Because we have to be close. Has anyone noticed that we don't turn the ball over? Tom has 5 picks in 13 games and this team NEVER fumbles, especially from the RB position. You almost wonder sometimes if BB just tells his RB's to hold onto the football and not worry so much about yardage. Even from the special teams angle, how many fumbles have we seen on punt and kickoff returns this year? We have 6 picks this year, one by Matt Cassell up by 30(hardly counts) and 4 fumbles, I believe at least two of those were TB getting stripped. Ten total, 6 less than the next best team. This team sure doesn't beat itself.
