What is this seasons comp. % taking last year out of the equation? 67% still pretty high but down from the average they used and 6% down from last year. I like the trend we have seen so far and think it will continue. I just don't like the article using last years numbers plus this years when it involves two completely different staffs.

Keep in mind that last year, at least, our defensive strategy was to allow short passes, make the tackle, and not give up the deep ball. Clearly that strategy did not work well, but it does allow for a higher completion percentage against us.
I agree this is still a problem and we need to get it down, but this should be taken into consideration.
