Everyone always claims you need to establish the run in order to set up the passing game. I say establish the pass to set up the run (like the Colts did). Last year our team was builit to be a run first team - -Our OL were good with the run -Our FB was a great blocking FB -Our starting TE Bruener was regarded as the top blocking TE -We only had 1 real pass catching option in Johnson This year our team has undergone a complete overhaul -We went with big OL rather than smaller zoneblocking OLs b/c they are better in pass situations (Spencer) -We replaced our blocking FB with a pass catching FB (Cook) -Our starting TE is better at receiving than blocking and is very fast -We signed Moulds and Walters as additional receiving threats -We brought in an ex-QB, QB guru in Kubiak -We brought in a great coach in Sherman for the OL So why is that we have made all the moves to create an amazing passing attack, yet we continue to hear everyone clamor about establishing the run first? This team isn't builit to run anymore. We could have gone with zone blocking linemen and kept Norris, but we didn't. Instead, we have what many would consider a potent receiving offense. Why not open up the game with 3 and 4 receiver sets? Why not establish the pass in order to setup the run? "Pass to establish the lead, run to preserve it"
