Some stats for a 3-7 team


Recommended Posts


I feel like this shouldnt even need to be stated but literally every team in the country has stats that are "skewed" by playing a few really bad teams. I get saying we havent done what was needed to win and that makes us a bad team. I'm sure most can agree on that, but the logic of saying take out the worst teams only works if you do that for every team. We played one of if not the toughest schedule of any team this year so saying we just played some bad teams and thats why our stats look better is either a fundamental misunderstanding of comparative stats or not looking at any schedule outside of our own.

True. Our record is what it is too. 3-7. 

Yes, it's the bizarre mismatch of the stats vs the record that's the main point of this thread. If we had worse stats or a better record, then it would be more understandable, but it's crazy that we've managed to lose while putting up those stats (or vice versa).

I hear you. But I remember we were putting up crazy stats in year 1 too and that was another losing record. So maybe it is not that odd. Maybe Frost is good at collecting stats but not scoring or winning games.

I know we've had this conversation 69,696,969 times, but here's what I think it all comes down to.

 

1. Kicking (and punting)

2. Red zone playcalling (affected by #1)

3. Two-minute offense

 

 

The kicking aspect of our special teams has cost us at least two games on its own. Our redzone woes are due in very large part to not being able to trust a kicker. Too many times we had to go for it on 4th in a situation where we shouldn't have, and walked away with nothing. And Frost/Martinez have, as far as I can tell, never once successfully operated a 2 minute offense.

 

We have other problems and deficiencies, but those three are a lethal combo that keeps us from winning games.

Our defense wasn't putting up stats in year 1 even close to what we're putting up this year. I'm curious what other teams over the years have had a similar season with being so close in every game but losing most or all of them. Can't think of a similar team off the top of my head.

There is nothing bizarre about the stats and our record, far to many times we had inopportune mistakes that resulted in our W/L record. That speaks to a discipline problem which should have been addressed by the coaching staff but apparently it's still an ongoing issue.

Weirdly (which is the point of this thread) we're able to rack up those stats before we get to crunch time, at which point we make those inopportune mistakes.

 

We're disciplined enough for about 55 minutes per game (or so). But closing out... nope. Can't do that.

You really don't see how weird it is for a team to have better stats in most categories than their opponents and yet be 3-7? Take a look at the OP.

Exactly.  Nobody is saying our record is wonderful or something we all should be proud of.  But, if you can take the emotions and frustration out.  The stats compared to our record is very interesting and crazy.

So you're saying we didn't make a single mistake until the last 5 minutes of each loss?
