Maybe...but I can point out more games where the defense or STs failed and the offense picked up the slack than he can point out games that we lost because of it...something to do with being 13-3 last season and 5-2 this season.
but by all means, if people want to feel the sky is falling, let them.
The sky is not falling, but to say the Pass Ranking is worthless is just ignorant when you consider that going back to 2001 about 70% of the superbowl winners were in the top 15 in passing.There are anomolies like the Ravens/giants/steelers, but none of them were ranked lower than 23rd in passing. Makes even more since when you realize that the last 9 superbowl winners were The Manning Bros/ Brees/ Brady/ Rodgers/ Rothlisberger, all of whom are future hall of famers reputable passing attacks. Im not saying we cant win the superbowl with this formula, but it is very unlikely that we will win it with a 29th ranked passing game.To our credit, we play in a tough division defensively where all the teams are pretty pedestrian in the passing game ( Seahawks (31) Rams (25) Cards (26) ). Id bet money that we dont finish the year ranked 29th.
Any idea what the difference in passing yards per game is between us at 29 and whoever is sitting at 20?
Bout 30 yards
