Likewise, Manning has played from behind in three games this year, which is where a lot of those yards came from.
Does that mean it sucks to have high YPG? Of course not. But it's just not a very good indicator of an offense (or offensive player)'s true strength.
How about Brees and his yards then? If you don't think Denver had momentum prior to McGahee fumbling the balland NE was doing everything to stop Manning the whole game you are nuts. Manning has comeback against the Pats before and BB knows this.
