I think we can, but we have to prove we can consistently throw the ball to create space out there.
I think the Rams were completely selling out to stop the run. Even though we were throwing successfully, they didn't back off because we weren't cashing in with touchdowns. We have to make teams pay for stacking the box.
Once we prove it's not a good idea to give us opportunities to throw, they will back off and we'll have more success running.
