defense is playing pretty well, but they have to spend a lot of time on the field because the offense can’t convert on third down which leads to the defense wearing down.
It’s been talked about, but the (primary) reason for our 3rd down struggles are our lack of options. MT, AK, and MI are ALL we have and I’m definitely concerned about what that will do to us in the playoffs

This has been an issue for a few years. When watching the games you almost get that feeling that if we can get past 4 plays, we will score; but then we will have 2 short drives resulting in punts.

Even when they are generally playing very well the Offense seems to disappear for a quarter every game
