I like the physicality of the ground and pound. Unfortunately, this aspect of the game has become less important these days due to the recent changes Goodell has made. QBs have more time to throw and receivers have more space to catch ... Thus making the passing game far more efficient than running the ball ... At least when compared to 5 years ago.
I think we need to continue to improve on D, and also in the passing game ... Because teams like the Patriots can score will, we need to be able answer through the air as well.
I don't buy into the idea of keeping the other team off the field via running the ball ... Brady scores nearly every series ... If your D cannot stop a high powered air attack, running the ball to keep the opposing teams offense on the sideline is a flawed approach that is reactive in nature. I want our offense to scare other teams. Defenses are simply less effective against air attacks now.. To think otherwise is bury your head in the sand.
