Of all those 6 teams, I think you can honestly say that only the Vikings are what you would call a "run majority" team. If you stop the Vikings rushing attack (Adrian Peterson), you beat them every single time. The rest, if you somehow contain their rushing attacks, they still have the weapons to get into an "air attack" type thing.
    this!

    Oh and to the OP, arguably ryan elite?? there is no argument about that. my stomach hurts from laughing so much.

    Maybe they rank that high because their passing attack ices the game in the 3rd quarter.

    The Broncos went to the playoffs last year with a run only offense.

Advocates like to point to yards per pass vs yards per rush and state that the run game is simply a change of pace. I will admit that passing numbers are way up but becoming a pass first team is not a key to success.

    People point to pass first teams like the Broncos and Patriots and state this is how teams should be built. The counter argument is so fricken obvious! If you have an elite quarterback (Manning, Brady, Brees, Rodgers and arguably Ryan) then throw the ball as much as you want. However 28 other teams don't have this luxury and should not succumb to this trend.

    If passing is the end all be all then why are half of the playoff teams (Ravens, Texans, Redskins, Seahawks, Niners and Vikings) run first? Also if high yards per pass were that important than why are the top three passing teams (Saints, Lions, Cowboys) all sitting at home? My argument is that if you are not fortunate enough to have an elite quarterback than becoming a pass first team makes you a weak carbon copy of those that do and you will be exposed. Your best bet is to keep balance, minimize turnovers and maximize X's vs O's. Thoughts?
    Because they are all also very good defensively and are running out the clock at the end of the game instead of passing to come from behind? I think except for the Redskins those other teams are all top 10 defensively.

    Really? They can disagree all you want, making it into the playoffs isn't succeeding. Winning the SB IS.

    when was the last time they did that again, remind me.

    Even easier than that.....Look at the win/loss record in the superbowl of the teams with more rushing yards in the game....I think the Qb position is and will forever be overrated.

    The last 10 quarterbacks to win a Super Bowl

    Tom Brady
    Brad Johnson
    Tom Brady
    Tom Brady
    Ben Roethlisberger
    Peyton Manning
    Eli Manning
    Ben Roethlisberger
    Drew Brees
    Aaron Rodgers

    Now go back and look at who the running backs were on those teams....

    Brad Johnson is probably the only guy on that list that won't end up in the Hall of Fame. And even he had a very good season. He had the best touchdown-turnover ratio in the league and it ranks him for the 5th best season of all-time in that category.

    The NFL game as a whole will change based on what defenses are able to adapt to in general. Period.

    Niners are the only team in the NFL that is in the top 3 in offensive yards per rush, yards per pass and defensive yards per rush and yards per pass.
