I am comparing this year's stats to this year's stats because they are the most relevant. If the most relevant stats also help my point, it is because I am right.
Clearly I, along with the majority of experts were wrong about them being better. We beat them at their place with our QB struggling for most of 4 quarters. We were the better team.Pondering Her Percy wrote: ↑Thu Mar 26, 2020 12:19 pmAnd Vikings a slightly better team? Coming from the guy that said this before the saints game this year:
If the Vikings win, it is because the OC called a great game and Zimmer out coached Peyton on defense. They are a better team than we are. Much better.
But now all of the sudden since you’re defending teddy, the Vikings were a slightly better team than the saints this year?? Something isn’t adding up.
However, weren't you arguing they were not the better team before that game? Then we beat them and that somehow now makes them better than us? That doesn't make any sense.
Much better offensive linePondering Her Percy wrote: ↑Thu Mar 26, 2020 12:19 pm
Given the 2015 and 2019 were very similar in many ways, does anyone find it odd that even with cousins in a run first offense, just like Teddy was in in 2015, cousins drastically outperformed Teddy in just about any passing category you could ask for. And also got a playoff win on the road as a massive underdog.
There really isn’t even an argument here when comparing the two.
Much better receivers
A RB who helps the passing game and doesn't detract from it
A QB passing out of formations that fit his strengths versus one passing out of formations that fit his RB's (Shotgun versus under center)
A QB in his EIGHTH season versus one in his SECOND.
Thy did throw a similar number of times though, so I guess they are the exact same.
