I dont beleive we have the special teams or the offense to get us quite that far. I do beleive that John Clayton is right when he said Passing teams that can run ocasionaly have the best chance to get to the super bowl. teams that rely solely on the run and are not good in the passing game have less then 35 % chance of getting past the 2 nd rd of the playoffs.
if you go back and look at our playoff failures it wasnt that we couldnt run the ball it was that we were horible in the passing game . Alias , when we had Marino we were struggling to run the ball . In comes Feidler and we couldnt get the ball deep down field and defenses stoped our run game and this is really true in our last playoff game.
what I am pondering is if we took Welker, chambers , and even McKnight and Lamar Smith and put them with Marino provided his arm headed up from the 99' or 00 ' season we could have made it past the 2nd round of the playoffs .
but John Clayton may not have much creditability with folks around here but he was dead on with teams being able to throw the ball down field . You have to admitt we really havent thrown the ball well at all.
I wont stop pointing this out because for the last two or three years our rb's have been getting plastered and put on I.R. so having the passing game and doing some different things on offense is what I am praying for because in the end super bowl teams 90% of the time can do both quite well but I am a big beleiver in the passing game to set up the run even though I am a minority to the style of offense but I would love to see Ronnie and Ricky get a super bowl ring with us.
