Demeco Ryans and POT (Points Off Turnovers).Why we ain't 0-2.

The last 7 days have been crazy as shit. My mind is still blown. How did this happen?

Demeco Ryans:

If this were baseball, Demeco Ryans would have a WAR of 2, in two games. Now, I understand he isn't the whole run defense, Mychal Kendricks was a force as well, but Demeco was the difference.but lets just look at his two game stats to Casey Matthews:

Casey Matthews: 11 tackles 8 solo 3 assisted 0 sacks, pass defenses, or INT's.

Demeco Ryans: 12 tackles 11 solo 1 assisted 1 sack 1 PD 1 INT

The tackles are similar, but I can't find the difference in missed tackles, but I believe Matthews had 5 in the first two games and Ryans I believe has none so far. Ryans also has more INT's, more sacks and a PD. Casey didn't even get a pick or a sack. And Ryans put up a stat that couldn't be recorded: Leadership.

Here's how our rush defense was in the first two weeks:

2011: 55 attempts 292 yds 5.3 YPA 2 TD's

2012: 43 attempts 210 yds 4.9 YPA 1 TD

That's about a 41 YPG difference, even though opponents took fewer carries. HUGE DIFFERENCE.......

POT:

No it's not that pot, it's POINTS OFF TURNOVERS. The Ravens had a +2 TO Ratio. But do you know why we won? The Offensive POT ratio was 14:6. AND THE RAVENS HAD DOUBLE THE TO'S!!!!!!!!!!!!! So the Ravens had a paltry 1.5 POT per turnover forced. The Eagles had a perfect 7.0 POT per forced. We scored a TD for every turnovers, now that's how you cash in on a turnover.

How we can improve:

Defensive POT. That's how many points an offense would have scored if the turnover didn't occur. Now this is theoretical, but it's fairly accurate. All of our turnovers occurred past midfield, so our defensive POT would be around 17-28 points. That's right, we could have scored somewhere between 41-52 points if we didn't give the ball away!!!(I know that's very hard) Meanwhile, Baltimore's theoretical POT was just 3-7. So now I'm stating the obvious, the turnovers need to go.

We may be 2-0, but our potential is still great.
