Default Re: at it again

Any team could employ the philosophy of running the ball 60% of the time...why don't they?

Because they can't do it and win. Ultimately, controlling the ball on offense and playing good defense is what wins championships. I think the Pats know that...when they took Corey Dillon, a supposed malcontent in Cincy, what happened?

Do you think Marvin Lewis, a past DC, has a different strategy in mind? If he, or Belichick, or about 20 other NFL coaches could run the ball 60-70% of the time, they would. It's a copycat league. Look how many teams run the 3-4 now.
