First five possesions:
1. run Â pass pass
2. run Â pass run
3. pass pass pass
4. run Â run Â pass
5. pass run Â pass Â 12:04 remaining 1st half
9 passes, 6 runs, 5 straight 3 and outs. From a logical standpoint you might say that since we passed so much more on these possesions that passing was not effective, not rushing. Gruden came out Â passing from the beginning. He made us one dimensional. Thats what the defense usually tries to do, isn't it?
This years motto is THROW THR ROCK!
Does 3 more passes than runs really prove your point? 9 passes versus 6 rushes is not a large disparity(it certainly isn't one dimensional), and from the first two possession it was a balanced attack. Maybe if they had at least netted a first down, by that point he'd have run the ball more. Second guess all you want, but neither 'run, run, pass' nor 'pass, run, pass' Â had any success.
