Yeah, I remember the Pats coming back against the Falcons with that dominate running game. I'm not sure Brady even threw a pass in the second half of that game. A run game and defense has been a staple of winning in football for a very, very long time. It's only slightly less effective due to the hitting and passing rules that make defense harder to play. Building the rest of the team is important, but getting the right QB is THE MOST important decision. Unless you build the 2000 Ravens roster or even the 2015 Broncos. Then you can get by with average at QB. That is a rare feat and it falls apart very quickly in the salary cap era. So, find your QB. Protect your QB with a good OL. Get after the other QB with a good DL. Running game and good secondary. That's a path to sustained success. BTW, the Packers won versus Seattle due to some great throws by Rodgers to close out the game. It wasn't their run game or defense that won it for them at the end. The Packers are trying to win with Rodgers doing less though. The Chefs are all about Mahomes and he will carry that team or they lose. The Titans and 9ers are more about the run game and defense with good enough QB play. Either way can win it all for you.
