In response to Neal Page's comment:
That's some fuzzy math you have there which mysteriously leaves out every human element possible in a competitve sport such as football.
One thing is clear: You little math wizards here, who go running to QBR or any other offensive stat which is bloated beyond belief in this era anyway, clearly never played competitive sports. Like, ever. You didn't even play anything on the playground in elementary school.
You pretend momentum, attitude, consistency, style of play, etc, etc, etc, mean absolutely nothing. You think this is a video game, replete with some kind of a formula backed by stats.
"Stats are for losers" - Bill Belichick (You know, the Pats GM and Head Coach)
If Brady doesn't take the Safety, throw the worst INT of his career in a SB in the 4th qtr or throw high to Welker, that's easily 5 minutes combined of clock. Easily. And I am being nice.
Add in 3 straight runs on one series and it's another 2+ minutes of clock.
Do you not understand basic math. Not fuzzy at all 2:45 x 12 = 33minutes. 2:45 x 8= 22 minutes. Get it? Maybe you need a GED refresher.
Oh, yeah 3 more of those negative runs would have done wonders. Wonders!
