Left anonymously in the mailbag: In Gregg Easterbrook's most recent Page 2 column, he said, "None of the top four rushing teams in the NFL this season (Tennessee, N.Y. Jets, Carolina and Miami) has a winning record. By contrast, 11 of the top 12 passing teams have winning records." Is Jimmy Raye catching the hint?

Mike Sando: The 49ers rank 24th in rushing yards and 23rd in passing yards. They aren't good at either. But I get your point. They've been striving to be a good running team. And running is important, provided a team can pass effectively. The 49ers will have to improve at both. Why not overhaul their offensive philosophy right now? Cue the video.
