    It's hard for to me figure out the Pats and anything related to the running game.
    Why?


    1) All I see them do is pass, pass, pass, which they do VERY Good.
    -Yet at the same time, they rank in the top 10 in rushing YPG.

    I wanted to know, how is this?
    -Do the Pats really have a good running attack with a solid rotation between Maurney and Faulk, OR is this simply a by product of the good passing game opening up holes?
    -In other words if the Pats had to run to win, could they or would they be in trouble ala 2001 Rams?

    2) How is the Pats personnel suited to a running game?
    -Are their OL solid all around or would they be less effective being physical not finesse as the running v pass is?

    3) Why doesn't Bill have more runs?
    -Is anybody concerned that in the playoffs this might hurt?
    -Or it can lead to unneccsary QB sacks currently?
    -You don't want him going Martzze.

    Thanks.

    13-0....akuna matada....no worries pal. What the hell is wrong with you? or are you a Squeelers fan in disguise (aka...looser!)?

    No Patriots fan would ask such questions after just watching the complete dismantling and domination of one of the supposed "best" teams in the league. In response to ALL of your questions..."Who TF cares!"

    NO.
    I'm a Giants fan, who LOVES Bill and roots for Pats in the AFC.

    I don't follow them like I do the Giants and since I avoid ESPN for obvious reason I don't have as much insight.
    Honest question about the Pats running attack.

    I guess you stick with what got you there, which is Brady's arm and the receiving corps. I would imagine you'll see more of Maroney against the Jets and Miami.

    To me it is quite simple, play to your strengths, and many of the passes in the 2nd half were comparable to a running game.. there are no concerns as we are 13-0 and playing quite well.
