It is certainly no secret to see what the main drawback is on the Pitt football team is this season – it is our pass defense which as it stands today is (still) putrid – we’ll talk about the details of that in a minute.
But it isn’t only the pass defense which is hurting us. We have fielded a stout run defense all season on the whole in giving up only 103 yards per game which is great and lands us 6th nationally.
Yet even with that going for us we been suspect in one of the most important overall defensive areas and that is our Red Zone defense where as you can see we sit dead last in the FBS.
