    i was watching first take and so on and then i went and looked at dilfers output on his superbowl run compared to what jimmy has done.... unless he goes off on KC what he has done in 2 wins is hilarious so far.


    so far in 2 games he has

    17 for 27 for 208 yards 1 touchdown and 1 interception and he is 2-0 in a tough nfc.

    So far yes but that's not his fault. He has an elite defense and has had the luxury of being able to turn around and hand the ball off. SF absolutely ran it down MN and GB's throats and neither team even came remotely close to stopping it.

    I mean.. When is the last time that a QB played the whole game and only threw 8 passes in a conference championship game? Might not be too long ago but that just seems like super rare territory to me, especially after the 70s and 80s

    Your baby can't do this

    You could also argue he got carried to his 49ers contract.

    Maybe not stat wise but Trent Dilfer and even Brad Johnson were carried more.
    You canít penalize Jimmy G cause the run game was so dominant.
    The 49ers didnít run because they had too. They did it cause it couldnít be stopped.

    Reminds me of Wilson in the Lynch/LOB days.

    You can't simply go on stats, first of all.......and then just go on playoff stats on top of that....to determine whether a QB was 'carried' to the Super Bowl. His efforts all season helped set the team up to be where they were in the playoffs.
    gotta love 'referential' treatment

    This. He attempted more passes, but only because Pete Carroll wanted him to, not because he needed him. Hell, they had like a 24 point lead in the SB before Wilson even had 100 yards.

    It doesnít seem to me like heís throwing so little because hes inept but rather because they simply donít need it. No one can stop their running game and thatís inherently safer.

    This. So much. Just because you run a lot doesnít mean your QB isnít good. Conversely just because you throw a lot doesnít mean your QB is good. If you gain 6 yards per rush on first down, and 3.5 per pass, why would you throw it?

    In the playoffs, yes, his output has been Dilfer like in it's volume. But keep in mind:

    Dilfer SB Regular season:

    1,500 yds, 12 TDs, 11 INTs, 76.6 QB Rating

    Jimmy G SB Regular season:

    3,900 yds, 27 TDs, 13 INTs, 102 QB Rating


    Dilfer was legitimately carried all season. Jimmy was not.

    And just to clarify, I think if they need to pass, he can.

    We will see in the Superbowl, probably.

    Given how the Chiefs beat the Titans (who ran a similar gameplan to the 49ers), it seems probable that the 49ers will need a passing game to keep up.
    Dak: 15,778 @ 65.8%, 7.6 per att, 97+21 TD, 36 INT+31 FMB, 97.0 Rate
    Wentz: 14,191 @ 63.8%, 6.9 per att, 97+3 TD, 35 INT+48 FMB, 92.7 Rate
