I agree that it's unlikely our coaches are bright enough to run the ball, but there's always that off chance. They have ran it on occassion. And when they do, we win.
If it's both teams trying to put on an air show, as I suspect it probably will be, we can look forward to an 18-15 type of game. Both defenses should keep the passing game in check if it's not supported by any kind of run game. And if we're trying to go pass-heavy with Joseph, god help us. Probably a 20-3 loss in that scenario.
