    Nah, the real conclusion is that yards given up is a useless metric in deciding how good a defense is. (Same with yards gained and offenses).

    Yeah, the Packers D hasn’t been nearly as smothering as it was last year. But #30?! The Chiefs, Falcons, Colts, Dolphins, Rams, Raiders, and Panthers have all allowed more points than the Packers.

    And, in spite of two relatively close games, only 5 teams (the Lions, BIlls, Texans, Jets, and Patriots) have a better point differential (points scored – points allowed)

    I am not an opptimist here. If GB gives up 400+ passing yards this week, they will lose. The defense is a problem and it must be fixed, now. It is all on Capers to resolve it.
