No not really. It's all in how a defense plays you as an offense, what your offense is built upon (bread and butter) and truthfully how the games go.......obviously if you're a team that likes to sling it, teams will run more nickel and dime packages to discourage you from doing what u like to do...
For instance, In blowouts the winning team tends to throw less while the losing team kicks it up a few notches in passing attempts. Spread offenses bread and butter are the short passes which typically = more attempts run based offenses like ours tend to throw it a little less.
There are also other factors. Manning has an entire offense designed around him...he's got complete control to do whatever; audible run to pass or vice versa.
