Running Backs, Sean Payton, and 2012
Very interesting stats!!

While Sean Payton is properly recognized for his significant contributions to the state of the modern NFL passing attack, he's often overlooked for re-imagining the role and implementation of running backs in today's NFL.

In fact, Payton has been somewhat of a pioneer in his implementation of running backs over the past six seasons. When the running game has worked under Payton, it has done so with spectacular efficiency.

Here are a few more interesting stats. When the Saints log 27 or more carries under Payton, the team is a blistering 43-4 (regular and post season). When the team rushes for 125 yards or more? A perfect 31-0.

Woooow!! That is very interesting info. I knew we had a good running attack but didn't realize it was that effective.

Very misleading stat, and I'm sure you all know why.

Those stats kind of parallel our high loss percentage when we pass for 400+.
We pass more when we are behind, and we run the ball more when we have a lead.
Most times the run/pass ratio is determined by the game situations and aren't pre-planned.
But I've noticed, even when it's zero-zero, we pass the ball more, and it's after that,
our adjustments get made.

You tend to do that when you have Drew Brees.

Not so much when you have Tony Romo
