BS.....
That is what was said until the Broncos Played the Titans in 14F weather and Manning threw 4 TDs, no INTs, and 397 yards.

@New England - 131 L
@Panthers 126 L
Cardinals 104 W
@Falcons - 103 W

Obviously if rushing was key to winning we would have beat the Patriots and Panthers.
Oak, those games were winable, real close games and in all fairness look at the games we lost by not running the ball and the difference in those games. When we don't have a balance is when we look bad!!

Brother... We have not had "balance" in one game this season.

In the new England game drew had 36 passing attempts and 26 rushing attempts. Close to his lowest pass attempts all season.

I understand they were close games... What I am saying is that there is no evidence that running more is THE key to anything.

Turnovers are the key to winning on the road. We suck at it.

On the road - 12 giveaways, 6 takeaways
Road losses- 10 giveaways, 1 takeaway

Eagles have excellent cover lbs. They snuff out screens better than most teams and are excellent against the run. That being said, their DBs are vulnerable

Yep

If you continue to give the other team the ball, you lose.

It's not rocket surgery.

To elaborate... The key to winning this game is giving Drew time and our receivers getting separation.
