    Well said. The NFL is a finesse league, pure and simple. They don't play smashmouth offense because conventional wisdom says it doesn't work. Each NFL offense runs a screen on first down, a draw on second, and a medium pass on third. That league can't even play physical defense anymore due to the rule changes. Within 20 years they'll be playing two-hand touch.

    Le'Ron would have had an easier time if Shula had used him properly.
    I may disagree with you, but I'm pretty sure you're not Hitler.
