    Re: Running the Ball is Key to Tom's Legacy

    Our running game - and especially Blount's ability to break big runs (though both Ridley and Vereen have the capability too, just not like Blount seems to) makes the D have to honor the run somewhat. If they do not you do like some here have said.. you make them pay and run it at them till they take you seriously.

    Our passing game - because of TB - is especially dangerous. If they load the box TB needs to take advantage. That does mean (1) the o line needs to play... ALL FIVE OF THEM... and (2) the receivers need to up their game and to make some tough catches.

     

    The two together, run and pass, can kill an opponent. There has been some comments about Harris' injury. This is a big deal. It means they have to honor the passing game that much more. In doing so they might not play the run as tough... BUT... Dont get carried away just yet... Denver plays agressively. THey could run blitz and let them keep going to TB if it is a pass... this WILL bring the o line, ESPECIALLY WENDELL AND CONNOLLY, to the breaking point. THey have to hold up. If they do this sort of aggressive tactic could backfire. 

    ALl in all it will come down to how well the O line blocks and whether we do in fact take advantage of the weaknesses in whatever package they have on the field. 

    It is a tough game to call. But I likes our chances.

    The pats should be able to put points up on the mediocre Denver defense, especially if Dobson is able to go.

    I already knew it.

    A happy pass offense will not win the SB.
