Secondary a major weakness

Mike Chappell points out that the Colts defense didn’t do so well when defending the pass:

Two sets of numbers speak volumes when the topic turns to the Indianapolis Colts’ secondary:

71.2, 103.9, 8: In order, that would be the completion percentage allowed by the Colts’ pass defense in 2011, the highest in NFL history; the passer rating by opposing quarterbacks, the fifth-highest rating allowed in league history; and interceptions by Colts defenders, tied for the fewest in the league last season.

We’ve discussed passer rating differential in the past and know this is an important measure unless you’ve got a sure-fire hall-of-famer at QB.

About Todd Smith

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
