The wishbone is was not viewed as a come from behind offense, but ask Nebraska ot Texas how many times OU came from way behind to beat them using it.
While it is true that the wishbone and running style offenses do not have as much likelihood for success in catch up mode, they do a couple of things much better, which include but are not limited to:
1. Control time of possession limiting the other team's touches.
2. Allow you to preserve a lead at the end of the game.
3. Limit turnovers. Pass INTs can be a back breaker.
4. Give your defense time to rest which helps the performance of your defense.
5. Running the ball puts your offensive linemen in attack mode and allows them to really lean on defenses and wear them down.
There are tradeoffs, of course, but there are also huge advantages which should not be overlooked.
