Our RB may have led the league in rushing touchdowns but does it matter who gets in the endzone as long as someone does? We didn't lead the league in rushing touchdowns in other words. We were fourth. Ironically the Patriots led in rushing touchdowns and their backs hit the endzone more than ours.

Plus let's be honest...we can grab the end of the year stats all we want but down the stretch this was limited. Just like we were top 10 in scoring. Yeah, but it breaks down like this:

First 7 games

216 points = 30.9 avg. per game

21 Offensive Touchdowns

Last 9 games

200 points = 22.2 avg. per game
*77 of those 200 points came in two games vs Jaguars/Lions for 39% of the complete total

20 Offensive Touchdowns

Sorry, that is an unimpressive way to finish the second half of your season and speaks of some issues. Can't count on always having Jaguars and Lions defenses in the playoffs, heh. It was like we reversed it. First 7 games we scored our most TD's on the Broncs and Ravens. Last 9 we scored our most on Jags and Lions. So from top caliber teams to only scoring on the bottom barrel. We couldn't even score on the Colts/Vikes...playoff teams but medicore defenses.

Can we get yards? Yes. But prolific offenses get touchdowns which down the stretch we seemed foreign to. We scored SIX freaking points against the medicore defense of the Viqueens. No one scored that low against them. At home no less.

Let's look even more so...there was a stretch during the end of the year we didn't score an offensive toucdown for 9 freaking quarters. And we weren't playing some elite teams...we were playing the darn Colts and Vikings. So we take this into the playoffs and once again we're gaining yards and no touchdowns against the Bengals though at least they are a good defense and the Patriots...well...we all remember that TKO from every facet of the game except (ironically) special teams.

So yeah, this offense was limited. They need to develop a way to get the ball in the endzone. We were 18th in passing touchdowns despite Schaub's 4k yards so again...yards and seldom touchdowns.

Another point of limitation is the deep game. Can't remember precisely as I put it in another thread but of the quarterbacks going in the postseason we threw 20+ the least other than Kap (who was right behind Schaub with far less games so he'd surpass him), Ponder and RG3.

So yeah...limited. This baby is quacking lol.
