Bob Oates of the LA Times has been covering the NFL for longer than most of the posters on this board have been alive. Oates apparently disagrees with you:

Counting them up, at least six NFL teams have started the season playing modern, pass-first football -- the Cincinnati Bengals with Carson Palmer, New England Patriots with Tom Brady, Pittsburgh Steelers with Ben Roethlisberger, Philadelphia Eagles with Donovan McNabb, Seattle Seahawks with Matt Hasselbeck, the Bears and the Indianapolis Colts with Peyton Manning -- sometimes.

It won't be much surprise if, several months hence, two of these six clubs are in the Super Bowl.

They must not have watched the Steelers play. Cowher is still running the ball too much on 1st and 2nd down, leaving Ben to convert tough 3rd downs to extend drives. Cowher returned to the same regular season offense after the 1st drive in the Super Bowl and it almost cost us the game.
