    Law of averages... you pass that many times with Favre, you're asking for trouble

    Hence, we lost that game because we passed the ball 50 times.
    Faulty logic.
    The Vikings lost that game because the other team scored more points.
    There are probably 20 individual plays in the game where a points swing was in place.
    Picking just 2 of them to prove a point is a fallacy.

    =Z=
    Faulty logic? I don't think so, I think it was rather obvious... in fact, I believe most of the argument for getting Favre was that he WOULDN'T have to throw the ball 50 times...

    I guess some have forgotten that though.

    At least the professionals agree with me though...

    http://espn.go.com/nfl/powerrankings

    Brett Favre threw 51 passes against Pittsburgh. That's way too many attempts for a team with Adrian Peterson.

    Lol!
    Saying the pros agree with you, then linking to the bullshit powerrankings is laughable.
    Don't care about the rankings, but they are clearly right.

    50+ pass attempts for Favre = loss.
    You're as stubborn as a mule.

    Only if you refuse to agree with the basic logic presented to you.

    Most people just want to disagree with me for the sake of disagreeing with me.

    What basic logic? Many teams have won passing more than running, including us this year.

    Really? With a 40-year old QB? Who?
    [/quote]

    well, for starters we are.
    Warren Moon did it.
    There aren't alot of 40 year old QB's around, but the one we have is probably best known for his durability and longevity.

    If this person was a professional wouldn't he be coaching instead of writing?
    Hmmmmmm.

    I know it is hard for you to comprehend but writer's aren't always correct either.
    By theory that statement is correct.
    However, you cannot always play standardized football.
    You have to go with the situation.
    For the record everyone on this site knows how many times Favre threw the ball.
    Why do you find it necessary to post the same thing 20 times?
    because not even the known favre-haters agree with him.
    he's not sure if they just haven't seen his posts, or choose not to get involved because of how rediculous his arguments are.
    I see.
    I knew it was something like that.
    I still would like to see CMac's comments on the whole coach vs. writer question.
    Should be interesting.
    But I know that makes to much sense for him to have a one stat tell all for it so he will ignore it as usual.
    [/quote]

    See, for me this is very basic and simple.

    You don't have an argument anymore because it's quite obvious that the number of passing attempts is what lost us the game... so now you have to criticize the fact that I used professional writers to support my opinion. I'm using it to show that even the simple mind of a sports writer can comprehend that... when you have arguably the best backfield in football and a 40-year old QB... probably shouldn't pass 50 times.

    Again, you can attack me or the article writer all you want, but it's merely out of anger and frustration of me being right. I still have yet to see anything resembling an intelligent argument from you on the topic other than, "It was the flow of the game..." which I completely disagree with. Your opinions are flimsy at best.

    But, if you must reach back to something I said about sports writers 2 or 3 weeks ago to make my argument look bad, please be my guest.
    [/quote]

    if its so obvoius, why are you one of the only people who think that?
    [/quote]

    Oh, I'm sure others agree with me... it just pains them too much to admit it.

    But, I guess I'll just have to learn that people on internet football forums may not agree with me... as hard as it may be to accept that. Tomorrow is a new day,
    and I'll put a new foot forward... one step at a time.

    Obvious? What evidence have you presented that passing lost us the game other than a couple sports writers who are just like me or you? An idiot with a computer. Favre threw 46 times against the 49ers and we won! So 4 more passes caused us to lose a game? LOL, NO! Turnovers did.

    you're probably right.

    Quick question for you though, in a game where we were struggling running the ball, but put up 334 yards passing, why would we start running more?
    Seems to me the only reason we were in position to score was because we could pass effectively.

    See, for me this is very basic and simple.

    You don't have an argument anymore because it's quite obvious that the number of passing attempts is what lost us the game... so now you have to criticize the fact that I used professional writers to support my opinion. I'm using it to show that even the simple mind of a sports writer can comprehend that... when you have arguably the best backfield in football and a 40-year old QB... probably shouldn't pass 50 times.

    Again, you can attack me or the article writer all you want, but it's merely out of anger and frustration of me being right. I still have yet to see anything resembling an intelligent argument from you on the topic other than, "It was the flow of the game..." which I completely disagree with. Your opinions are flimsy at best.

    But, if you must reach back to something I said about sports writers 2 or 3 weeks ago to make my argument look bad, please be my guest.

    if its so obvoius, why are you one of the only people who think that?

    Oh, I'm sure others agree with me... it just pains them too much to admit it.

    But, I guess I'll just have to learn that people on internet football forums may not agree with me... as hard as it may be to accept that. Tomorrow is a new day,
    and I'll put a new foot forward... one step at a time.

    you're probably right.

    Quick question for you though, in a game where we were struggling running the ball, but put up 334 yards passing, why would we start running more?
    Seems to me the only reason we were in position to score was because we could pass effectively.

    I definitely would have run on the 1/2 yard line... or on first down after Peterson plowed his way though to the first down marker... which left me scratching my head at the time.

    But whatever, you guys would rather have 50 passing attempts and lose. I get it.

    Law of averages... you pass that many times with Favre, you're asking for trouble

    Hence, we lost that game because we passed the ball 50 times.
    Faulty logic.
    The Vikings lost that game because the other team scored more points.
    There are probably 20 individual plays in the game where a points swing was in place.
    Picking just 2 of them to prove a point is a fallacy.

    =Z=
    Faulty logic? I don't think so, I think it was rather obvious... in fact, I believe most of the argument for getting Favre was that he WOULDN'T have to throw the ball 50 times...

    I guess some have forgotten that though.

    At least the professionals agree with me though...

    Brett Favre threw 51 passes against Pittsburgh. That's way too many attempts for a team with Adrian Peterson.

    Lol!
    Saying the pros agree with you, then linking to the bullshit powerrankings is laughable.
    Don't care about the rankings, but they are clearly right.

    50+ pass attempts for Favre = loss.
    You're as stubborn as a mule.

    What basic logic? Many teams have won passing more than running, including us this year.

    All those teams are winning with 40 year old QBs thowing over 50 times?

    Wow... had no idea Aaron Rogers was 40. He looks great for his age.
