I think part of the reason for this perception is that we seem to often call a running play when a pass is clearly called for. How many off tackle run plays have been called on 3rd and 8 in the Texans first three years? :brickwall
Maybe there are legit reasons for this, such as the inability to keep the rush off of Carr, nevertheless, a more thorough analysis of down and distance run vs. pass would shed a lot more light on this perception imo.
