Honestly, i just dont get what the big deal is with short, medium, or deep balls. couple things, i never understood.
With Smitty, first we said we cant cater our offense to the spread soo much, even tho he's good at it. He's no Brady, but when i have watched Brady play, it seems like at least half his plays in any game are from the shotgun. Smith too much with the short to intermediate game, but i've watched Rodgers, Flacco, Brees, Ryan, and all these qb's utilize the short pass constantly, not once in a blue moon. Even Stafford to Johnson, he kills em with the YAC.
If anyone has watched the eagles offense of old, i cant tell u it seemed like the RB had almost 1000 yds of receiving from simple short passes. And Reid and Charles both mentioned how much he may be used in the short game. Even when REid said recently, charles loves catching the ball.
I too would like to see a few deep balls a game, but at the end of the day if we get that W, and s**t, only passes for 100yds, does it really matter other than for Fantasy points.
I loved what Jerry said recently in an interview, about Calvin Johnson breaking his records...." I mean yeah records are meant to be broken, but the difference with he and I is, at the end of the day, i had the same if not better type of numbers when we were winning championships. so yeah it may be, but until u win it all, im just saying." not all exactly, but i got the point.
At the end of the day, unless ur bringing in championships with whatever the yardage, does it really matter. Brees or Rodgers pass for 4-5000 yds, but has either of them won a championship lately. Or does that concept of its just on the Qb's shoulders that leads to victories. If thats the case then either one of them would be winning the SB every year, forget about defense, special teams, etc. Just score 40 pts a game, and just hope the other team scores 35. lmao.
I'm just saying, just like our man Justin Smith, Montana, Rice, Young, namath, aikman, and a few others said, at the end of the day, stats are good, but does it really matter if u get 5-6 sacks, throw for 400yds, catch for 300yds if u still lose the game. Hell no. So id like to see some disagree with those that have been there and done that, (that have stated, they dont care about stats) not just us fans talking back and forth.....
so on any given day, all i want is the W (and have stated that since before we been on this conference championship tear), and if any team regardless of stats keep that column in double digits, they'll be in the playoffs, while the big stat guys with the L's are watching the games on TV, just like us fans.
