Drive Starts From Last Night

Recommended Posts

I'm not one to preach about Special Teams bc I think it's overrated by old school coaches and it's certainly not an "equal phase" of the game.  That said, when everything from that phase of the game goes against you in one game, that can be a real problem.

Our average drive start last night was the 14 yard line.  Only on the last drive of the game did we have a better start than our own 25...we took over at our own 31.  And that's equal parts shitty kickoff returning, good punting by Tennessee, and a defense that can't force a turnover.

On the other hand, the Titans average starting field position was their 46 yard line.

For me to notice this, it had to have been one of the biggest disparities that I've ever seen.  You won't win many games like that.
