Who do you propose they grab in free agency or off the practice squad? Jim Brown, Earl Campbell, Barry Sanders and Emmitt Smith are available, but they all seem to be a little past their primes. It would take someone too long to learn the playbook at this point anyway. Your conclusion about not making it far in the playoffs without a running game seems logical, but nothing is logical in the NFL these days. Offensively, it has become 7-on-7 or flag football.
