In response to magicalhobo's comment:
I think they are up there. Once Harvin comes back they will have another receiver threat, and Lynch is a beast. They have a 2001 Patriots kind of vibe to me. Everyone thinks they are still bad, but they keep fighting.
Plus their home advantage is insane. If they could get that throught the playoffs that would be ridiculous.
Come on if you think you can take us on
You and whose army?
You and your cronies.
Lynch gets a lot of help from his OL. Case in point was his TD run. Any average RB would have gotten that TD. Pats RBs seldom see that kind of running anes, and they definitely did not have it against the Jets.
It's interesting also that his beast status gets validated by 3.5 ypc performance, yet the Pats RBs are seen as lacking on talent even when they turn in a 4.5 ypc performance like Ridley did against the Bills.
This is not a commentary on you. It's more about posters here in general.
I think those #'s will always need to be provided with context. I am not saying either one is wrong, but if Lynchs average is only 3.5 than that is misleading. I am taking Ridley over him if that where you are going. Benny enjoyed a higher ypc here than he is in Cincy. Why, who are the QB's he is behind? Playing here with Brady, a back will enjoy a higher ypc because the defense cant afford to key on them. Not since Dillon was here has any Defene put 8 in the box for a runner. What about AP? You dont think HE is working harder with 10 in the Box and Christain Ponder behind him? So Im sorry, give me Lynch any Day! Sure his line opens up Holes. but He is all alone when He RUNS OVERS DEFENDERS. Nothing misleading about that.
