Well, you asserting it over and over again makes a really strong point that is very well-supported with evidence.This is a fake news post. If DVOA has us as the 6th-best team against the run, then the stat is clearly broken. Our run defense absolutely sucked. Everybody knows it. Anybody that watched the games knows it. VJ doesn't care about trying to stop the run, and it showed, to our great detriment, later in the season when teams figured us out and ran it down our throats with wide-open running lanes, very few defensive stops, and long, excruciating drives.
It's simple. We're not good against the run. We're not BUILT to be good against the run.
The median NFL team rushed for 115 YPG last season. In the last five games of the season and the playoffs, we allowed less than that twice, and two more times we allowed 126 yards rushing.
We played some really good rushing offenses down the stretch, which might contribute to your impression. The Rams were 11th in rushing DVOA, the Colts were 2nd, Dallas was 13th, Seattle was 6th.
