Through the first 8 games the 49ers are ranked 22th in Pass Defense (yards per game)
HOWEVER, these stats are a better indicator of how good we are against the pass:
59.3% Comp Pct is ranked 12th
6.7 yards/att is ranked 9th
78.0 QB Rating is ranked 6th
10 INT is ranked 7th
324 Passing Attempts is 4th most in the league
Conclusion: Teams choose to air it out against us....A LOT. Teams can't move the ball by running on us, so they have to throw it 40+ times a game. I'm sure this isn't news to most of you, but to see it from a statistical standpoint is interesting. We are top 10 in most pass defense categories, which is a much more accurate assessment than pure yardage totals.
