While I think that it's fair to bring that stat up, I also think that it's fair for me to say that we also probably had among the fewest plays AND drives in the league. Our offense is unsustainable. We didn't score enough points and we ran the same offense last year that worked in the 08 regular season and simply didn't in the playoffs.
It's unsustainable. While we may score among the best TD's PER CAPITA, it doesn't necessarily mean that we score enough of them.
You realize that was by design, right? We played a ball control game that helped sustain the D and helped them rank #2. Do you think if Cam was throwing a lot more and the team were creating more turnovers that the D would still be ranked #2. Keep in mind Cam had zero pick 6's last year we vary rarely did we put the D in pad situations. Most of our turnovers were deep in opposition territory. Also consider that less drives for us means less drives for the opposition, it shortens the game and means we believe we are more efficient than you.
Note that San Diego had the fewest drives in the league and ranked either #1 or #2 in most categories. That had a great offense last year. We also won 12 games so it looks like we scored enough too. SF and Sea also play a similar game to us and they won a lot of games too. It's sustainable, you just need to execute and we didn't against SF game 2.
