    I love people who say "Pass the Ball" or "Run the Ball" ... how about Do What You're Good at?? Tom Brady gets it. he gets up to the line, sees the defense and then calls a run if the run is there. So much that the Patriots were 2nd in Rushing Attempts last year.

    THERE ARE NO TRUE "run the ball" teams in the manner of ball control teams in the 70s.

    Bradshaw would throw for like 190 in a typical game. We remember the SB explosions but those were not his typical regular season game.

    Kevin Kolb, Cam Newton, Josh Freeman, all have more 300 yard games than Bradshaw.

    It took Andrew Luck all of ONE SEASON to have more career 300 yard games than Bradshaw.

    You are on a roll, 100% correct.

    There's a lot of college teams lighting it up through the air too but then there's Alabama who still runs the football and plays tough defense. That old school strategy still works, not surprisingly.

    Very true but just look at the 49ers last season. #23rd in total passing yards, #4 in total rushing yards and #3 in total defense. It still works.
