NE won all those SB with RB by committee. Some argue they had Brady, and keep saying a dominating run first offense is the only formular for a SB winning team.

Sorry, you are WRONG.

There is more than one way to skin a cat.
These are the past SB winner without Brady at QB.

KC
Philly
Den
Sea
Bal

All relied on dominating defense and complemented it with balance attack. ( except KC, it is all air ). An vision of the offense Flo is building.

None of it rely on dominating ground game as their #1 factor as their SB winning formular. Even Bal, their #1 RB in SB only had 59 yds on the ground.

You stuck in a narrow vision of what you think its the only way to run an offense, and failed to enter into 21 century.

Of course there isn't the same emphasis placed on finding an 'elite' RB these days, but it's still vital to take the pressure off the QB with a solid running game (helped by the OLine), especially when you have a second year QB in your team. Hopefully we can do that this year, as our roster is looking seriously exciting right now.

With an improved OL coming season, Gaskin and Ahmed are enough to keep the defense honest. I say the OL has more to do with running game than RB.

I hope you're right my friend - I've been high on Gaskin this offseason, I like him as a solid option in both the rushing and passing game. Re your point on the OL/RB, I'd generally agree in the case of a good running game that it's more on the OL, but it's the RB that can then turn that good running game into a great one.

The two best RB prospects from the fast few years have been Elliot and Barkley... and they HAVE been bell cow backs... when they've been healthy... on iffy teams.

They are fun to watch, but you don't really win this way.

I agree mostly. You still need to be able to run the ball in short yardage situations.

Disagree.
Good OL can make an average RB look good.
Bad OL can make an all pro RB look average.

Don't know how long have been watching football. Look up teams with good OL, they inserted different RB in and out, and all RB were productive.

I remember Jerome Bettis winning one with the Steelers.
