Let's just agree Nos this conversation is getting old, facts are as I have said all along you don't have to be a passing team to win in the NFL and i've proved it, let's move on shall we?
Neither team finished higher than 15th in passing yards, td's or attempts. I honestly don't understand how you can argue that. Just because they were forced to pass more in the playoffs doesn't mean they are passing teams, freakin' amazed you just don't get it.
The fact is that statement is false
So their defenses didn't pitch shutouts in the 2nd half? That's false?
The <span style="color: #0000ff;">49ers were down 17-0 to start the game and 24-14 at half time. Pitching a shut out is fine in the second half but without the offence over coming a 17-0 defecit it wouldn't have mattered. Same goes for the <span style="color: #0000ff;">Ravens, down 13-7 at half. They didn't find success scoring until the switched thier offence in the second have to a more aggressive passing offence...and again, if they had not made that change the defence pitching a shut out in the second half may not have mattered.
This is classic hutch, using if's and coulda shoulda's to try and prove a point.
More facts for ya hutch. Atlanta was 23rd in the league against the pass, New England was 29th in the league against the pass. Even if you aren't a passing team wouldn't it make sense to pass a little against both teams? Atlanta was 7th in scoring offense and New England was 1st in scoring offense, don't ya think the coaching staffs for the 49ers and Ravens knew they would have to pass a little to have a chance against these high scoring teams? I never said the Niners and Ravens couldn't pass, I just stated they are not passing teams, which they are not. Even with that said the Falcons still threw for more yards than the 49ers and the Patriots still threw for more yards than the Ravens. The Falcons were 6th in the league in passing offense, the Patriots were 4th in the league in passing offense and both of those teams lost. Ignore the facts all ya like buddy, doesn't make them any less factual.
This is now boring, get back to me when you have facts to back up your ignorance.
Hutch / Nos.....OMG, you guys still at it??
Look, you both make valid points and respect both of your views but realistically, a team has to be able to do both pass and run when required. If a team is run heavy and it falls behind badly, they have to be able to move the ball through the air otherwise they're toast for the most part and then again, if a team is pass heavy and has a large lead it must be able to control the clock by running the ball to keep the opposing team from getting back in the game.
We all can argue/debate that the league is a pass oriented league that wins games or that a great run game and defense with some passing can win games but IMO you have to be able to do both to be sucessfull for the most part. Yes there are exceptions but it isn't the norm.
Now that I have been pulled into this debate / hornets nest please go ahead and bash me as I have broad shoulders and am a big boy.
.....I actually thought you wanted to end this....just more BS like normal.
I quit posting until I read this little nugget of stupidity.
It's funny.....they didn't have the top rated defences, top RB's , but the best teams could sure throw the deep ball.
The fact are all there
What facts hutch, you never use facts, ever! You have used nothing but opinion in every conversation we have ever had. That's fricken hilarious.
I didn't run out of anything, I simply get tired of using facts to support my ideas only to have you tell me your opinions are right and my facts are wrong.
Proven wrong on Percy how? I showed proof of him being a POS his entire football life, what did you prove me wrong on? I never said the Vikings will trade him I said they should!
I love that you can call me ignorant, I have done nothing but prove you wrong on every single conversation we have ever had yet somehow you act like you win, you have never won chit! Just saying you win doesn't mean you win. You are welcomed to your opinions hutch but thats all you have, you are wrong you do not have to be a passing team to win, the Ravens and 49ers prove that, neither ranked higher than 15th in passing yards, td's or attempts yet somehow you say they are passing teams, just because they were forced to pass more in the playoffs doesn't make them passing teams.
I said "Hutch disagrees"
The first thing you wrote in the thread is
Would have to disagree with you on this one simmion
Just because I know you doesn't mean I was being insulting. I wasn't wrong was I?
The first insult in this thread was
Anyone who watched this years play offs and thinks/tries to spin that you only need a defence and run game to win doesn't know football.
I said nothing remotely close to insulting prior to the above remark.
the ignorant crap usually starts first with Nos...
This simply isn't true, we have talked about this before and I showed where it was you who started with the insults, also I have never called you retarded, ignorant yes, retarded no.
I'd really like to see where I actually started a post attacking someone in the manner you have stated without being provoct first.
HAHAHA, you started it on this freakin thread.
hutch, you bash everyone who doesn't have the same opinions as you, me, FSN, Mary Jane, anyone. Who do you see me arguing with aside from you? You are the instigator, always have been.
I see no need to bash you 67, you at least have an opinion that you dont try to pass off as fact, you are a great poster IMO.
Are we done yet......
Uh oh, hutch is mad, HAHA.
Who ever said QB's aren't paid the most, your entire post is nothing new to anyone who knows the structure of a football team. The QB should be paid most hes the most important player on the team, touches the ball more than anyone, not sure how this proves it's a passing league though.
Thank you for finally using a fact to back up your opinion on something.
but you two are offering your opinion on what that means in this league.
Neither team ranked higher than 15th in passing yards, td's or attempts during the regular season, is it wrong to point out they aren't passing teams based solely on those stats? I mean shouldn't passing teams be ranked a little higher up in the passing categories?
The only idiot on cbs is you hutch..... lets hear how you backpeddle this one..... remember when you said Joe Flacco wasnt a good qb and would never take his team to the superbowl... lets hear you back peddle from there..... that statement says everything about you and that is you dont know talent or football... but go on as I laugh at your stuidity
The first person to call some one a name was you Nos....ignorant fool I believe you called me. Just pointing out the FACTs.
I showed you a long time ago that you were the one who started with the insults and let's not forget it is you that called me a retard just a few days ago, i've never gone there, you are ignorant on some things as am I, me pointing it out isnt even close to calling someone a retard.
You really want me to go through threads where you have had confrontations with various posters lol
Yes I do, the only one that you will ever find I insulted or called any sort of name besides you on the Vikes board is that idiot Vikes fan 145 and carpy and I call carpy names because hes a moron who makes everything about race.
if I disagree with what you are saying I am bashing and no longer giving my opinion when you do it's the fine lol.
One slight difference, when i'm using opinion I say i'm using opinion, when i'm showing you that you are wrong using facts, I indicate that i'm using facts, you never use facts you just use your opinion and to be honest thats fine but to tell me the facts im using are wrong and your opinion is right is the definition of ignorant isnt it?
