A good running game can still be the catalyst of a good offense, but if you don't have a capable QB to keep things balanced, that's where the problems come.
And to base a statement off of the Vikings with their backup QB is pretty short sighted.
This. There are plenty of teams that are what you could call "ground & pound" that are successful. Ravens, 9ers, Seahawks, etc. The difference is that those teams have good QB play (usually) and so they just say they run the ball well. It's the ones like us who have some jagoff behind center that call themselves "ground & pound".
