This offense utilizes the short passing game to control the clock.
The reason for more pass attempts is because they try to establish a running game In the first half which doesn't happen so we fall behide and have to pass more in the second half. In today's nfl you have to pass to setup the run. We fall to these terrible teams because we try to run the ball and we get no where punt and give the other team pretty good field position.
