Run-run-pass is one of the biggest myths out there. Go through the gamebooks. I think that most of the problems the Texans experienced last year, i.e., failure to convert 3rd downs - or even the situations leading up to third and more than 5, can be traced to poor execution rather than poor play calling. Look at the last five drives of Week 17 last year if you need an example. There was nothing conservative about the play calling - it was simply terrible execution. The second half of the Jets game was the only time I really had a problem last year (not going for the jugular). I don't think we're that different from most teams around the league in terms of quality of play calling. Compare Carolina play calling to Houston last year and you might see that execution is what's most important.
