In the past few days, I've heard a little of the "oh my god, Denver stopped our rushing game and made us pass! everyone else will do likewise! we're done for!" whether on the board, radio, even Reiss made a toned down version of the above statement. I'm not sure why this is such a news flash. In the past few years in the NFL, it seems to me that if any above average defense is hellbent on stopping the rushing attack of another team - no matter how great that team's rushing attack is - they will be able to stop the run, of course, at the expense of leaving themselves vulnerable to the pass. Which leads me to the question which has bothered me most since Sunday nites game - did our OL simply get dominated? Or did Denver simply decide "hey, we're shutting down the run at all costs" and stuff enough people in the box that even a great rushing attack (which we assume ours is) failed. If it's the former, that would be troublesome, but if it's the latter, then at some point in the near future Brady and his receivers are going to get on the same page and we're going to make teams pay dearly for playing run on us, which will in turn open up the run attack, which in turn will...well you get the point.
