In response to TripleOG's comment:
How would you qauntify that wozzy? Sounds like a cut and paste job. Give me more credit than that.
Why dont you write to BB and ask him why he doesnt run more in the postseason so we can all celebrate another title?
You guys always have a problem when fans question Bills GM skills but when Someone calls you out for questioning his coaching you guys backpedal..... smh
You cant have it both ways.
BB has made a concentrated effort to improve the running game both in personnel and persistence of play calling. This is obvious unless you're wearing blinders.
Winning Super Bowl rings isn't as easy as running or passing more. Points scored, points allowed and turnovers are the only stats that matter. Scoring points in the regular season is an indicator of nothing, as proven by my first post in this thread.
If a team can power run over an opponent, then the need to pass heavily becomes moot. Pass heavy teams only thrive in the modern age because of yellow flags.
This thread is ridiculous in that it is merely an attempt to be divisive and support an age old argument that's been thoroughly dismissed too many times to mention. Running is unimportant is this threads underlying message, that message is complete and utter horsesht.
Balance matters. A physically overpowering offense is better than a finesse only offense, this has the weight of historical fact behind it. This axe has already been ground into a fine sharpened edge and is now bludgeoning you.
So you reshashed the same ish we already know but didnt answer my question. Its all nice that BB got Blount but other than that, what measures were made to improve the run game? I dont see him picking up big mammoth lineman that can maul so the fact remains the strenght of this team is passing and thats why BB has pass oriented linemena who struggle to push D lineman in the playoffs and why Blount only carried a few times vs denver and hit the bench.
Again, I think most casual fans know running, and defense wins, but without the D, the running is futile and pointless at best. This team is STILL NOT built to run and Thats why its innefective in playoffs. So like I said, Talk to Bill about WHY he doesnt run more. We always have a balanced reg. season ratio by years end due to all the blowouts we have but when playoffs come, if the Run isnt working, BB is going Full Pass Mode....Do you understand WHY? I dont think you do. Rusty, Tex, and esp. you have a hard time with context, situations,etc. YOu think the same 60 year old rule of run first applies no matter what and thats silly
