I do see you point. However, we have not had a legitimate passing game for several years. Yet, our run game was beastly the last two.
It all starts with the OLine's complete inability to run block.
I agree with both points made.. only thing I would add is that I haven't seen much different from '08 to this year as far as our offensive plays and playcalling goes..
matter of fact, with such inexperience, I think the playcalling has been that much more predictable since we tried to run the ball on every down the 1st few games..
this is a chicken or egg debate because this is a team sport and each aspect relies on both in order to find success..
I think teams knew we had to run, saw that all we were doing was running, and with the right side of our line gone from the past 2 years, that is another reason the run game faltered.. (so far)
and it isn't like we've started giving the defense more to think about as far as what play/formation we are going to run..
