Our Running Game is of Concern We need to get the running game going by design and not by chance. The Patriots need to prove that they can run the ball well against teams that have a good run defense. I still don't think we are calling the best plays to showcase Maroney's skills. It seems to me that skill by the running backs, luck and bad Run Defense teams has at time made our running games look better than it is. A combination of bad play calling and our O line struggling to consistently open up hole can cost us when it really counts. While the Passing game is improving week by week a lot to do with Brady I would imagine. The running game remains a blindfolded toss of a dart in the air. With the talent we have in Running Backs opposing defenses should be in a constant state of fear Should we die by the run or Pass. Instead although I don't think they overlook our running game it probably is an after though.
