I most certainly do. It was the "look at Denver" that I had a problem with there. That's all.

This is a myth that for some reason continues to spread. Running the ball in and of itself does not in any way guarantee any more rest for your defense than passing the ball does. Regardless of systems/coaches/QBs over the last year, our defense has been out there between 64-66 plays per game.
