Like many on this board, I have been an advocate of running the ball more as the offense has become, in my opinion very predicable. Worse yet, defenses have seemed to figure out how to stop Brady and co. Jam at the line and throw off the timing of their routes. I had a chance to look at the balance between the pass and run in previous years to see if this year is any different. Interestingly, the Pats essentially threw between 48% of the time (2004) and 56% (predictably 2007). This year they are over 60%. Is it just me, or does it seem like they have completely abandoned any commitment to the run now that Brady has his new toys (gronk and hernandez). It has already cost the Pats one game (buf) where they had a big lead and should have gone into clock killing mode. The offense is becoming stale and predictable, and given the state of the defense, that is not a good thing.
