Hopelly the conference championships put an end to this MYTH that this is now an offensive league with defense becoming an afterthought. Neither team reached the SuperBowl completing more then 21 passes and neither QB won because of his legs. We all just watched two teams go on the road, control the game with the running backs, and shut Both HIGH POWERED SEXY OFFENSES OUT in the second half. Down 17pts The niners never abandoned the run game. Of course, both winning QBs had to make enough plays with their arms from the pocket to get the win, but PHYSICAL FOOTBALL is what won THIS YEAR! THESE games weren't about College gimicks, they weren't about completing 36-50 passes, it was about being TOUGH, playing Physical football, defenses adjustments at halftime, that did not allow a single point to the most explosive offenses in the NFL both of which were playing at home. 24pts would have got you to the Super Bowl this year.
Undersized and high motor didn't get anyone into the SB this year! BIg, Physical, Punch you in your mouth is what punched the ticket to New Orleans. Two Grueling, Physical games, and the teams that got BEAT UP, LOST!!!
Note to Mr. Andy Reid: Apparently BIG Strong Physical Defenses, and pounding the ball with running backs behind MONSTER physical Olines, STILL MATTERS, regardless of all the new rules tailored for the offense. Don't care if Andy watched those games and got the message, but I hope CHIP and Howie did! All the undersized players on our team need to GO! I want the biggest, strongest, most explosive players at their position. SPEED is a prerequisite of playing in the field. you won't make it to the NFL unless you clock In at a certain time at the combine. OUT of the players that clock in at the right speed, I want THE BIGGEST and STRONGEST! Hope to never hear the word High Motor again...I don't need that. Players that won't back down, and never stop fighting is what we need! obviously TALENT is a prerequisite to players we are looking for, but I need to have the MOST PHYSICAL
