This is yinzer nation in the offseason:

This is yinzer nation after a close loss:
"BEN WHY DIDN'T YINZ DO MORE! YINZ STINK! YINZ GOTTA SCORE MORE POINTS! BOOOOOOOOO!"
Don't demand the offense play ball-control and then go on demanding more points. Want more points? Gotta make some quick strikes and not worry about protecting the defense all the time.
NFL Team Passing Play Percentage
Steelers 13th 59.7% Pass
Green Bay 15th 58.5% Pass
New England 20th 56.1% Pass
Denver 21st 55.9% Pass
The 6 teams who passed the most frequently are out of the playoffs- Saints included. Quick!!!! Pass more!!!!
It turns out 3 of the 4 elite quarterbacks pass less than Roethlisberger percentage wise. Next theory that puts the responsibility on everyone but Ben please.
The teams that run the most you ask? Seattle, Washington, San Francisco, and Minnesota are 4 of the 5 who run the most.
Remember kids, it is a new league!!!!! Running doesn't work!!!!! Just ask GoFor7!!!!!
