Not trying to be a butthead. I just think TOP is overrated. A team like KC who won all year without winning TOP (because of quick strike O) can win TOP when they need to even though it's not their style. To me, it's simply about scoring (fast or slow), but more importantly, moving the chains. And you have to be able to do it by both running and passing. Personally, I like having a quick strike team in the 1st half, and then punishing run game killing TOP the 2nd half while we're up a couple TDs.
I'd also point out it has a lot to do with matchups.
I didnt put the style I expect us to play, like I did in my initial response.
Didn't think I needed to put all that again
This supports my point. They had the best record in the league, while having the combo.
They ran into Derrick Henry, they sure weren't stopping the run that day. Gave up 217 yards. Did win TOP though somehow?
Again, not sure why you want to argue about it. Guess its just one of those days for me.
The only thing that proved is KC won the TOP and stopped the run better that day. Which was in fact the "winning formula". Whichever team did it all year doesnt matter. It is what won the game that day.
they clearly choked. I think we have a more balanced attack that can at the same time control the TOP.
Here's to that. I will be rooting for the same thing my fellow Colts fan.
Thanks for the interaction
