350 on the ground

22 posts in this topic

I remember when we gave up that much against the Jags and lost.

 

That is the only time I remember another team giving up that many rushing yards.

Good thing is, last time we gave up that many yards we buckled up the d and won the an that year!

Better it happened today than in the playoffs. Maybe, just maybe we can fix this a little.

Linebackers and D Line appeared tp be flowing in the same direction on some play which left huge cut back running lanes

Before today, has any team ever given up 350 yards rushing and won?

That's insane, shows how bad Brady Quinn is. I can only imagine if the Colts rushed for 350 yards we would've blown them out and scored 50 points.

And how many TDs did those 350 yards turn into?

Brady Quinn is so bad, he can lose a game his running backs won

The Colts allowed 376 on the ground, and barely lost.

 

If this is a new record, allowing the most rushing yards and winning, then that's a record not to be proud of.

Not excuse able but the whole front line was out plus Conner out and it sounds like freeman was extremely limited. Injuries to the front seven caught up to them.

Isn't it amazing that he keeps getting jobs?  He must hold one mean clipboard.

 

BTW, Charles had 165 against the Browns a few weeks ago and they lost by 23.  Not sure that means anything other than it's not how many yards you get, unless a bunch of them end past the goal line.

When we get Connor & Johnson back things will improve. Angerer couldnt shed blocks today and Freeman was limited.

It was 375, and we lost 44-17.

 

I can't imagine anyone has given up more in a win, particularly in regulation.

Thankfully POINTS determine ballgames and not yards. I could have cared less if they ran for a 1000 yards. The defense was brick-solid in the redzone, but horrendous between the 20's.

Do ya really think we would have have been brick solid in the redzone if that would have been Tom Brady at QB or even Flacco (since we will likely play the Ravens in the WC). I definitly care how many yards we give up because that is an indicator our defense is not that good and good offenses will exploit it. Went with the dont break strategy and we eventually broke come playoff time UNTIL our defense came up BIG and led us to our SB win in 06

Something I've noticed about our philosophy is that we just completely ignore their strengths. Calvin Johnson, possibly best receiver in the NFL? Psh, no need for double teams, Vaughn's got this. 12 catches, 176 yards--Colts win the game anyways. Same thing here. They can go average a freaking 8 ypc, but that didn't translate into a win.

When you can show me a game where a team won because they had more yards than the other team and yards were the determining factor I will give "yards" more credence.

My post was directly related to today's game and yes they were solid today in the redzone and horrible between the 20's. Brady probably would have been better, and Flacco isn't much of a step up from Brady Quinn in my opinion, but again this has nothing to do with my original post about "today's" game.

I think you're trying to decipher from my post that you think I'm saying the defense was good, which they weren't, BUT they were good enough to keep the Chiefs to 13 points and that's what matters.

We were lucky to be playing KC today any decent team blows us out of the water today. We are really hurting in the front seven of our starters in the front seven the only two healthy at the moment are Freeney and Mathis and they are not known for run stopping. We need Johnson, Redding, Conner, and Freeman to get healthy.
