Well, Cam wasn't our leading rusher, and if you combine Dwill and Stew's numbers, we actually had 1000 yards from our primary RB. Cam had fewer than half their carries. We run very few designed runs, which is good.
If not for the struggles on the OL and our receivers getting open, the disparity in favor the RBs would have been even greater.
But one of Cam's greatest strengths is his athleticism and ability to break a play open. Don't take that threat away, imo (which I don't think we intentionally did that much).
it's definitely not by design that Newton ran as much as he did.
We essentially became the Eagles with Randall Cunningham back when Buddy Ryan used to say "you just make two or three big plays a game and my defense will take care of the rest."
Not a winning formula, and not one I want to see again next season.
