Given all of the backlash at my last thread, this board should be able to come up with plenty of reasons why the SF doesn't have the best defense this year. I would like to discuss it, because I think that they do indeed have the best defense.

And here is the most telling reason why. Look at SF’s H U G E lead in PA/G, the single most important defensive stat category...

 1. SF  13.2 
2. PIT 15.6 (+2.4 = +18%)
3. HOU 16.9 (+3.7 = +28%)
4. BAL 16.9 (+3.7 = +28%)
5. MIA 19.2 (+6.0 = +45%)
...
22. KC 22.8 (+9.6 = +73%)
...
32. MIN 29.0 (+15.8 = +120%)

Do you realize just how big a +18% gap between #1 and #2 is? So why isn’t the above data enough for you too? Which other team is instead the best defensive team this year? What do you base that on, and how close would you put the SF to them in your own ranking?
