Good point. So why are passing yards the most important stat(which is what E claimed in another thread)? And why does Denver's less than stellar passing game doom them to mediocrity(which he claimed in this thread)?
I never said that passing yards were the most important stat. I just showed PROOF that the 10 teams with the most passing yards were in all cases but 2 in postseason. 80% correlation. Teams in the top 10 in rushing were nowhere near that level. And why that is the case??? I DONT KNOW. I just saw the correlation and pointed it out.
Why does Denver's less than stellar passing game doom them to mediocrity?? WHY??? Because their defense was playing OUT OF ITS MIND for 2 months and allowed the 5th fewest PPG in the NFL during the first 8 games Tebow started (which included 45 to the Lions & 32 to Minnesota), the rushing game was ranked #1 in the NFL and Denver STILL struggled to win games. If the defense averaged 18 PPG allowed instead of 35, while Orton was the QB, I bet Orton would have had a lot more wins.
