When we hired Shafer we thought we would atleast generate a lot of sacks if nothing else.
Well, midway through the season not so much. Currently we are tied at 42 place with 13 teams, all who have are averaging 2 sacks per game. Personally I feel that sacks per game does not tell the whole story so I looked at sacks per 100 pass attempts.*
*I think sacks count against rushing so I divided sacks by total pass attempts + sacks.

I used TCU, Florida State and USC for my examples of a good defense and Washington as my baseline.
As we can see when compared to teams we are "tied" with we come in at 11. Also interesting is that Kansas State seems to be limited by opportunities to get after the QB (crappy run D?).
Not sure how significance the numbers are but it seems to confirm my disappontment with Shafer. I thought if anything we would be getting to the qb more considering our D line.
