Re: Throw for show, run for dough. 

Fails to recognize the Pats had a good running game. Some of the analysts I read gave the running game edge to the Pats. They had a committee to run the ball and iirc had better running stats and a greater likelihood of running the ball on the ravens than having the ball run on them.  Reportedly, this was the best running offense the Pats had since their last SB win.

The failure of the receivers to connect on several 3rd and 2s did the pats offense in.  The short game in the WCO is a substitute and a companion to the running game. Too many drops on short yardage. The Pats offense never got going and it wasn't because the Pats didn't have a running game. It just didn't get untracked do to the short passing game faillings. It is part of the running game.
