Last week: 20 (+2) Record: 4-5 They’re the least likely of the three 2011 playoff teams who are currently 4-5 to go 1-6 and be this year’s team that goes from the playoffs to 5 wins or fewer, but I guess we can’t rule them out. They probably won’t be that team, however. That being said, they’re overrated. Yes, they knocked off Atlanta, but Dallas, Carolina, Washington, and Oakland also did so. They’re not nearly as good outside of their dome and their defense is still a joke. Because of their defense, they rank 28th in yards per play differential and 25th in rate of sustaining drives differential. They’re not a playoff contender. They’ll probably finish around .500 like they did in 2008, a very similar season (BountyGate scandal excluded). Studs RB Chris Ivory: Rushed for 72 yards (82 after contact) and a touchdown on 7 attempts, 5 broken tackles, caught 1 pass for 13 yards on 1 attempt RT Charles Brown: Allowed 1 quarterback hurry on 33 pass block snaps, run blocked for 6 yards on 1 attempt RG Jahri Evans: Did not allow a pressure on 33 pass block snaps, run blocked for 9 yards on 2 attempts WR Lance Moore: Caught 7 passes for 91 yards on 9 attempts on 25 pass snaps, 3.1 YAC per catch TE Jimmy Graham: Caught 7 passes for 146 yards and 2 touchdowns on 8 attempts on 24 pass snaps, 8.3 YAC per catch, 1 drop, 1 penalty CB Corey White: Allowed 2 catches for 10 yards on 4 attempts, 1 pass deflection, 1 interception, 2 solo tackles, 1 stop, 1 missed tackle P Thomas Morestead: 6 kickoffs, 6 touchbacks, 74.3 yards per kickoff, 20.0 opponent’s average starting distance, 5 punts for 250 yards, 1 inside 20, 3 return for 9 yards, 48.2 net yards per punt Duds LT Jermon Bushrod: Allowed 4 quarterback hurries on 33 pass block snaps, run blocked for 8 yards on 3 attempts WR Devery Henderson: Did not catch a pass on 2 attempts on 25 pass snaps, 1 drop SS Roman Harper: Allowed 6 catches for 81 yards and a touchdown on 10 attempts, 1 pass deflection, 5 solo tackles, 2 assists, 1 stop, 1 quarterback hurry on 4 blitzes CB Jabari Greer: Allowed 4 catches for 117 yards on 5 attempts, 1 pass deflection, 4 solo tackles, 1 stop CB Johnny Patrick: Allowed 5 catches for 57 yards on 6 attempts, 5 solo tackles
