This is it, isn't it? The ultimate test of Mike Shanahan's genius. How good is his offensive line scheme? Can he build a successful running game around a back that can't hit a hole unless it is directly in front of him? If Ron Dayne can gain 1000+ yards in Shanahan's system, Denver should just stop drafting or signing running backs altogether. I'd suggest a weekly radio contest where the 7th caller gets to be the starting tailback that week.

Denver's defense carried the team all season, and carried Peyton Manning right to a second Super Bowl ring in his worst season. Carolina's offense joins long list of postseason duds from the 500-point club.
