That tallies pretty well with what I saw; Carradine and Dial looked worn out after their heavy snap count against Baltimore and Okoye clearly hasn't been the same since he hurt his ankle. The Great Brit looked like he was stuck in sand versus the Charger

iI was quoting what Jason Lisk, Greg Cosell and others said about scheming one guy open. Even then, I felt it was something they did more before Crabtree returned last year, because we had to.

Because we've seen so little return from the 2012 draft class there is some leeway because we with have to sign any big contracts from that group.

True, it would get very difficult to work out who was playing when and what weight to give as a result.

A split end is easier to jam, if that's what you mean, so he will need to be able to get away from press coverage.

I agree with what you say in your first paragraph, FO's ALY stat values consistency and hates negative plays but it's really tough to achieve that when we've been facing more defenders stacked on the line than anyone else over the past two years.

I think there is some variation between the different data sets because it is a bit subjective, PFF seem to be more generous to the defender.

That's fair, I was really making the point that the Bears personnel is very different to the injury ravaged unit that they had for the second half of last year when they were pretty pathetic.

2012 also expected a regression in injuries, which cropped up last year, and they couldn't have predicted Kap arriving.

The Bears are pretty good. Their offense is one of the best and while their defense was awful last year they've overhauled the entire unit.

1984 describes the horrors of a totalitarian, authoritarian state, this issue has nothing to do with the state so using quotes from that book merely serve to reduce the level of the debate to hysteria.
