Lot's of yards yes but they were #2 in attempts and one of the top rushing team that wasn't getting 500 plus yards out of the QB position. Do you ever say anything that is remotely correct?

In fact going back ten years, the overwhelming majority of super bowl teams had offenses that favored their passing game over their running game and usually by a wide margin. The few teams that had better running games all had elite defenses (Pittsburgh, Giants in '07).

So you're wrong. The running game has actually proven to be completely unnecessary and shown no help in getting to and winning playoff games ahead of a good passing game and a good defense.

I hate to say this , as much as I love Shanny ... But You could use us during the Plummer years as a check on the side for what you are saying Kaylore.

We always was like the best running team in the game and would get beat by teams that would get us in track meets. Aka the colts in the playoffs.

Giants were ranked dead last in rushing. Won the Super Bowl. Passing wins. Game over

What did they do besides give him a starting gig? What a joke the Teblowers are. They gave him a job he didn't deserve because they didn't have a starting QB on the roster.
