    #1 Pass defense???

    Am I blind or did I just see a stat the we have the number one pass defense in the NFC in terms of yards allowed?

    I assume we can attribute this to being behind so much teams didn't have to throw against us.

    It's just kind of funny that we all know we had the worst secondary ever and we end up number 1.

    7th best pass defense based on yardage allowed and 31st best rushing defense. Yes, teams had the option of running the ball down our throats rather than passing.

    With the field position we were giving other teams. They generally only needs 40 yrds per touchdown. This stat is very misleading when you see how bad our O was.

    I agree with Barren

    If we have to accept the bad stats at face value, we get to take a little satisfaction for the good ones (or the one)
