Compiled the comparison through 11 weeks of the 2011 Packers defense to the 2012 Packers defense.

Only category that we have regressed... # of picks. Otherwise, it is improvement across the board.

*edit.. we have given up one more rushing TD to date. We are screwed. [aiee]

In the time-frame when Reggie White was out there, I remember honestly looking forward to our defense going out on the field, largely just to see what the hell was going to happen next, and in a good way, 99 44/100% of the time. That was a good feeling to have. A tough standard to live up to, but damn it felt good to be a gangster.

THAT difference between pre- Reggie and post Reggie felt profound, to me. I love a guy like Clay, but he didn't come to a sucky-team like Reggie did.

Great stuff, your statistics, thanks a lot for sharing. Even more impressive having in mind which bunch of guys put those numbers together compared to last year.

Interesting chart, would be nice to see a similar one at the end of the regular season. One question, is Sack % calculated as sacks/defensive play or sacks/passing play?

Sack % = sacks/(pass att + Sacks)

I'll bet the number of big plays has been cut back as well.

edit- this year GB has given up 38 plays of 20 yards or more. 5 of 40 or more.
I don't have the numbers after 11 weeks but for all of 2011 it is 80 & 12. Looks like they will finsih well below last year.

A very big part of that is greatly improved tackling, especially in the cornerback position. Plenty of those 20 or 40 yard gains started out as 10, 15 yard gains until someone whiffed on a tackle or tried knocking the receiver off his feet instead of wrapping him up.

Interesting to note though that the opponents QB rating is lower this year even with the decreased # of picks.

I love it when Packer players prove me wrong!!!!

This is what I posted day after the draft this year.

"Day after draft, I'm gonna stick with my original prediction.
Ted was busy in this years draft, Hitting on position of needs the 1st 4 picks.
As it is at this time every year there is hope that the rookies will come in and give an immediate upgrade.

Perry has the best chance to start.

Worthy and Daniels should get some rotation work, but don't see them as 1st year starters.

I like the Hayward and Mcmillian picks, but don't see either making a big splash the first year."


Pack93 that's a great breakdown.

You pointed out the drop off in interceptions so far this year, will be curious to check that stat at end of year, seems we have at least one "Ball Hawk" DB who is now a very important part of The D.

Buckeye, I think I'm going to start asking you for advice - and whatever you say, I'll do the opposite. [grin1]

It is interesting when you compare stats to the rest of the league.

Passing Defense:

The Packers are 3rd in opponents completion %

3rd in sack yardage

4th in sacks

6th in opponents passer rating

6th in INT's

9th in opponents yards per pass attempt


As for rushing defense, it slipped in standings Sunday.

16th in yards per game

25th in yards per attempt

But their opponents rush against them the 9th fewest times.
