The NFL---It's really not that difficult

to coach on game day. Yes, there is some serious work that goes into everything that leads to game day. But game day is not that hard in most cases. It's pretty simple---run the goddamned ball and stick to the basics. Even if you're not getting much yardage, run the goddamned ball. Aside from giving your D a break, it makes the opposing D-line work harder. When you face a run block, you are powerlifting the other guy. When you face a pass block, the other guy is powerlifting you. You make the opposing D bench press 300 lbs 10 more times a game, then their legs are more tired and in crunch time their pass rush is just a fraction slower. That fraction is what decides ballgames. We went over this last year. Run the damn ball. Nothing good really happens when your QB chucks the ball 40+ times a game (unless you have also run it about 30 times, but that rarely happens anyway).

The Steelers ran the ball 18 times and threw it 40 times yesterday. Two of the rushes were by Roethlisberger, scrambles, so basically they had 19 running plays to 42 passing plays. Nice loss there guys, and kiss the fucking division goodbye!

The Eagles outdid everyone yesterday though. They ran it 13 times and threw it 55 times. Nice loss, guys!

Dallas ran the ball 14 times and threw it 39 times. Nice loss there, fuckers.

It almost never fails---throw the ball that many times, and end up with a loss.

Like last year, Indianapolis is the exception. They win a lot of games by chucking the pill all over the place. And if this keeps up, like last year they'll have an early playoff exit. The only time they fared better, when they won the Superbowl in the 06 season, they ran the ball really well and did so thru the playoffs, and Manning didn't have gaudy stats.
Look it up.

Aw, man, I couldn't fucking agree more. That Steeler game was pathetic and precisely for the reasons you cite. And we have a running game now, goddammit use it and stick with it. Other shit opens up. I never thought of the logic behind it from the standpoint you mentioned, the power lifting business, etc. but that makes it all the more vital it be done. Besides the fact you just have to keep a defense honest. They knew what Ben was going to do (who played horribly. by the way) all day long and they just teed off on him. Especially from the defensive end position. Fuck! The Steelers, like the Eagles, are in deep shit. And speaking of the Eagles, (for our friend you know who), Andy Reid should be fired. He doesn't even CONSIDER a running game in ANY situation.

Good stuff, as usual, Stache, as depressing as the truth is!

Thanks for the comments, Scrib50. I saw only about half the Steeler game yesterday and, while Ben wasn't stellar, I saw Wallace and Holmes drop 4 passes that should've been caught. Regardless, why the fuck are they not running it 30 times? Dammit all, it's not like they are 3TDs behind in the 4th qtr! As for run blocking vs pass blocking, it is something I learned a long time ago from Madden. People like to make fun of him, but he was really good at the fundamentals of the game. Lines love to run block and hate to pass block for a reason---when you run, you dish out the punishment while when you pass you absorb the punishment. I mean, it is not fucking rocket science.
As for Andy Reid, I covered this after last year's NFC champ game---guy just drives one crazy.
I expected better from Tomlin against the Bengals though---the division, and potentially a playoff berth, was on the line in that game.
This year I'm stuck here watching the Colts win games they should lose and watching the Steelers lose games they should win. Damn, like I need any more stress....

Bikemonkey,
Glad to see that your Chargers' recent success has you giddy enough to taunt CPP and the Iggles. Though, as I've warned you before, your football happiness rests in the hands of one Norval Turner, so there is reason to be concerned. I am kinda proud though that my preseason prediction re the Chargers FUQIT quotient is proving true and they are winning despite their feckless leader.

CPP,
The Iggles pull this shit every year but still end up winning the division or something like that, right? So as long as Reid stops smoking his stash during the playoffs you still have hope. Not that you should care---your Jankeys just won a championship. Sure, it was only in MLB so no one cares, but still.... Cheers!
