In Response to Re: Bill Belichick provides some great answers about the slow death of 300-carry backs : Obviously he thought the RB's in 08 had enough to take the ball away from Matt Cassel , who despite a valiant effort was a steep drop off from TB. Wasn't till about week 10 that they let Cassel do anything but manage games. It's not like BB hasn't tried to improve the run game. He drafted 3 RB's high during that time and got a few vets to help. He didn't ignore it, it just hasn't worked out yet. ly. BJGE, Vereen, Faulk all injured. Ridley and Woody were the only healthy ones for the most part. We all know how maroney worked out. 1 good year, injuries, then dancing with the stars.

Ahh, he thought Maroney and Morris could handle a big load but not Benny and Ridley. I get it.
Wake up on this one Pezz. We have the best offensive line coach in the league, maybe ever. if we choose to run the ball a lot like 04, 07, 08 and 2010(OB forced to use the run with the trade of a disgruntled Moss) we have proven we can do it, and be one of the best at it, no matter who the RB is.
We just choose not to depending on who is calling the plays. BB cannot micro manage his OC's, he does not micro manage his coordinators. A great leader relies on the people around him. When you have situations out of your control(OC's leaving for promotions) you suffer.
McD will bring back an offense with versatility. He learned from one of the best. Weiss never used talent as an excuse. it is the very reason that despite having very poor RB talent in 2003 he ran the sht out of the ball against Panthers in the SB.
Brady,runningbacks, PA,screens,hitting the open man. That was the formula for a successful post season offense.
Being predictable was never part of the equation.
