In response to wozzy's comment:
Post season stats or why this post is disingenuous...
Postseason rushing attempts per game for the last ten years:
2011 - Giants - #4.
2010 - Packers -#6.
2009 - Saints - #5.
2008 - Steelers - #3
2007 - Giants - #3,
2006 - Colts -#1.
2005 - Steelers - #2.
2004 - Pats - #2.
2003 - Pats - #4.
2002 - Bucs - #1.
Team's run in the playoffs, the lone exceptions were the Saints in 2009 who had home field advantage (dome) and played the Colt's in the Super Bowl, who also had home field in the AFC and also played in a dome and the Packers in 2010 under Goodell's flag happy new rules.
You guys must really enjoy watching the referee's throw flags for pass interference because that's why we have a passing league now, teams aren't running less. Flags have nearly doubled in ten years, but if you're a huge fan of fantasy football that is great...
Who wins with the run? Just about everybody...
Don't be a maroon, being less flexible, being less multidimensional in your attack is a weakness, not a boon. If you buy this then I'd ask you not to bet with your own money, you'll be homeless soon.
These stats are extremely misleading at face value.
There are only 12 teams in the post-season, not 32.
So being #6 in the playoffs is like being #16 during the season.
And obviously the teams that advance to the Super Bowl have been having better games than others because they have been winning.
