Red Zone %
Offense - 25th
Defense - 18th
When the Offense moved to the red zone we were kicking field goals instead of TDs in weeks past. The Defense needs to tighten up a little more in the RZ also. Although, the argument can be made that our Def. RZ% is 18th because opposing teams don't make it to our RZ very often!
I think the last few weeks, excluding the Bye week, the Offense has gotten better. We're now 10th in Off. Scoring. Maybe they're "gel"-ing or maybe Rivers is getting more comfortable. Idk.
I've been a fan for 20 years and haven't seen our Defense this good (2007 was close). Going forward to the playoffs I believe the RZ% will become crucial and needs to be addressed. That is where playoff games are won/lost(FG vs TD)
I agree about not giving Andrew more props. Dude put his body on the line year in and year out behind a putrid offensive line. It’s on Grigson and Pagano as to why he’s already retired. As for Rivers, I was skeptical of that signing. It’s been a lot more good than bad. I’ve said it many times before on this forum. I have a lot of faith in Ballard. He knows what he’s doing with this organization
