LOL. Point taken.
Seriously though, we need both. We need the steady gains that come with short, quick throws. We also need chunk plays to score points and build big momentum.
This is precisely why I hope they have stressed this week the following that I commented earlier:

If the defense has clamped down on us early, Kaep needs to bide his time, be patient and eventually, that play will open up and it will be like heaven just opened up with angels singing -- and THAT will be his moment -- he can let it fly and we can start to run away with it. Once they start to respect us deep, the running lanes for him will open up too.
He must exude patience. If he can do that, and gets a little help from some creativity from Roman, we will eventually get those chunk play moments in the game.
