Thatís the exact reason it should be the focal point of our offense.

Everyone looks at our ypc and says run it more, but thats just not going to work. We arent a power run team. We cant enforce our will. Our big run plays come from timely play calling.

We need to be able to pass the ball.

You definitely want to try to control the tempo with running in a game like this. And force them to run as much as possible as well.

When you're outgunned on offense, obviously you aim for fewer possessions. Even if you gotta let Hunt get his.

Yes, running is now overrated. It shouldn't be though. The running game has become less important as the NFL implements new rules to increase scoring and drive the fantasy football craze. It's a pass happy league with rules that make DBs play with one hand tied behind their back. Running the ball is a necessary evil for clock management, but I don't think it's make or break anymore to have a dominating running game. Very few RBs play all three downs, more passes 1st and 2nd down, and a ton RBs are catching passes out of the backfield almost as much as they're rushing.

I never likes arena football and that's what the NFL is turning into.

Look at the Jets Game-Their we gave up monster pass yards and Run Yards. If we slow down the pass in that game and still give up big rush yards we probably keep it with in a score.

Its sad how far my expectations have dropped. Hoping to keep it with in a score-FMT

Agree. I used to love a good field position battle (and I'm being serious). I loved the strategy and style of a good defensive battle where flipping field position was a successful drive. We won't ever get back to that, Steelers vs Ravens (in the Bettis years) were the last of those types of games.
