I went looking for the sack % numbers and started to compile some different numbers for reference, a couple things surprised me a bit.

1. I knew the Packers were giving up more sacks the the average, but 9 over the average mildly shocked me. Only three teams give up a worse sack percentage.. two being teams in the NFC playoff chase. That is a concern, but I would like to see how the run attempts, when we became more balanced, have improved that over the course of the season.

2. I expected our yards per carry to be much more off the NFL average than the 3.77 to the league average of 4.21.

3. I expected our completion percentage to be greater than 5.41% over average, but then considering the sack numbers, it is just as if not more impressive than I expected. That is one of the best cases for how special Rodgers and this passing game really is.

4. I love our play mix at the moment, just about 60/40 in pass ratio.

I hate Niner fans. (That has nothing to do with your analysis, but just wanted to say that).

1) Uncle [tt]'s #1 off-season priority needs to be OL. That % needs to be around 6.

2) 3.77 is inflated by [ar] and Cobb. Our RBs are probably closer to 3.4 or 3.3.

3) Would be higher if our receivers didn't have the dropsies.

4) 60/40 is about right.

They should be a factor. At least Cobb should anyways.. He took snaps at RB and gained almost a 100 yards thus far. I'd use the 3.77 as a basis. Who cares if it's the RB or [ar] it's still running the ball.

I was just arguing semantics with Pack93z. You're right, it really doesn't matter though.

When drafting players, a great deal of them are projects waiting to be coached up. Therefore, I think its time to quit pining for drafting more OL as that's been done. Rather, the demands need to be on a new OL coaching staff.

You really can say something intelligent once in a while, can't you?
