Steelers 2009 Offense Compared To 2008 Offense At Half Way Point


We looked at the defense comparison yesterday, today we look at the offense comparison, or in this case non-comparison. a few things that noticeable stick out is a nearly 10% increase in 3rd down conversions, nearly 100 net yards more per game, over a half yard more per carry in the running game and the well talked about completion percentage in the passing game. The few black marks are the fumbles lost, which has increased and the sacks are a bit high still, but are down and livable with. You can clearly see a huge improvement and hopefully this carries on the remainder of the season.
