It really wasn't that cut and dry. For example, Cyclone Taylor was a master at setting up the trailer on the play. Joe Malone is often described as the era's master at finding openings in the slot to receive passes.
I think the no forward pass rule makes us imagine the game was more end to end rush oriented than it actually was.
