The Todd Grantham Points Allowed Countdown... Week 2

Well that sure sucked, huh.  Nonetheless, this must be done... and I think we can all agree things would've been much much worse if Slick Willie was on the sidelines today.  In fact, I think we can find a way to still blame this on him. 

 

Following Todd Grantham's hire, I came up with the idea of taking a cue from Kyle's Mark Richt Victory Watch and comparing the performance of Todd Grantham's defense with that of his immediate predecessor.

Though this is not accurate (strictly speaking) given things like differences in offensive production, special teams performance, and scores off of turnovers, I thought it might be a fun way of comparatively analyzing how well (or poorly, I suppose) our new defensive coordinator is doing.  Though there are obviously differences in opponents played and how good different opponents might be one year to the next, my feeling is that these will likely cancel each other out over time (and, at any rate, this is all in good fun) and clearly will be more telling as time goes on -- small sample size and all that.  Note that I am not including the defensive performance against Texas A&M since that wasn't Willie's show.

So without any further ado, I give you the Todd Grantham Points Allowed Countdown:

In 2009, Willie Martinez's defense gave up 313 points in 12 games for an average of 26 points per game.

In 2010, Todd Grantham's defense has given up 24 points in 2 games for an average of 12 points per game.

At the current rate, Grantham's defense will have given up the same number of points as Willie Martinez's 2009 defense during the 1st Quarter of Game 3 in the 2012 Season.
