Default Re: The scoring problem has nothing to do with the passing game

25 of 33 of New England's non-passing tds were from rushing touchdowns.

Brady rushed for 4 himself. He threw for 38. Brady's offense = 38 (Tom) + 25 (Rush) = 63 tds from the offense.

Roethlisberger's offense = 26 (Ben) + 1 (Batch) + 7 (Rush) = 34 tds from the offense.

Wow. Tom Brady threw for more tds than Pittsburgh's offense could put up total. Kind of embarassing.

Don't pretend that New England's passing offense didn't set up their run to punch it in from a couple yards out. That would be dishonest. NE was 4th in passing last year and 2nd this year. Pittsburgh was 10th last year and 14th this year. Not so good from a top 5 qb.

Stevan Ridley is the reason the Pats have a rushing attack again. They went from 20th to 7th on the strength of his running.

Last year when the Pats were 20th in rushing they were still 3rd in rushing tds with 18. Why? BECAUSE THEIR PASSING GAME PUTS THE BALL ON THE GOAL LINE.

Pats offense: 2 1st rd picks 0 at skill positions 36 ppg

Steelers offense: 5 1st rd picks 3 at skill positions 21 ppg
