    In Response to Re: Once again....lack of a running game : SB II - Green Bay threw the ball to build a lead. SB IV - KC outpassed Minnesota and had a lead. SBs Buffalo vs. Dallas - Dallas outpassed Buffalo, not the other way around; Buffalo put up volume stats, not efficiency.  Dallas' passing game outclassed Buffalo. SB XL - Seattle put up volume stats; Pittsburgh's passing game put up efficiency.  The run is irrelevent to winning; that is a fact.

    Really, Rusty? Here is a recent (this week) quote from an NFL QB. Not some made up delusion that you commonly reside under.

    "I'm not sure exactly the statistics but when you run the ball and run successfully, it makes everything a lot easier. Everything."

    and:

    "You put a lot more pressure in a lot of areas for people to be sound and perfect if you're not able to get that."

    That's just one day, one guy. If someone asked the other QBs in the league about the run I'm sure their answers would be very similar.

    Your argument is completely off base. 32 NFL offensive coordinators disagree with you. Just admit you are wrong and stop your BS.

    What about this?:

    You won’t hear any complaints from the Patriot running backs that quarterback Tom Brady wants to have a more balanced attack this year as compared to their pass-happy 2009 campaign.

    “Each and every year when you go into training camp and go into preseason, your motto is to be a balanced team,” said veteran running back Kevin Faulk. “As the season goes on, you start to get an identity about yourself and your teammates. Sometimes that may be focusing on the running [game] and sometimes that may be on focusing on the passing [game]. In recent years it has been both for us, but in previous years it has been [focusing] on the pass and second would be [the] running game.”

    The Patriots ranked 12th in the NFL in rushing last season, averaging 120.1 rushing yards per game, but once they got inside the red area, they struggled to run the ball. So Brady would often line up in the shotgun and their opponents knew he wanted to pass. As a result, the Patriots left a lot of points on the board. They ranked 13th in red-zone efficiency last season, with 34 touchdowns in 65 chances (52 percent).

    Knowing that’s where they needed work, Bill Belichick decided to run the ball 15 times against the Saints last Thursday when they got into the red-zone area compared to throwing the ball just three times. The result was three touchdowns and two field goals.

     

    Said Faulk: “When you’re in the [red zone] it’s just that much more important [to be able to run] because if you put eight, seven, nine guys in the box to stop the run…[and] you’re able to run the ball they have to be honest on the pass as well.”

    "I'll tell you what, they've got three good backs -- Spiller, Lynch and Fred Jackson,'' Wilfork said. "They're all tough runners, so we're going to have our hands full. They've been running the ball successfully and we have a big, big challenge ahead this week in trying to stop a three-headed monster."

    And one from Brady:

    It's great because if a team can't stop the line, you're just going to keep running it. That's the reality. You control the whole game if you're able to run the ball. Problems are when you can't run the ball and it's really one dimensional, and then passing situations, they're just two and out. You hate to hand off on first down [to get to] second and nine because then you aren't going to want to run the ball. We're really trying to [work against] our defense every day because they are a great run-stopping defense. So I think that really helps us. The different schemes that we use to try to create some holes that we can run through. Our backs are fine no matter what.

    Now what, Rusty?!? You know more than these guys? Gonna argue with your Man-crush? Good luck.
