49ers outgained Ravens 182-93 (6.3-2.7 ypc) on the ground

45 posts in this topic

What I'm getting from this thread is that San Fran is a known running team, and lost to a team that had 6 MORE rushing attempts; somehow this means the Panthers should run less.

MisterLove, we get it, Hurney overspent like crazy on our backfield, nobody disagrees with that point. The way you are wording your post is essentially saying that having a good running is actually detrimental to a team's ability to win - this is not the case, you just need to have a balance between production and price. just because Ray Rice wasn't the key factor in winning this game doesn't mean he isn't an integral part of their offense. judging by the carries Rice and Pierce got, even while being ineffective, the Ravens must have felt that a balanced offense is a winning formula.

I like you Mister Love, but not sure I'm seeing your point. If the Ravens ran the ball better, they don't even have to worry about that tense ending.

No you don't HAVE to do it well to win. It does help though, and just looking at each superbowl winner's statistical ranking as proof that you can't win that way (which I don't think you're implying, but could come off that way). Assuming that a few plays break either way, the headline writers would say that the ground game dominance helped the 49ers win the game. The same way they did for the Niners-Packers game two weeks ago.

the packers defense didn't even bother showing up to that game.

when your defense is so incompetent as to not be able to do anything against the run then run all you want. You'll meet those teams in the regular season and sometimes in the playoffs as well. But against a conference champion just producing yards on the ground isn't going to cut it.

if colin was about 50 starts into his nfl career and not like about 15, he'd have been throwing more, completing more, running less, and san fran would've done better

You don't have to run to win, but it helps a lot if you can. The one and only thing you have to do to win is score more points than the other team. Fwiw though, SF's offense actually scored more points than the Baltimore offense did.

Now if the other team turns it over more than your team does, has a couple of critical penalties early in the game, and you score a td on a kick return, then you don't have to run to win the game. That is a lot of if's though.
