Posted this before but its worth revisiting. Below is a table that lists the relevant statistics and their correlations with winning. Ie; Which stats/events have the most significant impact upon winning. The table is sorted in order of absolute strength of correlation.

So, where does Hamilton rank?
They're #2 as far as Offensive Passing Yards Per Attempt @ 8.9. (MTL is #1 with 9.2)
No surprise here, they're tied for last place with Edmonton in Defensive Passing Yards.
As far as offensive fumble rate, they've fumbled the most by far, 32 times, giving it up 17 times which is also worst in league.
Interceptions? Well documented in other threads. 18 is most for any QB, but as a team they rank 4th.
Defensive Forced Fumbles? They've taken it away 12 times. Once again, 4th in the league.
Defensive interceptions? 13. (Surprised! I can only recall a handful) 3rd worst in the league.
Can't get offensive vs. defensive penalties, but Hamilton was flagged 3rd most times for the 2nd most yards across the league.
Running the ball offensively? Tied for 4th in the league.
Stopping the run? 2nd last. No surprise here.
So in summary, in the areas that impact winning the most, they get an A+ in one area and a middling to absolute failing grade in all others. One dimensional ... George proved to be a passing guru ... But inept everywhere else!
My perception of the 2012 TiCat Season ... Threw the rock around like it was hot ... Couldn't defend the pass ... Gave up the ball more than they took it away ... Undisciplined when it came to penalties.
