We were tied for last in the league last year with a 3rd down conversion rate of 28%.
After one game this year we're at 22% (seventh from the bottom).
Green Bay was seventh from the bottom in stopping opposing teams on third down last year.
So far there's absolutely no evidence that this isn't something we still need to get better at.
i dont disagree with this
but if you break it down we missed 2 3rd and shorts where i think jacobs wouldve converted
2 were PI's basically where we wouldve converted if the defender didnt do something illegal and 2 was to burn down more time basically
its much better than the stats show
