Not when there's little time left and all running the ball would accomplish is running out the clock. When you have barely over 2:00 minutes to go you need big passing plays. Running the ball will get you nowhere.

There is no question that Kyle is too pass happy. He was in Houston also. When he left the playcalling became more balanced and they kept their defense off the field more.


Yeah, instead of Schaub passing the ball 583 times, he passed it 574 times. Not exactly a huge difference. The emergence of the running game with the Texans had more to do with Arian Foster coming into his own than a change in offensive coordinators. When Kyle Shanahan was the offensive coordinator of the Texans, Steve freaking Slaton was their #1 running back.
so with 2 minutes left in the game, you run NO running plays?

I think slipping in a draw every once in a while doesn't hurt, you know, keep the defense off guard. Hopefully catch them by surprise and get a 10 to 15 yd run out of it.

And if you get caught behind the line of scrimmage, you possibly lose yards, lose a down, and the clock keeps running.

I understand running it every-once in awhile, but if you're trying to make a come back anymore than once in a blue moon is a bad idea.

i hear ya. I'm not saying they should be running every play though. I do understand in a 2 min drill a team must pass.
