No, not pulling your chain
Crazy right? Kenny J. Byrne of CHFF details our improvement over the past year, and it's pretty awesome to see the numbers line up with how we feel. Byrne is one of my favorite football writers, simply because he backs up what he's talking about with hard evidence. He's not always right--according to him, for example, teams should always draft for need--but he always logically supports his arguments. Could it be that the Kool Ade is spiked with some reality this year? I know I drink it every offseason, but it seems like this time there's a little extra sauce in there, right?
What was surprising to me was that our OLine was 8th on his Offensive Hog index (which could be due could be due to the low number of sacks we gave up on the OL), and that our Defensive Hog Index was middle-of-the-pack (which could be due to our middling run defense). Read the article, brethren, and let's reflect on the cold, hard, numbers.
