In response to prolate0spheroid's comment:
In all the above babble, not one of you addressed Eli's 75% completion rate on 40 passes. Guess what? Passes completed in bounds run off more time than running plays. Think about that a bit, then get back to me.
What does that prove exactly?
SD had a 72% completion rate and the Pats still won.
Indy had a 84% completion rate and the Pats still won.
I stopped looking after finding two quickly and easily addressing your point.
The Pats still won those games because the offense did not puuuke all over themselves.
Yeah we know and most if not all have said the D was what they were and played to what they were in the SB. They were the 31st rated pass defense in the league. They did what they did for most of the season.
What is your point other than proving our point?
Prolate bludgeoned in one fell swoop!
Sadly, Prolate is a newer fan and doesn't realize BB likes to us ethe bend don't break, where it may yield a higher compl%, but the end result usually yields FGs, not TDs.
Once the Giants kicked two FGs in the second half, I felt they were cooked. Unfortunately, our offense crapped its collective pants in the 4th qtr, starting with that Brady INT.
king i am not here to bludgeon anyone. I have had plenty of fine discussions will prolate in the past.
The reason I take the time to answer back and or go look up additional information is that I am open to understanding what they are trying to say and see if it's accurate, proves out, etc.
It just has not in this case.
The sad part is that all this time I have spent looking at all the goofy numbers has only proven what my eyes told me in real time as the game was unfolding.
I mean Pezz and prolate have BOTH in various forms in various posts listed or admitted the offenses problems in that game so I am not sure why they feel the need to continue to try and prove something more??
I've always maintained that when I say the offense I mean the whole offense, including the OC, and HC. (yes admittedly the 2011 SB was the one game in which Brady whom I love really irritated me because it felt like he was feeling his own legacy and pressing. ...bu that is just a personal feeling)
I want to use an analogy to explain my perception of this discussion.
When you are with a woman and you make a compliment about another woman, whom you observe, to the woman you are with, the woman you are with will often say something like so what are you saying I am not "what ever the compliment was you gave the other woman".
This is my perception of this discussions. It's like because I say the offense really underperformed that some people are taking exception to that as if I am some how saying the defense turned into the steel curtain in the SB. I never have.
