Drew Brees. Aaron Rodgers. Tom Brady.
No ground and pound there. Air it out and win Super Bowls.
It'll happen again this season as well. It'll continue to happen going forward until the NFL swings some of the rule changes back in favor of the running game. And the QB position dominates the NFL and I just don't see that happening.
Upgrade your QB.
Same thing for Manning. Just because he has bad playoff stats doesn't take away from the fact that he won a Super Bowl with a passing game. And just because Pittsburgh beat the Jets with a running game to MAKE it to the Super Bowl doesn't change the fact that they were beat IN the Super Bowl by a passing game.
Since NE last won a SB Pitt has 2 SB wins and the Giants have a SB win- both teams relying as much, if not more, on their run game than pass game.
since 2005 the only teams that were carried by a great pass attack in postseason to win were GB and NO the last 2 years.
Shotty is no more...
Is Mort really saying that Morono is the leading candidate for OC for the Jets?
So, provided I looked everything up correctly, of the Super Bowls you mentioned (Steelers (X2) and Giants), Super Bowl XL is the only game where the winning team relied more on the running game than on the passing game. In yardage and in scoring. Otherwise the other two Super Bowls were pass heavy in yardage and scoring, and that includes the losing team.
