    You know what? Today is a good will day. I'm not going to go down this road again. My posts on the topic are there for anybody to read if you (or they) think my argument has changed a bit after the impressive win last night, feel free to dig them up if you really care too. From where I'm sitting, as I said earlier, nothing has changed. I think you continue to misunderstand the argument that was made, all along, but it's not important enough to disagree about all that much on a day where I'd rather just enjoy beating a talented Saints team.

    Again, I didn't misunderstand anything. So you still believe it's a passing league then?

    To me, the difference between the week 1 loss and the other games are the turnovers. When it's all on Romo, we don't play well. When he is not the main focal point of the offense, we do very well. Linehan gets a lot of credit here IMO. He's the one that's drawing up the game plans and he's the one who has made a change in the offense that seems to indicate a commitment to the run game. In past years, you would see the Offense abandon it (you can say it was Romo or you can say it was Garrett, doesn't matter). Now, based on the early performances, we are no longer doing this.

    It's paying off in the early going.

    I know that, but nobody denies the important s of the run and it is a passing league.
    We got so far away from the run because we weren't very good at it.
    The great failure was we couln't run it in the red zone,that killed us
    But if you want to feel good about always pointing out the lak of running ,OK your right.

    Gibbs ran an offense based on Air Coryell, just like Norv did with the Cowboys. Curious why you liken our current offense to Gibbs instead of Norv and Zampese. All three stressed the run as well as a vertical passing attack.

    I don't think Zampese or Norv stressed the extra blockers on pass patterns like Gibbs did. It's one of the things that Pat had mentioned in our conversation in that you can either 'go the Joe Gibbs route' and add extra blockers or you can 'do what they are doing today and using extra receivers.'
