I wasn't talking averages. I'm not saying it's possible. I'm just trying to determine how dedicated to passing all the time people are. I fully believe that if Arians had a running back that was capable of 3.5 yards every carry, he would still have called long bombs most of the time, even with a lead and less than 2 minutes in the game.
