    The running game as a central weapon is dead in the NFL, or at least cryogenically frozen.
    The top 3 passing teams in the league: a combined 29-5.
    The top 3 rushing teams in the league: a combined 16-20.
    My question: Do they have computers to gather this information in Pittsburgh (team, fans, media) or are they still getting all their correspondence by Pony Express? When does everyone in that city wake up to realize the problem is not the lack of the running game, it's the overemphasis on trying to establish it?

    I dunno if the best running teams have ever been a sure bet for a SB

    Simon, you apparently were in the process of generating this thread at the same time as I was getting one started. If Headbutt wants to come in and nuke Limas Sweed, I'm totally cool with that.

    Funny, I actually thought about starting this with O'Donnell, probably something obscure like "Neil O'Donnell's hood ornament" which nobody else on this site would get.

    It is more of a passing league than ever, but that doesn't mean balance isn't best. The Steelers, for example, don't have the overwhelming passing game that the Saints have.

    And trying to pound away at the 31st-ranked run defense in the league was not a bad idea. The problem was execution. Well, that and a horrible secondary.

    If you don't have a top QB, you lose. That's the way it is and the way it will be in the new NFL.
