I think that 10 points isn't going to win a lot of games. Hang on to stats tho, by all means, but they scored 10 or less 4 times this season and won only one of those, and in the that win the D didn't allow a TD. They didn't score enough points to win at Atl to wrap up the 2 seed, the D bailed them out there, too. Seems like there were several games where the O was laying an egg until the D got a score to get them back in it.
We went 12-4. Had several games with 30+ points too. Seemed to work more than it didn't
It's a great aspect to have when you're leading but when you're coming from behind it's a damn liability. Quick strikes are essential too. Look at the way Indianapolis caters to Luck. Granted, they have speed on offense but they're not afraid to take chances down the field. Pagano pulled a Rivera last night but there were bright spots that's gonna be giving defensive coordinators nightmares in a few years once Luck gets a defense and a running game.
How did that work out for Luck last night. At least they threw deep a lot.
Them catering to throwing deep and all that was why they gave up 43 points.
But, hey they had bunches of yards and a couple TDs. Who cares if your defense gets gassed and you have short drives that put them in huge holes throughout the season.
San Fran has Crabtree, Boldin, Davis, Patton, Manningham and possibly the best o-line in the NFL. Do you have any idea how long it would take to acquire that much talent?
New England hasn't won a Super Bowl in years. When Tom Brady won his first two Super Bowls, he was a game manager -- that was a long time ago. Belichick evolved with the game. After all, he implemented the Spread into his offense.
Seattle has the most complete defense in the league. Did you not watch that game yesterday? Lynch and LoB won that game for Seattle. If our running game and secondary were that impressive, we'd be winners too -- it's not however.
We were 12-4. #2 seed. Top ten in TDs per drive. We lost today because of missed opportunities in the red zone, despite moving the ball virtually all day.
Not to sound whatever, but I was at that Saints game. It was the day before my mom passed away. It was the most fun I have ever had at a sporting event. And that game, forever will remind me of my mom.
It will, to me, probably forever be the must special game for me. For a lot of reasons, including that same feelings expressed by Kurb.
