I agree. That doesn't make sense to me either. We may need to pass the ball more if they're scoring on us all over the place, but if our D is stopping their offense then what does out pass O matter?
yeah, people assume that because a team throws and scores a lot then you have to beat them in a track meet. No, you have to take them off their game and play your game. A team with a defense like ours and a running game like ours doesn't need to worry about all of a sudden becoming a spread-offense hurling 50 yard bombs, it needs to do exactly what it does, which, if done successfully, will keep someone like Rodgers on the sideline and keep the score low.
People buy into this whole hype of "QB duels." They are never on the field at the same time. If we play the Packers, Carlos Rogers and Patrick Willis, et al, will be "dueling" with Aaron Rodgers, while Alex Smith duels with Clay Matthews and Charles Woodson. etc.
