Now, if I know your argument by now you'll pull up some "fantasy" football stats and say well they didn't run the ball more than the Texans and their percentage was lower. Now understand we had a top defense that was among the leaders in 3 and outs giving us the ball right back, played with leads regularly, and with the exception of San Fran the other teams were playing from behind. They have to throw the ball to get back in games and are running less plays because their offense isn't sustaining drives and the defense isn't getting them the ball back as quick. There is a much bigger world than the one you see my friend.

We could run the ball 100 times in every game this season, and would still be a "balanced" team.

That may sound silly..but it is kinda a "do as I say, not as I do" scenario. Our philosophy, or identity, is balance. We can pass the ball just as well as we can run the ball. But running the ball is usually a better option for us because we have the lead, and running it is both safer, and runs the clock out.

The reason we are a balanced team is not because we strictly adhere to having an equal amount of running and passing plays every game. We are balanced because we will either run it, or pass it, and do either one equally well. It all depends on what is more strategically viable in that game.

Just found that this has actually been debated ad nauseum over here:

The end.

Overall, we are balanced. But comparatively speaking we like to run the ball a lot.

Not really sure why folks can't admit that.

Oh wait, yeah I do...

1st half stats this year

Schaub: 43 pass attempts (This doesn't include any sacks which would be 2 more attempts)
Foster/Tate: 32 combined carries

I would say a 43 to 32 ratio doesn't indicate that we're a "running" team.

Everyone, please read this. Then go on to argue some other nonsense and have a wonderful day!
