Q. Talk about time of possession?
MARK HELFRICH: In terms of when you look at the stats that define winning and losing, turnover margin is the number one thing. Sacks are the number two thing. All that stuff that we keep track of and talk about and educate our players about are the exact things that matter in recruiting. We don't talk about 40 times.
We talk about character.
It's what we define. When you look at the best teams out there long‑term in the NFL, we try to look at how do those scouts identify players? We try to do that in a scientific manner. And, again, time of possession just isn't one of those things.
Our defense compensates for a lot of it by how they substitute. Again, fresh horses run‑fast‑type philosophy. We're not going to change too much of how we do it. ...
