The defence is often left in bad positions by the offence, It seems our D has many times come on after a turnover to really bad field position, which can skew this stat a bit. It also doesn't consider, 3 and outs - if the offence is going 3 and out all afternoon our D is on the field all afternoon, which means no matter how good they are they can ware down and give up some points. I think this skews it a bit too... especially in our case.
Like last year in Denver our D took a lot of flack for giving up the game winning drive to tebow - but watching that game our offence was terrible - the D was on the field all night, couple that with the short week and the altitude, they were really worn down, if our offence had not had so many 3 and outs I really think we would have stopped tebow and won that game.
We have a very good defence, it just gets no help from or offence which is among if not the worst in the league.
