Of these stats, which is the most important for Titans to do well for a successful 2013?
TOP has been a killer for the Titans for a few years now. Wears hard on the defense. in the end I would say turnover ratio is probably the biggest. And it also impacts TOP.
I went with Jake Lockers passer rating. It is hard to say though. A lot of these stats are inter related. Time of possession is really influenced by all of these other stats.
Defensive sacks for me. It doesn't matter how good your secondary is, if you give the QB all day, any D will get picked apart. I'm mostly worried about Jerry Grey sending 4 the entire game, giving the QB all day to throw.
There's only one stat that is related to points, so I chose Red Zone efficiency. The rest don't score points, and that's how you win.
One that is not listed which is very important will be defensive third down efficiency.
I will take all seven of these choices Alex. These are the days of the old Houston/Tennessee Oilers in transition, just a bit more talented.
Future is bright, as well as my girlfriend's headlights!
Passer rating includes TD passes
I voted 3rd downs. I can't begin to count how many 3 and outs we saw last year which resulted in late or no momentum at all. If we can sustain drives then we can at least look for a field goal.
I went with Time of Possession because, hopefully, that means the Titans are converting third downs, the offense is playing well (both Jake and CJ) and they're on the good end of the turnover ratio.
