KC actually won TOP in the SB. 33:13 - 26:47 almost 7 minutes.
49ers led by 10pts until 6 minites left in the game.
When playing a high flying opponent. TOP is definitely the formula you want to go. Keep them off the field as much as possible.
SF wasn't able to win the TOP like they wanted to, and were still in position to win the SB. I agree they nees more balance. Saying that I believe the Colts will have great balance when needed.
They choked down the stretch.
If we want to beat KC, we better win the TOP. That's all I know. TOP is the winning recipe when playing high flying teams. That doesn't mean you have to pound the ball to control the clock. Rivers is actually one of the best at using up the clock, even while running a balance O.
Really wasn't even any reason to clap back in the first place though. I was just making a simple point, as to why we could still get there if we have to go on the road.
Look at my first post about Pascal. I like the guy. Said so in my first post. I’m glad we have him. Said that too.
And yes, using him as a decoy in play action is a very good idea! He’s known for his excellent blocking on running plays.
I’m not a Pascal hater. I really do like the guy. Glad he’s a Colt.
Yeah, not to sure what he is talking about.
Thread literally about 2 teams making the SB.
He gives his reason for wanting HFA, because he is afraid of going on the road.
I give a reason why I think we travel well and can still get there.
He brings up a team that:
1. Made the SB(using our style)
2. Had HFA and didn't play a road game.(his biggest worry)
3.SB is neutral location, both teams travel(when they lost)
Didn't say it was lousy. Point is, TOP isn't always a winning recipe, especially when playing high flying O. SF needs more balance on O.
They did have a soft schedule though.
I'd add that they lost to Baltimore too.
