Watched the Cards and Packers yeasterday, and I couldn't help but notice that McFadden was getting smoked just like Gay. He played the run a little better, but that was it. I thought McFadden would have been an upgrade, but after seeing that, I'm so sure anymore. By the way, Mike and Mike and all the announcers talk about how exciting the game was, and I think it got boring. I like offense as much as the next guy, but there has to be a reasonable expectation that the teams can stop each other as well as score.

Not is in this Century.

It is now viewed as the way to win, and if you aren't throwing 40+ times a game, you can't keep up or win.  Even people on here are saying it.  Let Ben sling it and call an occasional running play.

I think Ben throwing it 25 times per game with 70% completion rate, being able to run the ball for 150+, and having a solid D is the best recipe.

I'd almost like to see the Ravens kick the crap out of everyone with their D in the playoffs.

Let me ask this:

If the NFL is now a "Passing League," then how come three of the four playoff winners used dominant running and great defense to win?

It may be a passing league, but at some point, you've got to play some D and run the ball.

No doubt.  That game veered towards arena-style football ball.

Should be another one just like it when AZ travels to NO.

And Gay was terrible for less $$$ than McFadden, at least.

Forget who was dissecting McFadden before the game, someone on the 212 maybe?  Just showed highlight after highlight of him being out of position and lost.
