1. How does our current 49er defense compare to the Raven's Super Bowl defense, which I believe is the best all time defense in the NFL?
2. Analyze all of our 3rd down plays for the year to see why our 3rd down conversion rate is so low. Is there a trend?
3. Perform the same analysis for our red zone plays. Why do we score so few TD?
For #2 and #3, even just the past couple of games would be nice.
Here's an easy story for you: Find out if Harbaugh really is "opening up the offense." It should be a profitable story for you because you can use a lot of inches (assuming you still get paid by inches) with charts.
Apparently we still have a ways to go to rival the 2000 Ravens. I found the following:
In the past quarter-century, only one defense has held opponents to fewer than 11 points per game. That team? Ray Lewis' Ravens. In 2000, Baltimore set NFL records for fewest points allowed (165) and fewest yards rushing allowed (970) in a 16-game schedule.
