Football has absolutely changed with the pass interference, defensive holding and protecting the QB/WR rules.
I honestly think Ground and Pound is nothing more then an example of the NY Media taking a "Rex Catch Phrase" and running with it.
The whole ground and pound thing is centered on what....running the ball and playing good defense, what team doesnt want to do that? This has been exacerbated by the fact that we cant throw it at all, that is the real problem.
We threw the ball 493 times this year and ran it 494 times (although I believe that includes scrambles. Those numbers dont indicate that we are running all that much, although Id guess the league average is not 50-50.
Overall we need to throw the ball more accurately and still have a good running game.
