Ravens were ranked a modest 11th while the Niners ranked 4th in the league in 2012

Last year the Giants ranked 32nd in the rushing yards

The year before the Packers ranked 24th

...keep telling me you need to dominate on the ground to win the game guys

they also threw for more yards than the opposing team. I thought for the most part San Francisco did a great job of moving the ball and putting up points. Just because they lost doesn't mean having a dominant ground game isn't a safe and effective way to score points.

First of all the Ravens had better QB play tonight than the Niners, and secondly, I can't think of a whole lot of teams that have been as consistent as the panthers at running the ball well the last few years. And going back to 2010 the panthers have been bottom 3 in w/l record.

By that logic, we should've been the second best team in 2010 since we gave up the 2nd most rushing TDs

Hey Mr. Belding Pantherclaw is usually the guy who makes pathetic attempts at undermining my points and falling on his face

If you take this away from him that'll be like the 5th job he's lost to someone else in recent memory

San Frans offense looked good, minus the turnovers. If they call four running plays(qb or rb) at the end, they score. Play calling lost them the game. Im not buying into your theory.

"I'm not buying into your theory, which is based on stats, but if the Niners just ran the ball every time at the goal line, they definitely would've won. Trust me."

did john fox have a brain re-wiring factory he dropped so many of you morons into where you were convinced running the ball = winning and could not be dissuaded?

because it's literally impossible to deprogram your bugged minds, even after so much contradictory evidence against you.

Mister Know It All, how many of those compared teams ran some pistol formations or had a qb similar to Kaep? And how many of those teams ran that style offense all the way to the superbowl with basically a set of downs away from the trophy?

so seeing as how you think it would've taken only four plays for the niners to win the game (or just one running play lol), do you think the ravens would've handed it off to kill the remaining time in the fourth quarter with a 2 point deficit?

then we can definitely say play calling cost the Ravens the game in that case

Mister I Know Everything, your theory doesnt apply to the new style of O thats being run with the up and coming teams in the NFL. Im sorry im not buying into your groundbreaking theory. Do we need to lead the league in rushing, no but it helps. Do we have to pass, yes and mixing it up like the 9rs, Hawks, Skins doesnt sound like a bad idea.

And yes, I think if they would have run four plays in those goaline downs, they score. So, to me, play calling certainly cost them the lead and then the focus is on the defense and this awsome thread is mute.
