Ravens Vs. 49ers - HOLY HELL, did you know this?
First let me say congratulations to all of Ravens nation. No one can ever take this victory away from you, EVER! With that said, I came across an interesting statistic that was talked about today on one of the sports networks that I had to post on as I believe it will give the 49ers' superbowl loss a DUBIOUS distinction, possibly for all-time. In short, in the history of the NFL (and this is either championship games or SB - can't recall which), when a team averaged 7.5 yards a play, as the 49ers did, they won in EVERY case. Okay, no biggie, right? Wrong!!! Not only did these teams win, they won by at least 30 points or more in each case!!!!
In your opinion, does this stat make you look at the game any differently? Does this make the Ravens win more impressive or less impressive (e.g. the 49ers lost it more than the Ravens won it)? Really think about how DOMINANT a stat like that is. Losing by 30 is an @$$ kicking. The 9ers arguably moved the ball in this way and still lost by 3. DAMN I'd be pissed if I was a 49er or 9ers fan. LOL
