Will there be a drop off in production from the 2018 #Bears defense to the 2019 version? It's possible, but it's not a given.

A Thread ⬇️

In 2010 the Ravens defense was ranked 6th in DVOA, and in 2011 Chuck Pagano took over as defensive coordinator and it improved to 1st.
In 2010 the Ravens defense allowed 319 yards per game (10th in the NFL) and in 2011 they allowed 289 ypg (3rd) with Pagano as the new play caller.

#Bears
In 2010 the Ravens’ defense allowed 16.9 ppg, and in 2011 with Pagano as the new defensive coordinator they allowed 16.6.

BUT

If you take away the 3 return TDs and the 2 defensive TDs they allowed from the total points, then Pagano’s defense only gave up 14.8 ppg! #Bears

I wanted to share some of the interesting statistical #Bears nuggets that were shared with us from our friends over at @IE_NFL.

This is going to be a lengthy thread.

1) They are 12-3 when allowing less than 5 yards per rush this season. That's tied for 2nd best in the NFL.
🐻⬇️
2) According to @IE_NFL the #Bears have averaged 47.8 Penalty Yards per Game this season which is 5th best in #NFL.

3) The Bears are also 5th in the league by running the ball on 44.9% of plays in 2018.
4) I've talked about the good #Bears pass protection all year, and @IE_NFL has them allowing a QB Hit on just 6.1% of dropbacks this season, which is 3rd best in #NFL.

All their nuggets weren't in Chicago's favor, so some bad ones will be sprinkled in. The thread continues ⬇️

I'm going to say this once, because it's Christmas and it's a rant.

I don't care what Pat Mahomes does, or Deshaun Watson, I'm not interested in comparing them, or second guessing Ryan Pace anymore...

We've had a shit show team for several years now, we've had QBs who are
either ineptitude, or a talented narcissist who is uncoachable (see turnover).

We've been the whipping boy, the laughing stock & a source of amusement for others...

But this year, and for the foreseeable future we have a GM who knows talent in coaching & roster.

We have a HC
who had transformed the culture in a single year, introduced parts of a complicated offense which he's made fit to our team, he's improved players who last year looked bad.

We have a defense that is the envy of the league, & an offense in its infancy which can score on anyone.

This morning, I called this my favorite stat this year. But then I thought that was an exaggeration. It's my favorite stat for the #Cardinals.

Here's my favorite stat for every other team. #Thread
#Falcons in 2016: 1.57 TDs per FG attempt
2017: 0.85 TDs per FG att
#Ravens
Joe Flacco was 7th in pass atts in 2017, never threw for 300 yds, averaged <200 per game.

I wanted to wait a bit for things to settle down before assessing what the #Bears accomplished over the past three days from the draft to undrafted free agency.

Here we go.
1. I love how Ryan Pace altered his approach to the early rounds. He shifted to targeting more proven players who were highly productive and experienced in college. #Bears.
2. Roquan Smith is a stud. He was my favorite defensive prospect and I knew he'd make such a good fit for the #Bears. Vic Fangio is a former linebackers coach who's overseen Ray Lewis and Patrick Willis. His push for Smith should be considered gospel. #Bears

And now I present: a thread based on my love of #science, #scicomm, and #animals, and the fact that I'm a huge #nerd:
1/?
The other day at the library, I got this book by Ann Tompert for my 2yo (2/?): amazon.com/Just-Little-Bi…
The premise: an elephant and a mouse want to ride a see-saw. #Physics has other ideas, so some other animals come to help. (3/?)
