This is the win that showcased Sing's philosophy. Win a game with runs up the middle, short and safe passes, keep the score low and close, and win with defense.

He probably is as thrilled with the way the team won as for the win itself.

Sing feels his philosophy was vindicated and will stay with this style of offense come hell or high water now.

The cost is that this team's offensive development will be retarded for as long as Sing is here.

BTW, don't blame Raye. How many variations of runs up the middle and short and swing passes are there? I thought he pretty much used all of his options there. Even when they went to the spread, they ran the same plays!
