It begs the question if going forward, as the NFL distinctly has transformed more and more into a "passing league," if this will leave us in the dust as a modern day dinosaur.
If the entire league gears up to stop the pass and we continue to run, then we should be more and more effective at it because teams are less and less able to stop it. And if we keep having double digit win seasons, more and more teams will start following our example and then...

It's all cyclical. I don't see us being left in the dust any time soon.
