Offense:

#2 overall in yds per game
#12 overall in pts per game
#1 overall in yds per play at 6.9
#23 in offensive penalty yards per game
#7 in 3rd down efficiency at 44%
#32 in Time of possession at 24.58
#1 in yds per carry at 6.1
#10 in plays run from scrimmage
#1 in plays from scrimmage per minute
#1 in yards gained per minute

Defense:

#32 in yards allowed per game
#31 in pts allowed per game
#26 in 3rd down efficiency at 44%
#26 in yards allowed per play

I think this shows how absolutely horrendous our D is and how, despite our record, the offense has played pretty well

Yeah but some people around here claim the defense isn't as bad as it looks...

Everyone expected the D to be, at best a work in progress. Not many people voiced optimism that the defense would be good. Most hoped for average.

It's still early and there's still hope for improvement but it's becoming more clear where the off season work needs to be directed. They desperately need 3-4 scheme players.

Just one delusional person that I can think of. Our D is pathetic.

This.

We have some decent 4-3 players, but they're lost in a 3-4 scheme.

If in a couple of years we have a strong 3-4 defence then the growing pains may be worth it, but right now I remain to be convinced.

Before the season, I think the consensus was a top 5 offense and a bottom 5 defense.

Looks like we were overly optimistic on both fronts.

Only because they've managed to be worse than they actually look.
