No, it was stated the run game carried him. Our run game was good, not great. people don't realize this b/c they just look at accumulated stats w/o context. he led them to almost 30 PPG which was almost a TD more per game than they were getting w/ Foles against the much tougher portion of their sched. Stop worrying about meaningless fantasy #s.
By the way, he only lost 3 fumbles. almost 30 PPG, you are fellating Fitz and we have averaged 25 PPG w/ him this year. also, in 10 games Fitz has been the beneficiary of 22 TOs, Sanchez in 9 last year was the beneficiary of 18.
mark isn't done, he was really good last year. whether he is or not I don't care, I care about what he did for us and I appreciate that. No he wasn't great but he stepped up for us and helped us win a lot of games. His career ended here for many reasons.
I deal in reality. 5-2 when he took over, finished 10-6. faced much tougher portion of schedule which included 2 games w/ dallas, a game w/ Carolina and games w/ Sea and GB yet led O to almost a TD more per game. Not bad for a guy who sucks.
back to Fitz, he won me over. Can he keep it up? we'll see, the next win he leads us to(better be Sunday) will be a new career high.
he was excellent in postseason, a HUGE factor in winning all 4 of those games. nearly flawless at Cincy, made big plays and outplayed Rivers at SD, Kept us in game at Indy then in 2010 after a slow start at Indy led GW drive, was outstanding at NE, and nearly brought us back from 24-0 down at Pitt. Hard to win when you are giving up 45 PPG.
it's funny how people remember things. we had 3-4 huge ground games that skewed the rush #s in 2009 and were an average run team in 2010 where we gave up a lot more PPG and the QB led us to 5-6 late game comebacks after defensive/run game failures but we remember what we want to remember. couldn't even get to the playoffs in 2008 w/. similar roster, easier sched, HOF QB and no Brady but no matter who our QB was the next 2 years we were guaranteed to make it!
didn't 2 teams tie for the best record? so really we had the THIRD best record in the league, right? and those 2 teams w/ better records played in a much tougher division than we did. then we sat back and watched those 2 teams w/ better records play each other and beat each other up a bit, then we hosted a playoff game needing one home win to get in against a team w/ a better record that beat us in the reg season but we didn't have any breaks I am trying to help you not look as foolish as you do on a regular basis. Please allow me to.
people don't understand how vital mark was to those runs. it's sad.
I am on board w/ Fitz. he has played really well the last 5-6 weeks or so after a sluggish start. we started losing games b/c we stopped running, started dropping passes and the D was awful not b/c of Fitz.
