I'd like to think that with defenses having to key on Manning we'd be a little more successful running the ball. And if we were how unstoppable our already good offense would be. The passing game would be that much more effective. A minor concern of mine going in to the playoffs. May come a time we need the running game to come through for us and I'm not 100% sure it's up to the task.
Excellent point so true. The importance of a running game in the playoffs is magnified. The one player that helped us the most to win two rings was not John Elway it was Terrell Davis.
