Defensive Meltdown Watch 2010

Eugene Wilson doesn't allow every touchdown.  Above, Zac Diles pitches in but in a very cost effective manner.

And BAM!, just like that, we're back in the lead for passing defensive suck.  Well done, everybody!

Even though Mike Vick could only unleash a 103 QB rating against us, the Broncos' surprising stonewall of Matt Cassel dropped them below us.  Yet, that couldn't save Josh McDaniels' job?  Things that make you go "hmmmmm."  Numbers below the break.

Sadly, we still trail the 0-16 Detroit Lions squad for the worst overall DVOA in the past 20 years (lower DVOAs are better):

Team Year DVOA
DET 2008 29.2%
JUGGER-NOT 2010 25.3%
DEN
2008 24.7%
MIN 2000 24.4%
STL 2008 23.4%

 

For pass defense, though, WE'RE #1!:

Team Year PassDVOA
JUGGER-NOT 2010 47.2%
DEN 2010 46.1%
DET 2009 40.1%
JAC 2009 39.8%
BAL 1996 38.8%

 

Giving up first downs on 3rd and 19s doesn't really help your DVOA rating.  Nope.  Not at all.

To celebrate, this week's musical tribute is a shout-out to Frank Bush.  Couldn't have done it without you, bay-beee!!!!
