2006 10
2005 28
2004 28
2003 14

Diat (...what's up, bro)?

The stats you quoted make me wanna :smileypuker: when I think of how bad Has-been and Venturi were at evaluating and coaching defensive players.

What a breath of fresh air this staff has been! :9:

That's good stats there. Although I think now we are going to see what we are really made of. Alot of these teams are going to give us a go, we have some key games coming up. I am interested to see just what we are made of and hope we avoid serious injuries. Cincy is going to throw the ball alot, they have a problem with the running game lately. In my opinion, Cincy, Dallas and the Giants will be our toughest game. The Giants have had quite a few injuries in key places. Strahan and Toomer are out Umenyiora is banged up as well as Sam Madison and Burress. I mean that is alot of injuries in key places.I think that Cincy is also having a melt down with all of these things going on with them, makes me glad Payton chooses high character players because going through adversity is a challenging thing for 16 games.

You also gotta remember that 14 of those points against us actually came on interception returns for TD's against Baltimore. So we are actually better. BDM
Depending on where he got the stats, that may or may not be factored in. And we're not the only team that's happened to, so 10 is as good an indicator is there is...
