Minnesota is averaging 104 yds per game, with 21 rushes per.

Let's see...6 more rushes per game at 3.8 ypc means about 21 more yard per game which is the difference between these two teams average ypg. Hmmm, seems to me like the Minnesota O-line is performing about the same as the Miami O-line.

But I guess I don't know what I am talking about.


So Minnesota is averaging 20 MORE yards per game on 6 LESS carries than Miami? Are those stats right (I thought Minn rushed more than that)? If so, how does that make the two line's performance similar?

I have to say, you might not know what you are talking about.
I am so smart. S-M-R-T

Here's the problem with your comparison: Ronnie Brown isn't averaging 3.9 ypc. He's getting 3.3 ypc. Those reverse yards are skewing the stats you're arguing with by a full .6 ypc (which while a small number is a huge difference in the long run. For a featured RB an extra .6 ypc is ~200 more yards at year's end).

Maybe get the numbers right next time if you're going to use stats.

Guess he finally realized what he was saying made no sense.

And I agree the play calling has been horrendous. I think because they got Culpepper they thought they'd be able to just have him stand back there and launch the deep pass. Well you need time to do that and you need to commit to the run so the PA works. Mularkey sucks.
So they weren't the best...and may have ended the worst. SO WHAT!
