PEDs win championships.
Take the net stat of points per drive, and combine it with two other net stats -- pass rating differential and turnover differential. Since 2008, there have been 43 teams that finished the season ranked among the top 12 in pass rating differential, turnover differential, and points-per-drive differential. All 43 teams made the playoffs or won at least 10 games. Here are the teams that did it this past season, along with their net rankings:
Seattle (1st, 1st, 2nd)
Philadelphia (4th, 4th, 11th)
San Francisco (5th, 4th, 4th)
Kansas City (7th, 2nd, 5th)
Carolina (11th, 6th, 3rd)
New England (12th, 8th, 8th)
That was a masterful performance by the Seahawks. They totally humiliated Manning and the Broncos.
Jerry always seems to fall in love with the latest champ. Maybe just maybe he will start building along the DL and safety positions ...that seems to be the best we could hope from this game
Exactly, Lane. Stats mean nothing in the big scheme of things.
The only stat that counts is the final score.
Throwing for a great number of yards is pretty.
But winning the game is much more satisfying.
No team ever was in the lead for that long in any SB. Or any NFL championship before the SB that I could find out. Only Hester ever ran back an opening KO and they lost that game.
He's like a kid who sees a shiny new toy and has to have it. Hopefully he has to have defense in this draft.
How come he doesn't ever copy the latest champ's our owner isn't our GM thing?
Thee most postseason losses in history now belongs to Peyton manning all by himself. 12 losses. I couldn't stand hearing how's gonna go down as best qb ever. Totally ignoring legends of the game. He's one of the greats but not THEE best.
It proved the passing game efficiency differential statistics have it just about exactly right as far as I'm concerned.
its same for sports all around the world for team sports,the flashy stuff rarely wins you championships.
Two things. That running the ball and playing Defense still win in the "new" NFL. Seattle number one in both categories.
Agreed. So what happens to us and Tony's $100 million contract?
You think Denver or Seattle would consistently put up these types of performances against each other? This was an aberration, though it doesn't mean Seattle isn't any good not they weren't impressive. Just two weeks prior, CK, one of the worst starting QBs in the NFL, was threatening a TD on the last drive.
On fire. lol
Sure stats mean someting.
The number one defense statistically won the Super Bowl and proved they were the number one defense
The number one offense statistically made it all the way to the Super Bowl.
Defense Brangs Rangs
Fast and gang tackling defenses still win championships....like in the 90s.....Seahawks reminded me of our 92-93 defense
And the team with the highest combined rankings in the most important stats...won it all.
This win confirms what we already knew about which stats are the most important. Seattle was #1 in pass rating differential, #1 in turnover differential, and #2 in point per drive differential.
