The figures against the pass

Posted by Chris Brown on October 28, 2008 – 4:28 pm

Injuries have really, really hurt Buffalo’s secondary. It’s forced them to shuffle the lineup at corner, safety and in the subpackages and it’s likely forced defensive coordinator Perry Fewell to take a different approach to his play calling at times. Aaron Schobel’s absence from the pass rush has also hurt.

Here are the figures following week 4 compared with the figures since then (last 3 games) that I wrote about on the home page.
