NFL 2013 Playoffs - Page 6

post #151 of 232
Regardless of who wins, I hope Flaccid Flacco has another good game. He's been on a roll chucking the ball up for grabs and having Smith and Bolden take the ball away from hapless defenders. Post game, then the Ravens will have to shell out huge bucks to re-eign him, overpay and hurt their cap constrained ability to re-sign guys like Reed and find a replacement for accessory after the fact turned Preacher. Their window is now. If they win it, great! If not, I don't expect them to go to the AFCCG again next year. SF in contrast is built to contend for the next few years.

Oh no -- I'm definitely pulling for the 'Niners. eek.gif I was just implying that if one is a die-hard Ravens fan, one might be more tempted to "overlook" Lewis' crimes. Barry Bonds got cheers in San Francisco and jeers everywhere else, etc.

You know O.J. has to be looking at Lewis and thinking: Hey, why me? tongue.gif

*sigh* I'm guessing reading comprehension wasn't your strong suit in school...? Hey, it's okay, no shame in that -- I once flunked chemistry.

Nate Silver Picks the Super Bowl!

Does defense win championships? Stat-geek sports fans like me tend to distrust this old saying. Scoring a point helps just as much as allowing one hurts. And in football, the proposition risks ignoring the role played by the likes of Tom Brady.

It is the case, however, that the better defensive team has usually won the Super Bowl — and done so far more consistently than offensive juggernauts. The Web site Pro Football Reference publishes a statistic called the Simple Rating System (S.R.S.), which evaluates each team’s offense and defense based on the number of points it scored and allowed relative to the league average and adjusted for strength of schedule. Of the 92 teams to have played in the Super Bowl before this year, I identified those with the 20 best defensive and offensive ratings, according to S.R.S. (see charts above). The defensive list contains teams that you would expect, like the 1985 Bears. These teams have compiled a 14-6 record (.700) in the Super Bowl. Their winning percentage is actually nearly 80 percent when you ignore the three cases, Super Bowls IV, VIII and XLV, when two of the all-time great defensive teams faced each other.

The 20 best offensive teams, however, are just 10-10 in the Super Bowl. There have been successes in this group, like the Saints under Drew Brees, but there have been just as many failures, including two of Brady’s Patriots teams. (During his three championships, the Patriots had a much better balance between offense and defense.)

The reasons that exceptional defenses fare so much better in the Super Bowl are still somewhat murky, but this factor bodes well for this year’s 49ers, whose defense belongs in the elite group, according to S.R.S. (it ranks 17th among Super Bowl teams). The Ravens, despite all the hype surrounding Ray Lewis, allowed a rather pedestrian 21.5 points per game this year. The 49ers also have the better offense, according to S.R.S., so there isn’t much to recommend the Ravens . . . unless you look at the more sophisticated rankings published by Football Outsiders. Their system, known as Defense-adjusted Value Over Average (D.V.O.A.), accounts for a team’s success or failure on every play it ran during the year and not just on final scores.

Those rankings find that while the 49ers had the better offense and defense, the Ravens had the best special teams in the league this year. If they do pull off the upset, on the heels of Steve Weatherford’s game-changing performance for the Giants in last year’s Super Bowl, perhaps it will be time for a new cliché: punters win championships. But don’t count on that.

Niners win,maybe not as high scoring on both sides of the ball as some think. Don't watch Killer Joe before eating that game day bucket of chicken.

Lessee... on tap for the Big Game we have, amongst others, Shock-Top - a Belgian wheat ale, and Utica Club which, I'm proud to say, was the first beer sold in the United States after prohibition, which made have made it a favorite of Nucky Thompson. tongue.gif Sort of like Northern Lights #5 in Oregon or Red Kush in Colorado will someday be known. wink.gif

Dear CBS (and all other football networks),

You see that one graphic that's up during the superbowl? That's all you ever needs. Stop with the fantasy football crap. Don't permanently keep other games scores up. Just show the other games scores every few minutes. But no League of Dorks stats. People already have their stupid teams set, stop bothering me with their OCD need to get updated after a 3 yard run by covering up the games.

Also, not sure why CBS doesn't have more mics on the players then the crowd. Usually they are good with that. Let's not do the same crap NBC and ESPN does with the sound concentrating on the fans and not the actual game.
