Here's the one I've really been looking forward to...

Question 8a

In the playoffs, the teams that won the turnover battle won 100% of the time. Without looking it up, what do you think the Cowboys winning % is in the games they won the turnover battle in 2012?

Question 8b

What do you think their winning % is in the games they lost the turnover battle in 2012?

Question 8c

What do you think their winning % is in the games they tied in the turnover battle?

We suck in turnover margin! And we suck at closing out games! I'm going to say 50% all around, a, b, and c!

Answers

Cowboys winning % in the games they won the turnover battle in 2012

100%

That's right, 100%... just like the teams that won the TO battle in the playoffs!!! Unfortunately, the Cowboys only won the turnover battle against 4 teams... @Carolina, @Philly, Philly, and Pitt. Dallas was a perfect 4-0 in those games.

Question 8b

Cowboys winning % in the games they lost the turnover battle in 2012

The Cowboys were 1-7 in those games or 12.5%

The lone win came against TB where Dallas had 3 TOs and TB had 2. The 7 losses were against Sea, Chi, Bal, NYG, Was, NO, and Was again. Bal, NYG, NO and @Was were extremely winnable game where the TOs were likely the difference between an 8-8 season and 12-4 season.

Question 8c

Cowboys winning % in the games they tied in the turnover battle

I think this one may be the biggest shocker of all... 75%!!!


Dallas was 3-1 in games where they tied in TOs. @NYG, @ATL, CLE, and @CIN. 2 of those wins were road games against good teams. ATL was a better team last year, but Dallas still had a chance. I am more than pleasantly surprised by this and I think there is a great lesson to be learned here. Dallas was an impressive 7-1 in games they did not lose the TO battle.


What, if anything, do you guys take away from this???

Romo should quit throwing picks and firing Ryan was the right move?

We will run a defense similar to the bears (marinelli was DC last year) and Seahawks.
http://espn.go.com/nfl/statistics/team/_/stat/defense
Last years team defensive stats and rankings:

Bears: 41 sacks (8th)
Seattle: 36 sacks (18th)
Dallas: 34 sacks (20th)

Bears:24 interceptions (1st)
Seattle: 18 interceptions (tied 8th)
Dallas: 7 interceptions (31st)

Bears: 29 forced fumbles (2nd)
Seattle: 20 Forced Fumbles (tied for 5th)
Dallas: 15 forced fumbles (tied for 18th)

Turnover differential:

Bears:+20
Seattle: +13
Dallas: -13


Team Offensive Stats
http://espn.go.com/nfl/statistics/team/_/stat/passing/sort/interceptions

Chicago : threw 16 interceptions (12th)
Seattle: 10 interceptions (28th)
Dallas: 19 interceptions (3rd)


Pretty telling:

Dallas' defense was 31st in forcing interceptions with 7 interceptions while their offense was 3rd in the league with 19 interceptions.

With a stat line that, addressing the defensive backfield as opposed to working on a pass rush and the d-line worked out so well. Rolling Eyes

And, of course, Romo couldn't possibly be at fault for all of those INT's. At least 18 of them came from his WRs running the wrong routes, the sun being in his eyes, fans yelling at him, his o-linemen breaking wind, being hypnotized into believing he was Brett Favre, etc., etc.

Thats not fair. Our pass rush was not that dissimilar as the Bears/Hawks. Even more so in years past. The difference was a vanilla secondary scheme this year.
