In the Starting Line-Up
"If they don’t turn the ball over and put themselves in a position to have to convert 5-6 3rd downs on drives they won’t win anyway."I absolutely did not say if you disagree you shouldn’t respond.
I said that if you are going to post that the defined topic has no value then don’t post about it. If the topic has no value why would you post about it? If you want to post about a different topic make a thread about it. That is not attitude, it’s requesting you stay in topic.
If they don’t turn the ball over and put themselves in a position to have to convert 5-6 3rd downs on drives they won’t win anyway.
This has been a consistent issue for years that reared it’s head in a big way this year.
Of course there are many factors in teams winning and losing. Everyone of them is very important, and often the turnover issue is CAUSED by an issue like this, which absolutely has happened this year, where an offense that isn’t scoring gets behind and turns the ball over.
This ^ has no basis in truth whatsoever, it's a made up stat... especially for a team tenth best in the NFL in 3rd down conversions.
The last few years has zero to do with this year, literally nothing. Different roster, different QB, different team. Every year is a new year.
The Pat's offense turned the ball over on the opening drive last game, the score was irrelevant. In the opening game of the season Mac and the offense moved the ball the entire length of the field as time was winding down and were about to seal the game when Damien Harris fumbled... the one point difference in the score was irrelevant... the turnover wasn't.
Putting themselves in third and short isn't a problem, putting themselves in third and long because an offensive linemen jumped offsides on the previous play is a problem. I disagree with the premise of your topic, and that's very much on topic... you just don't like that I disagree.
