So anybody who is confused when someone points to one of those three stats, anybody who sees it as an excuse or a consolation, just needs to remember yesterday's game.
That's what a complete team looks like.
The one stat that equates to wins and losses more than any other especially during the playoffs and SB is a QB's TD to turnover ratio. Manning's TD to turnover ratio yesterday was 1-3 compared to 2-0 for Wilson. Turnovers are a killer in the playoffs and SB they put defenses back on the field and force them to have to defend a short field. In Seattle's 3 losses in 2013 Wilson had 4 turnovers.
Did I hear it right last night when they said the Seahawks are mostly made up of mid round picks and street free agents? If so, WOW. Why can't we do that? By the way, I know the real answer to that question.........
That's going in the sig for a while, because I have a feeling I'll be referencing it quite a bit when we talk about building a winning team in coming threads.
Just like a couple years ago when the only guy playing for Denver was Tebow.
True. Except Manning actually has talent and Tebow did his on smoke and mirrors. But man, the end of 2011 was too much for me hearing about Tebow. The beatdown they got by the Pats was so sweet. Wasn't it something like 35-0 early in the 2nd? Then NE took their foot off the pedal and coasted.
I thought Peyton's OL looked awful yesterday. He had no time to throw at all. The few times he did, they moved the ball. I don't think he looked like a rookie at all. The 5 guys in front of him didn't show up. On top of the poor blocking they had stupid penalties at bad times.
Exactly. The sooner that some of the people who can't grasp this learn this simple fact the better.
And last night also should remind people that strong defense beats strong offense in playoffs and championships.
