    While true, comparing past goal line tendencies to today's is kinda irrelevant. We all know the league has evolved into a pass friendly game. What matters, is not whether other teams are doing it (like Denver or New England), but whether it gives your particular personnel the best chance of success.

    I can't get the article to pull up. Not sure what it says but I didn't like that they weren't showing run on all three downs. pass or run off it, there wasn't one run package

    I was in the stands. That series of downs was absolutely disgusting.

    Passing on 1st and goal from the 1 isn't an issue for me if you see a match up that you like or you are trying to surprise the defense.

    The issue from the Washington game is passing on multiple downs from that position despite having timeouts available to use if necessary.
