Let me remove part of your statement to point out the flaw in your logic.

Skill at RB correlates with wins much more closely than skill on the OL does.

The Packers, 15 wins.
The Eagles, 8 wins.
James Starks is no LeSean McCoy. Not by a long shot. But he won more games.

Now I'm a big fan of balance. But not in the "We need a superstar RB to balance out our superstar QB" sense. We need young, reliable legs to chew up what's given to us so we can keep defenses honest. Take-it-to-the-house ability comes in a distant second when you've got an elite QB for that same purpose.
