Three meaningful NFL statistics (and one meaningless)
Now that every team is at the halfway point of the 2011 NFL season (six teams have played nine games), a look at certain statistical categories is telling - some significant, and some meaningless in a good way - especially for the Seahawks.

    Turnovers and penalties......
    ...appear to be the personal progress indicators for this fan. A shock to the system after the Seahawks, under Holmgren, were the least penalized to where they are on the dark side of the refs. Blame this on youth, inexperience and brain bubbles. Turnovers show you winners and losers, as you say, along with sacks, The Birds have a ways to go. Let's see if our coaches promise what they know they can deliver, or promise more than acceptably possible. Hmmm...

    wow, this team is worse than I thought...
    The offensive picture wasn't accurate until the huge step back after the giants showing, but the defensive statistics (sacks) & turnovers clearly show this team is going nowhere the second half of the season. Pete knows this better than anyone, but he had no intention of competing this season beyond building a team around a franchise quarterback of the future...which means high draft pick... I don't follow teams that don't compete for wins, which PC made blatantly clear when he stated their is no competition for the most important position on the team. Despite CW getting us into the playoffs last year & comparing more favorably than T-Jack in every measure this year (both statistically & ability to get in the endzone), PC is saving him for something. Considering he knew the correlation of a losing record w/ sacks by opposing teams, I don't blame him for saving his "franchise backup quarterback" to be a perfect example for the QotF next year when the OL gels... Obviously Barkley mirrors CW, not a T Jack style QB...
