Because the game has changed. It isn’t what it used to be.

Of course. This forum is just so strange:

"We need to catch up to modern times! We need analytics! We need to be innovative"

That same fan in another thread:

"Look, all these charts are stupid. What I learned 20 years ago is the truth. Anything you say is a lie"

 

And then they tag me? GTFO hypocrites. (not you daboys, love you boo)

Now Jimmy G is clearly the MVP of this game. He just threw pass #7. I mean, there’s NO WAY that Mostert could possibly have been so successful without Jimmy’s 71.4% completion percentage.

That efficient pass to Kittle was amazing

Nothing to do with GB thinking run there....

Correct. The threat of a RB, plus what the RB does after (pass route, pass blocking) are what matter. But its been proven time and time again that who the RB is doesnt matter. 

Just like this myth that Zeke faces loaded boxes. *ANOTHER LIE* I dont have the numbers off the top of my head, but he faces a loaded box like 20-25% of the time. Which is very middle tier. Almost all RBs are somewhere near that range. Because its situational, OBVI RUNDOWNS get loaded boxes (short yardage, goal line, etc).

Announcers during the vikes game: Zeke facing a loaded box every snap!

Analytics after the vike game: Zeke faced a loaded box on 4 total snaps!

 

Fans are brainwashed. They want the idea of analytics, they are going to hate what they tell you. Because it goes against your core beliefs of football. 

Just doesn't seem to be quite the anomaly when a run game dominates a team. I see it all the time. Derrick Henry, the 49ers, the Ravens, even the Packers relied on the run game. The Chiefs seem like the anomaly

There’s clearly no way to know that until after Matts has the chance to review the All-22.

I hear he watches it every week, for every team, every season

Top 12 most efficient passers are 9/12 playoff QBs. 

Of those: Stafford missed 8 games. Dak missed the playoffs by a fieldgoal against the Jets. 

For rushing:

5/12 top running backs

7/12 top running teams

 

You see the running game because thats all you are looking for.

The 4 QBs you watched today, where all top tier efficiency QBs in the NFL this year. All 4. 

You saw 1 RB in the top tier rusher. Derrick Henry, whos team got smoked. 

 

Reconcile that in your old man brains.

So 9 of the top passing teams and 7 of the top running teams?

If you dont discount the fact that Stafford only played in 8 games....  Really 9 of 11 QBs. 

And yeah, 7 top running teams, clearly boosted by Lamar Jackson putting up 1300 yards rushing. 

 

5 RBs. Should have never paid Zeke.

And I'm betting the #12 guy Watson was a guy without a top running game

Take him out and you have 8/11 and 7/11

You have to be able to run the ball to be an efficient passer, or you are Derek Carr, Dak Prescott and Matthew Stafford, and you go .500 or less and miss the playoffs

***Unless you are Patrick Mahomes and have generational talent and a loaded WR/TE corps***
