Changing "O" in NFL 58% passing
Just thought it was very interesting that the league avg. is now a 58%-42%, pass-run league now... the 50/50 around league just doesn't happen anymore and We should adjust to what the averages are before getting too upset with run/pass ratio's

As mentioned in this space over the past year, I'm not a big fan of the deferred kickoff at the beginning of the game.
ESPN Stats & Information just released a trend review of offenses, and it backs up what I always believed. The NFL continues to evolve through the pass. Since 2008, designed pass plays have risen from 57.2 percent of plays to 58 in 2009 to 59 in 2010. Designed running plays dropped from 42.8 to 42 to 41.
