same dumb qualifiers everyone uses to describe the 49ers.
we have the #7 scoring offense. call me crazy, but i think you can win a lot of games when you score more points than the other team.
and the niners two SBs vs the bungles save for a few miraculous drives by Joe lol
This. Also people forget during those years years Marino had better stats than Montana. Guess who got 4 rings?
I agree with Billick in the sense that our offense does need to keep up but I disagree with the notion that you absolutely have to have a gun slinger type QB to win it all. Montana vs Marino, Manning (Eli) vs Brady (who threw 50 TD passes en route to 16-0), Dilfer vs Collins, Johnson vs Gannon, etc.
At the end of the day, it all comes down to coaching. Even in those "shoot outs."
I was watching "Americas Game" on the 94 49ers and even Young was commenting on how WELL Shanahan game planned. Young had literally memorized EVERY play, scheme, etc etc. They knew EXACTLY what the Chargers were going to do at all times on defense and capitalized. It's easy to sit back and say "well they won because Young threw 6 TD passes." Fair enough but the HOW is way more important IMO. Even Young will say that.
