When it's firing on all cylinders, Fisherball is a great strategy. But as we've discussed before, the problem with it is its success is entirely dependent on a great run game AND a great defense. If either one of those breaks down you're most likely going to be in trouble. When you're averaging 3.0ypc, it's not the greatest strategy. When you don't have have a hard-nosed defense that can get off the field, it's not the greatest strategy. Basically, I think Fisherball can be an excellent strategy on an individual game basis. But I don't think it's a very good strategy for long-term success given the current dynamics of the league. If you insist on running Fisherball consistently, you still need to have an effective passing game in today's NFL. Because eventually your run game and/or defense are going to let you down. And there's the rub, if you have an effective passing game, why aren't you leaning on it more in the first place? Why are you playing Fisherball? Everyone from coaches to players to analysts to fans openly acknowledge that it's a passing league now. So if you think you have a highly efficient passing game, then by god use it.
