Here are selected team stats for the Ticats after Week 3 of the 2009 regular season. While there is still room for improvement in some areas, the stats clearly suggest that the Ticats are "movin' on up".

I like this analysis. I would add that the D must get to AC early and often. This may mean that the backfield have to control the initial 6 yards from the line of scrimmage on almost every play to eliminate AC's quick release.
all looks good to me, the only flaw there is the run defence, and that is still improving. since that first game against T.O were allowing 118 Rushing YPG as opposed to 133. and 118 would put us in 6th as opposed to 8th, and like i said, it's still improving.
some more stats i would like to add:
NET Punting: 41.5 (1st) so were allowing just under 3 yards per punt return :thup:
Punt Returning: (players with more than just 1 return) Marquay McDaniel is 2nd in average return yards :thup:
Kick Returning: (players with more than just 3 returns) Marquay McDaniel is 2nd in average return yards :thup:
probably the best all round Special Teams unit in the league
