If I were the coach, there is no way I'd let them hang their hat on that performance. But let's not kid ourselves here. The most important stat is points on the board. A stat that dates back to 1962 is completely irrelevant, because with the advent of rules that protect the offense, a 275 yard game is not uncommon. 9 QB's threw for over 275 yards this past weekend.
