it's a pass first league in the sense that the rules and structure favor the passing game. that doesn;t mean it wins you plkayoff games. balance wins you playoff games. look at the giants last year. they were probably the most blanced team (weren;t great at anything, but good at everything) and they won while teams like baltimore and san fran had obvious offensive weaknesses while new england, green bay and the siants had major defensive weaknesses.
balance wins championships
