Wow. What happened to this thread?
At any rate ... in no particular order.
1.) Yeah they ran the ball effectively, they've done that most of the year.
2.) They will face better defenses later on, that has nothing to do with my post, for the person that said that. When they face great defenses .... they aren't going to score 45 no matter what they do. They could draw defenses in the playoffs that a spread matches well against though, and they could draw defenses that have a better look for the 2TE that Obrien ran, or something else entirely. But who knows who will be in there come january. It's too early to tell.
3.) This was the first game they implemented that wide open 'spread' that they ran in 2007 all season. They've had that look before, but always just motioning people out. The spread is a look everyone in the NFL can give these days, but few teams still come out and just spread it wide open from the get go. New Orleans kind of does. The Pack is more of a traditional single back outfit.
I thought it was interesting to say the least. Some of those plays were right out of the 2007 playbook, with Lloyd running Moss's routes. They certainly gashed the Rams real good.
When it works it's fun to watch, and it was nostalgia inducing from that undefeated season.
