What will it take to be a passing team again.

He did that before Alex played a down for him. He also probably didn't expect to be a few blown plays from the Super Bowl in his first season. Events have a way of overtaking and surprising us sometimes.
even if we had an elite QB we would still be a ground n pound team...its just JH and Roman's style but with an elite QB i can see us running a similar game plan as the saints. Saints have a good blend of passing and running.

if it aint broke dont fix it

Well when go 1/13 on 3rd down (7% 3rd down efficiencys) I would say something was broken. Defense is not going to win every game for you.

Moss, Manningham, Jenkins, Jacobs, James. Swain cut...
What do you care? If we run the ball and play defense and that is good enough for 13 - 3 than that is good... We would have gone to the Super Bowl if we caught 2 punts. There is nothing wrong with this team.

It seems to me that we are scoring on more drives this year and punting less. In the Vikings game we just did not get as much opportunity as we normally do because the Vikings kept the ball for almost 35 minutes. I don't remember seeing too much Andy Lee. The Vikings kept the ball away from us, they did a good job but we are fine

Alex can throw deep, but it's a matter of getting the WRs on the same page, only Crabtree and Vernon seem to click with Alex. Moss, Manningham, Walker and Williams haven't made an impact, Mario has the most of those 4. I don't think we are suited for a passing team, we have legit RBs in Gore, Hunter and Jacobs, and James in the future, our OL is solid, we are a defensive team, I hope we don't go in the pass first, with a weak defense approach. It would be great to have a Manning, but I dont wanna be in a shootout. But I dont think we will see it any time soon, Alex has limited abilities, he isn't elite, and probably won't ever be, he is capable starter, but he will never be a Brees, Brady, either Manning, Rodgers, even Big Ben and Rivers. Might be more of a Flacco though.


Flacco is light years ahead of Alex.
It will happen eventually especially if Alex does indeed bring us to the promise land. Right now we have the most complete team in football but eventually the numbers game will catch up to us and we're going to have to adapt.

only exception to the rule this year
Atlanta Falcons 3 0

You are aware that the 32nd ranked rushing attack has won the Super Bowl the last 2 years right?

I think we all know that New England and Green Bay will get their sh*t together. You're forgetting the Giants. Denver is not necessarily a passing team with McGahee. They're balanced. I'll give you Detroit but they're overrated. You're talking about a wildcard team that got humiliated in the 1st round. Never that good of a team in the 1st place. New Orleans is an anomaly. They don't count. Their problems kind of have to do with Bountygate.

Not too mention that we're 3 weeks into the year and only have 3 undefeated teams left. Alot of 1-2 and 2-1 football teams.

But he wants 500 yards passing yards and 62 points. Like the Madden.

False.



The Green Bay Packers had the 24th ranked rushing offense in 2010.

Also, the Giants averaged 116.5 rushing yards per game in the playoffs. They threw for over 300 passing yards just once in the playoffs.

Doesn't matter still ranked 32nd during the regular season didn't they. Post season they had less than 100 against us, less than 100 against New England, less than 100 against Green Bay but blew up for 1 game against Atlanta. Statisically irrelvant.

There's a reason why I'm going to weigh 16 games over 4.

You're right about Green Bay. 24th. Congradulations on that I guess. 700 yard leading rusher.

500 passing and a loss looks great to these guys....
