First: I am sorry, but the bolded statement in your second quote is simply inane. There is no such thing as "a balance in overall yardage" there is "overall yardage" and the way that yardage is gained - either through rushing or passing A "balanced attack" obviously does not mean equal yards in each - please don't be obtuse by alleging that was the assertion. GBay did not have a balanced attack last year, they had the 5th best passing offense and the 24th ranked rushing offense.

A balanced attack clearly means that, when comparing a team's rushing and passing attack to the other teams in the league, the passing and rushing attacks rank about the same. Thus, if you have a top 5 passing attack, and top 5 rushing attack, you have a balanced offense. If you have a top 5 passing attack and a bottom 5 rushing attack your offense is unbalanced. The bigger the gap in the ratio, the more unbalanced the offense. Last year, no matter how you try to dress it up, GBay was a very unbalanced team - no one worried how to stop their run game last year. Despite this unbalanced attack, and perhaps because of it, they won the Super Bowl - they simply had a very good offense even if it was completely unbalanced.

Second: You most certainly asserted that a team "barely eeking out wins on a weekly basis" hadn't won a SB. In 10 of its 16 games last year, GB either lost or won by a TD or less. Additionally, in one its TD+ games, it didn't even score a TD; just 3 field goals. At four games, last year, GB had lost to the Bears and scraped by a then very bad Detroit team while blowing out a bad Buffalo team. [You're right, we didn't blow anyone out yet. Not sure, after 4 games, that that fact is proof that we won't blow anyone out this year].

Stop trying to weasel out of your words.
So, just to clarify. By this logic a team that is ranked 32nd in passing, and 32nd in rushing is considered a "balanced attack".

Its awful but its a balanced awful. (And either the OC or the HC is joining ESPN the following year!)

This. That just means it's equal parts awful. Balanced yes, effective no.

The bye is going to seem like forever but came at a good time. Hopefully they can put some schemes in place in time to help Rex out.
Between Torain, Helu and TH we shouldn't have to overwork any particular runner. Personally I think the long term picture for TH is more 3rd down back action, though I could be totally mistaken. Torain is a stud and Helu IMO is a very special RB.

I'm not too worried about leaning on the rushing attack. Mike has been doing it throughout his career. It also tends to wear out defenses much better right, which will be important down the stretch.

Re: Start John Beck Madness Thread

In case there were any questions on how to "be a man".

How to Be a Man

(I didnt see anything regarding "taking responsibility for your Redskins fans message board posts" in there, oh well......)

another note.....what if fanarchist is a female? Should she still try and "be a man?" If yes, fanarchist, a helpful link below.....

You have a stunning grasp of the obvious.

Of course, no one would refer to such a team as having a "balanced offense" as that term generally has positive connotations. Such a team's offense would just be called "awful" but, in fact, they would be equally awful at rushing the ball and passing it and, thus, they would be balanced.

BTW - I made reference only to fanarchist's weaseling. Although at times fanarchist does seem to be a weasel bitch, I certainly intended no gender related characteristics to be inferred. If the weasel reference was offensive to any actual mustelidea mustelinea mustela among my fellow posters, I sincerely apologize for alluding to the negative aspects of your character traits. I promise to be less linear and more elusive in the future.

Re: Start John Beck Madness Thread

John Beck accepts reserve role - The Insider - The Washington Post
Beck hasn’t seen a regular-season NFL snap since 2007, but he knows as well as anyone that the No. 2 quarterback is just a play away from being the starter. Though Shanahan said he hopes to use Grossman all season, the coach also says he has every confidence that Beck could lead this team

When Rex loses a game or two, then, okay, yank him.

But, when you're winning, don't mess with success. Duh.
Would this qualify? Or would he have to be ABSOLUTELY COMPLETELY responsible for the Interceptions? Like walking up to Nate Allen and handing him the ball all wrapped up in philadelphia Eagles gift wrap?

Just wondering.....
