A sign of improvement?

As the season draws to a close, one area of heated discussion lately has been whether or not to fire Mangini and find a new coach. My position is probably already well known around here so I'll leave that be. What follows is a small amount of stats that show an area where the team has improved since last season. Could it be a sign of good coaching?

2009        FG        TD        PTS
CLE:        23        25        244
OPP:        30        41        377

We were scored 15.25 PPG and were outscored by 8.3 PPG.

2010        FG        TD        PTS
CLE:        22        28        262
OPP:        25        31        292

We scored 17.5 PPG and were only outscored by 2 PPG.

If we play to those averages against the Steelers it will look like this:

                PF         PA
2009:        244        377
2010:        280        312

Last year we drafted defensively in the first and second round and it's seemed to pan out. Caution: speculation ahead. If we can have that kind of draft this year offensively (say a WR and RT in no specific order) we may see the kind of improvement next year to our offense that our defense saw this year. I am all for the Hoheini Triumvirate staying as is.

 

1/3/11

So the new totals are 271PF/333PA and an average loss of 3.875 points, up from 2 flat... god that game was awful.
