Not every team needs a top offense to win games in the NFL. Pittsburgh Steelers, 49ers and plenty of other teams use a conservative approach to the game.
You have conservative, run first, defensive heavy teams, middle of the line balanced teams, and high powered offenses with poor defenses.
There's no right or wrong way of going about it. Tom Brady won Superbowls on final kicks of his kicker. Someone still had to put them in position. Likewise the higher scoring PPG offense DIDN'T win the superbowl last year.
Conservative is fine, but Tim is downright ineffective. Sure, he'll burst some nice runs, but that's generally gonna happen late in the game in which the score is very close. What happens when our D can't keep the opposing O out of the EZ? Or what happens when Folk isn't banging in these huge ass FGs? Tim is going to have to put up points, and he simply cannot do it. Yes, he's had moments where he's made some clutch plays, but that is not who Tim is. Tim is this: If the D can play lights out and keep this game EXTREMELY close, I can get Prater around midfield to get points.
Sorry, but I'm not signing up for that gimmick. And believe me, I don't want the Sanchez project either. I want a normal ****ing QB who can lead an offense and isn't gonna turn the ball over like a *****. Neither Tim or Mark are those guys.
