The top 4 rushing teams in the NFL have a combined record of 15-21. I brought this up in the club level, but teams win now by being able to score a lot of points early and then milking the clock in the 2nd half. It's all about explosiveness as Gruden wisely puts it. "The days of the long 80 yard time consuming drives have become old school." They put too much pressure on an offense to execute at such a high level for 60 minutes in a league where the worst team has a shot on any given Sunday. I've noticed all year in the NFL that the teams who come out scoring points early are the ones who usually win games as they force their opponents into playing mistake free football.... in turn taking them out of their long prepared game plan and into playing catch up. Thus making your opponent more predictable, allowing your defense the ability to create big plays..... hence pushing games further out of reach. Not to mention an explosive offense with a lead can still put up points while maintaining a 2nd half ball-controlled lead because they have the fire power to take it to the house on any given high percentage play. The cat is already out of the bag regarding our need for playmakers, but it could always use more fuel for the fire. This conservative garbage will not cut it in this day and age. Time to take the training wheels off this offense and let Henne pedal a big boy bike. I can't wait to see how we address these needs in the offseason.
