So, another thread today was talking about us outscoring some past years, and the popular vote for our first 50 burger (or Bonchie's 50 Taco) was this week against Atlanta. I also recall a thread about how few games above 42 we had, and that got me digging a little bit. Here's what I've found by looking at all of our total scores since Gilliam brought back the opening kickoff.

Our franchise average, including our ugliest and proudest moments (and the first 6 games this year) is 19.46/game giving up 22.13/game. We've done better in the Benson Era (21.69/game giving up 20.86/game). Best of all in the Payton Era we score 29.53/game giving up 22.53, besting our opponents by a touchdown on average. So including the Dome Patrol in our average, Payton is keeping us on pace defensively, but getting us an entire extra touchdown and field goal per game.

Defining big games as the trendy 40 Burger:

21 40 burgers served, 4 this season, and 8 of them under Payton.

If we hang 52 or more against the beloved Falcons on Monday night, we'll have 290 points scored this season. If we got shut out for the next 9 games, we'd have scored more than our 19 worst offensive seasons (54 or more and it's better than our worst 20).

If we maintain our average of 39.67 pts / game through the Falcons, Pathners, Rams and Buccaneers we'd have 397 points. With shutouts the rest of the way it would be our 5th best scoring season ever, with 6 games to spare. (2006 - 413, 1987 - 422, 2002 - 432, 2008 - 463).

If we average scoring our low for the season (24) for the next 10 games, we get 478, just barely eclipsing last years total.

Of course, W's matter most now, and 3 or more playoff wins matter most of all, but since W's are rolling in we have a chance to glance at our scoring offense every now and then.

I just am dying for 8 or more TDs against Atlanta, I can't think of a better time in the regular season to set our franchise record than on the big stage against a division rival who really deserves it, since their franchise record is against us.
