Speaking of swinging... Was that change painful for ya?
Actually we're all off by about 7000 yrs if you really want to be technical about it.
Soccer, rugby, football has all evolved into the current NFl with a play-off system for about 50 yrs.
Now that we got the technicalities out of the way, my point was that Modern day football has changed dramatically, since that time.
Much more emphasis was on running the ball , not so much now. It's actually been changing since the 70's. Really the 70's were an anomaly from what I understand.
The problem with you missy, is that you don't listen.
No one is suggesting it should be eliminated or that it's not important.
It's in your fantasy world that you believe rushing is the end-all-be-all, when it's actually a minor, yet still significant part of the game.
The 2 major components are O & D and also special teams which has also been altered significantly. All those things clicking, make a successful team, not just one part of the defense or offense or ST
. There are many moving parts that require adjustments in every single game.
Altering one component of an already effective Offense is not likely to make all the difference in the world. They've made many changes to the offense this year and they will all help to make it better. (coaching, receivers, rb's. ect)
The major problem is more in the vast difference between the O and the D.
One is top ranked and the other is at the bottom of the barrel.
Until the D can get on par with the O, it does not help the game. It only hinders it.
How often does a 31st ranked D go to the SB? Once that I know of.
How often do teams with less than stellar run games go to the SB. How about last year and the year before that and the year before that and the year before that.
O and D have to be good, not just one single component of either.
You can get by with so-so safeties if you got a strong front 4 or 7.
You can get by on O with a OK or even deficient run game.
It's just extremely difficult if one whole side of the ball sucks. That only makes for half a team.
It's like they're always playing with a man in the penalty box.
Hard to win when you're always playing defense.
So, instead of making a mockery of the coaching staff, IMO, you should be grateful that they even got the SB with that 31st ranked D as it's never happened before and it's not likely to ever happen again.
