    Teams don't win BECAUSE they run the ball....that's a blatant myth.

    "This plot indicates that itís the winning that leads to the rushing, not the other way around."

    "Establishing the run"....just gets you FGs.

    In this league, you PASS to win. Run just for the sake of it, hope to break out some big runs if you get enough rush attempts in. You look at the Patriots, how have they sustained success all these years? Not by running, but by PASSING.
    Run just for the sake of it?? Now that is incorrect. You still need a running game to keep the defense honest. Also you do realize that the Pats were top 10 in rushing last season right?? Blount wasn't just there to pass protect. You still need to RUN the ball to dictate the game and control TOP.

    Since 2012 at least one Super Bowl team member had a top 7 rushing attack.

      I know some fans don't like it, but also throw in some runs during possessions even where the passing game is clicking perfectly. It gives the whole offense confidence, and is a back breaker to the opposing defense and coach that are concentrating on pass defense.

        It's simple, in order to win you need enough strengths to cause problems for the other teams and you need your "weaknesses" to be able to contribute enough to keep teams from taking advantage of them.

        They were a 9-7 team in the regular season because of a great passing game, inconsistent defense and crap running game. In the playoffs, the passing remained a strength but the defense became a strength and the running game was able to contribute enough to keep teams from gaining an advantage.

        All Hail The New York Giants!!

          No comparison. Bradshaw was a threat regardless of how many yards he had defences had to play him honest. Last year you saw a team that could not even run against a nickle formation and get 3 yards.
          Just remember Kevin Love makes more money then OBJ, and OBJ also dunks better.

              Didn't he get fined for that play? :O

              Seriously, NY has not had a consistent running game since they dumped him.

                All this brings up what I believe to be the difference maker for the NYG football, which is to be able to consistently claim reasonable chunks of land during a run play.

                Not 50 yards, or 20, or even 10; just 3-5 consistently. If they can do that than, these backs have the talent to rip a big run now and again, the pass game opens and yada yada.

                Obvious I know, but as you pointed out, the run game used to always be a solid foundation in NYG football and now it is not. From Joe Morris till Bradshaw this was true.
