Even the most effective passing teams still run the balls a significant percentage of their offensive snaps. There's a reason for that. There are downs and distances where the smart move is to run the ball. You do that to get into better position to pass effectively, since passing more effectively than the other guy is what typically wins you the game.
^^^ That was what he posted few pages back. He is saying running game has almost no impact on winning games. Nothing about *being effective* in the running game.
