Do you think our pass defense is better than rank?

      On the flip side, we score an avg of 24.7 points per game, with 46 touchdowns (25 run, 18 pass).
      That trails Indy by 4 points and Cincy by 3 points.

      As long as our offense outscores points given up by the defense, we are in good shape

        Passing offenses often score more points.

        In the same way that our passing defense has had their numbers skewed by our leads, our passing offense has also been skewed.

        We rank 18th in the league in passing yards per game, but we rank tenth in yards per attempt. Of course, this statistic is also skewed by our leads. When you get a good lead, you do still pass, but you often pass to only get a first down. This makes your average lower, but we still rank pretty decently in the category.

        Anyway, I like our chances against either team.

        They've had the priveledge of playing the likes of San Fran(32), Houston(31), Tennessee(29), St. Louis(27), New England(30), Cincinatti(22), and Jacksonville(21).

        All of those teams rank 20th or lower in yards per attempt allowed. I'll give the Jags the benefit of the doubt, because they do a lot of other things well on defense, but for the most part, the Colts and Seahawks have had their stats padded.

          Far as I can see, we need ONE good speed rusher from DE.
          With that one addition, we could vault ourselves to the top, IMO.

            Courtney Brown

            It seems to me that our pass rush was better without Courtney Brown.Is Courtney Brown the reason our pass rush hasnt been good?

                  I agree that Courtney hasn't done a great job rushing the passer.

                  However, we've had problems rushing the passer for the last couple of years.

                  We had a couple of decent rushing ends (Berry and Hayward), but we were never dominant. In several games this year, we've had a very good pass rush. We just haven't been consistent.

                  Also, our defensive line has done a great job of playing the run. Sometimes pass rushers are overrated, because they can rush the passer, but can't stop the run at all.

                    I think we are better than our rank, but I still think we can improve. We have to step up our pass defense in the playoffs. It can be done with the players we have on the current roster.

                      And this is the whole point: If you can't stop the run, you will never be able to rush the passer, as the other team will never pass.
