In response to TrueChamp's comment:
"In fact, the Pats' pass-run ratio was nearly even in the three Super Bowl seasons – 50.5 percent to 49.5 percent. Since 2004, it has risen to 55/45. The same is true for the percentage of yards gained through the air rather than via the run. That climbed from a 64/46 split to 71-29."
71 to 29 percent of yardage now comes through the air. wowser, I wonder how all those playoff teams knew we were going to pass?
Hey how do these numbers factor into your 1 point whatever percent you posted?
Be honest here...
I will await the next series of......I think BB knows what he is doing, and you will say that as you have spent 16,000 of your 18,000 posts telling us BB doesn't know what he is doing when building a team( thats funny to look at in print isn't it?)
Your hypocrisy knows no bounds.
I think that also has to take into account that Antwan Smith nor Corey Dillon have been running the ball. since 2007 its been Maroney, BJGE, Sammy Morris, & Woodhead.
Since Ridely and BLount have arrived they have seemed to go under center more and run it more consistently
Oh, Joe. Tell me what you think about this...
A. Smith career in N.E, 45 games 45 starts 2,781 yards on 721 carries, 3.8 ypc, 21 tds 5 fumbles lost
BJGE in 2 years as a starter in N.E 32 games 1,675 yards on 410 carries, 4.1 ypc, 24 tds 0 fumbles lost
in 2008 we used a platoon, big time names like sammy morris, Lamont Jordan and Faulk together they had in 16 games 1,599 yards on 319 carries 5.0 ypc, 14 tds on the year and 1 fumble lost
S. Ridley career in N.E 46 games 26 starts 2,477 yards on 555 carries, 4.5 ypc, 20 tds 5 fumbles lost
We have always been able to run the ball, even with Maroney and Morris in 07 we had in
16 games, 1,219 yards on 270 carries, 4.5 ypc, 9 tds and 0 fumbles
So as you can see Joe, we have always been good at running the football, we have the best o line coach in NFL history.
