150 yards passing on 25 attempts and 150 rushes on 25 attempts is not a balanced team. It is a team that is not very good when they pass the ball.
To the bold, not that I want the 49ers to take this path, but you do know what types of teams won the last 10 superbowls, right?
I avoided nothing and stated nothing but fact. Look up the definition of balance if you are unfamiliar with the term. You are looking at rankings like they are any indication even though they are going to be skewed because of the pass happy teams that are piling up losses. If a team gets the same amount of yards from the same amount of plays then by definition that is balance. I don't know why you would dispute that fact, but the fact remains that this is a balanced team by design. As for the last ten superbowl winning teams, I would say they were the teams that were executing the best in the playoffs. Your wish to redefine a clearly defined word in the English language just to support a weak argument is something that I find comical at best and is a clear indicator that your argument is fundamentally flawed from the outset.
What Joe is saying is that, given the same number of attempts, the passing game should end up with more yards then the running game. Our running game is ridiculously good, which is why it can almost match the production of our passing game.
For example, ending the season with 3,000 rushing yards, is insanely good, but ending the season with 3,000 passing yards, is average.
So yes, our offense is "balanced" by the numbers, but to achieve that balance, our running game has to be much better than our passing game (not to say the passing game is bad).
