Do you think the Broncos could pick up a first down rushing the ball if it's 3rd and 3? 3rd and 2? 3rd and 1?
I don't, and there is ample evidence to prove that I'm right.
The key is keeping drives alive. Anybody can average 3.8 ypc if you only run the ball to keep the Defense honest. But can you run the ball when the Defense is expecting run? The current answer is "NO".
And your premise of getting to 4.0 ypc up from 3.86 ypc is some sort of magic number that will solve the Broncos short yardage situations?
