Just heard Trent Dilfer talk about balance of play calling. He said in speaking with the most successful college and NFL coaches it has to be around 65% pass and 35% run to gain yards. Running is more about keeping people honest, but passing is what gains yards and will win games. Kind of a consensus that now even Belichek endorses. Some people may not like that, but it is the way to win games at this point and that slot WR's and TE's are the key. Things cycle however. Food for thought.
