I never seen a professional team allow other team to convert that many 3rd and longs.
Sad part is the coaches still has jobs..

We have a better chance of stopping a 3rd and 1 than a 3rd and 17.

That's a sad commentary on a sad defensive unit.

I don't remember ever seeing a third and 17 or more made on a running play that was not a 'trick' draw play. Just a straight up run through the middle for 17 yards on 3rd down.

I have. The team would be . . . The Denver Broncos. We have been a terrible third down team for years.

I remember Dave Meggett converting a 3rd & 31 for a TD against us one year, and at home no less. It's been a long, long time since we last had a lights out defense. I think 1991 was the last time our D was really physically tough.
