No, I'm not leaving. Too bad.
People seem to have fun calling the Raiders Run defense "pathetic".
Well you're all pretty damn wrong.
The stats against Oakland's rush defense last year:
542 Carries, 2144 Yards, 3.96 YPC, 15 TDs - Which rank 32nd, 25th, 12th, and 23rd respectively.
Now let's establish one fact right here:
Oakland had the most rushing attempts of any team on them.
2144 yards is 134 yards per game. While that may seem bad, check this:
Oakland's YPC was in fact 12th in the NFL. They allowed less than 4 YPC, that' decent.
That TD business? It's funny that teams ran so much more on Oakland yet they scored more TDs through the air.
You guys want pathetic? This is pathetic. I'm sure you can tell which team it is.
519 Carries, 2768 Yards, 5.33 YPC, 20 TDs - Which rank 31st, 32nd, 32nd, and 31st, respectively.
