"Establish the run early"?........Maybe Not


As some may have noticed, there were one or two posts over the season concerning our offensive play calling. So I thought that the following excerpt from ESPN Magazine might be of interest to some:

"From 2007-2012, the team that passed more efficiently in the first quarter won 61% of the time, versus 56% for the team that ran more efficiently. Add in the fact that teams that ran more in the fourth quarter won about 84% of the games and this much is clear: Advocates of 'establishing the run' have the cause and effect backward. Teams don't win because they establish the run early; they win because they establish the pass early and run the ball late to protect their lead."
