Thank god they've added to the defense, now maybe the offense will score more than 14 and 17 points in the Super Bowl... see how silly that sounds?
NOT! They can't score a lot of points while the D is on the field, and with possessions disappearing at an OBSCENE rate.. Is this really a foriegn concept to you? Did you not hear them mention at least 5 times during the Pats/Donkeys game? 7 freaken possessions!
And you've been telling us how smart you are, all these years. PFFT
Apparently bb, with help from Lombardi, agrees and can admit it. Sorry you can't.
See how silly you sound?
umm they had just as many posessions as the giants did but couldnt score. were the three and outs the defenses problem? what about the interceptions? the defense picked off manning in the last superbowl only to have brady throw a pick in the very next play. the offense has stunk in the duperbowls and afc championship games for years.
Yes and the Pats scored 4 less points against a much tougher D and had the lead until one of the many epic Defensive meltdowns allowing them to score on 75 freaken% of their second half possessions, 3 of 4. And no the D did not get a turn over against Manning. I think your confused. Not only did they not get a pick they failed to get a 3 and out and failed to stop them on their side of the field even ONCE which resulted in some of the poorest Offensive field position in SB history. They scored a SB record 98 yrd TD. How many times did you expect them to break that record in a game with awful field possession throughout.?
Sorry but D's are there to help the O, not HINDER THEM, which is EXACTLY what they did by not getting the ball back to them,,,, by not getting a 3 & out... by not recording a single turn over and by giving them the poorest field position in SB history on the freaken limited possessions they had and committing stupid penalties to negate any positives.
Sorry, but all those things matter and all those things hurt the offense.
Offenses play against Defenses and when one defense does absolutely NOTHING to help their O and the other defense does, IT MATTERS! It's a team game, both need to contribute, one cannot make up for all the deficiencies of the other half, not against a complete team where both sides were actually playing.
Oh and 3 and outs are common in every game, unless you play the pats D. No worries about that, or picks which are also common, for that matter.
One was normal, the other was not.
The O had approx 20 minutes to run their plays. The Gints had approx 40 minutes to run their plays. Not only does that limit possession but it also limits the amount of plays you can run per possession.
When the amount of plays you can run are limited, you become one dimensional.
When the number of plays you can run is limited, you score less.
When the number of plays you can run is not limited, you score more.
31st ranked D's that can't get off the field, NEVER win SB's and that's a fact.
And it's a FACT for all the above reasons.
I thank god, Lombardi told BB his defense SUCKS and he better fix it NOW.
He's wasted enough years and anyone who denies that needs to be watching tennis, not football.
Hopefully they can compete with a full team now. They had no shot with that other crap.
