that is great, but without a running game and pass protection, we will have trouble getting to a super bowl.

True, but the 2000 Ravens won a SB a tenacious D and Trent Dilfer w/ somewhat of an anemic offense. We have more talent on this offense. We have the pieces.... we're misfiring on execution.

Are those stats thru 13 games or the entire season?
