A couple of things jumped out of me across the whole season. The Hawks have been a team that lived and died by running and stopping the run the last few years. That has been turned on it’s ear this season.

  • In close wins (less than 7 points) and in losses, the Hawks allow an average of a full yard-per-carry less than in games they win by 7 or more. In English, that means their run defense is weaker in games they win by 7 or more.
  • The Hawks allow an average of 272 yard/game passing in their losses and 179 in their wins. That is a massive difference. If you look at the close wins + losses vs. their big wins again, the differential is even bigger (262 yards vs. 153 yards).
  • The YPA against in losses is 7.66 vs. 4.92 in wins. Wow.

All these stats seem to illustrate that we better stop the pass if we want to win this year. This adds some color to all those regurgitated stats about sacks in our wins vs. sacks in our losses.

Another stat of note is our pts allowed in wins vs. losses.

  • We give up 11 pts/game in our wins and 26 pts/game in our losses.

Lastly, this team is as schizophrenic as we all have observed. There are only four Hawks games all year decided by less than 7 points. When we win, we win by an average of 14 pts, and when we lose, it’s by an average of almost 10.

    Thank goodness for babelfish:

    Oi, I found its blog for google is well interesting I liked this post. It would like to speak on the CresceNet. The CresceNet is a dialed supplier of InterNet that remunerates its users for the hardwired time. Accurately this that you read, is paying you to connect. The paid supplier 20 cents for the moment of connection dialed with local linking for more than 2100 cities of Brazil. The CresceNet has a connection accelerator, that leaves its faster connection up to 10 times. Who uses broad band can also profit, is enough to register in cadastre itself in the CresceNet and when it will be to sleep to connect for dialed, it is possible to pay the ADSL alone with the money of the dialed one. In the schedules of only minute the expense with telephone is minimum and the remuneration of the generous CresceNet. If you I to want to linkar Cresce.Net(www.provedorcrescenet.com) in its blog I would be been thankful, until more and success.
