Success has followed teams moving away from the pass to the run
nothing really new here. its an old proven method for success.
as we get into winter, having a running game that can be leaned on is a valuable commodity. the steelers have really ratcheted up their passing attempts in the past 2 weeks (vs. the more dominant opponents they faced the previous 2). it is apparent they follow this trend stated below.
i dont think anyone who has suggested they run more is saying 35 runs vs 19 passes, but moving away from the 75% pass/66% pass is a step in the right direction. 4-5 more runs a game can make a world of difference.
and its much easier to make a slight tweak to a good offensive coordinators philosophy midseason, than it is to revamp an entire special teams unit. just like a great defense, masked our offensive line woes last year, a great offense this year can mask the special teams stink and lack of troy.
making these adjustments and staying ahead of the trends falls squarely on the shoulders of the head coach and coordinators. anyone who thinks the coaches dont study these numbers and trends, and gameplan off of what they learn is kidding themselves.

What are you talking about the only thing that matters is execution.
