Default Will we rush more, or pass more? - part deux

The forecast in Cleveland calls for temperatures around 30°, with a chance of freezing showers. Perfect Bruce Arians football weather! I suspect he's focusing exclusively on passing packages in practice this week, because no one in their right mind would focus on the pass in weather like that. And besides, it worked so well the last time we were in Cleveland.

So please give your best guess as to what the game plan will be come Sunday. I should mention that you people ("the masses" or "the herd" as we pollsters like to call you) overwhelmingly predicted it right last week; we passed more than we ran, and this in a game that was over halfway through the previous Tuesday's practice.

Think long and hard about this poll question, and then tick "pass more".

truly he has a dizzying intellect.

bruce will do what defies conventional wisdom which says he will pass 80% because most will suspect that he will run when all laws of logic say running is the thing to do. of course he knows everyone knows he defies conventional wisdom so surely he will run. of course the opponents will be ready for this switcheroo, therfore he will pass.

since this is so easy for him to figure out, he will do the opposite of that and run. everyone knows this is what he will ultimately do and since last years failure was due to lack of player execution, he will give his brilliant gameplann another opportunity to showcase what a mastermind guru he really is.

I had no idea Bruce was a Sicilian. That explains everything! Never go against a Sicilian when death is on the line! ... or when your O-line is dead.

What's really sad is I think this is honestly, actually how Arians thinks
