    Run Game Really Setting up the Pass

    1st Half

    Rushing:  31 yards, 0 TDs

    Passing:  165 yards, 3 TDs

    Where would Brady be without this juggernaut of a rushing attack?

    Got be honest Mighty, The whole Texans D bit on play action TD to Lloyd. Anyway Brady played that beautifully.

    33 passes to 19 runs through 35 points. 

    The Texans blitz, a lot, that is a perfect recipe for spreading them out and picking them apart where the pressure leaves holes. 

     Football is always situation/matchup specific. 

    @JH, people bite on PA based on the runner ... not on the tendency to run. 

    If you have Barry Sanders ... they will bite. If you have Marion Butts ... they might not.

    If you run them both 30 times, the results will be the same.

    Re: Run Game Really Setting up the Pass

    Running doesn't have to be productive to still be effective in setting up the pass. The Titans know that Ridley is a good back and that the Pats can run the ball and will run the ball, so even if they stuffed the run up to a certain point, play action can still be effective.

    In fact, the fact that they were effective in stopping the run could mean they're selling out to stop the run, which makes play-action even more effective.

    And vice versa, if a mediocre back like BJGE gets a few yards it doesn't mean he will help your passing game. He is likely getting them because the defense would rather give him some space than give Brady some space. 

    The point is the same ... the runner and his ability makes PA more or less effective, not the amount you run.

    Our run game all season is why they keep biting on those fake run plays for big yardage.
