Arian Foster - bringing back memories

On Sunday I watched Kubiak's Texans run up points on the Colts, the way we always wished the Broncos could do during the Aughts.  Seeing Arian Foster stride tall and strong through gaping holes made me wistful for the days of Terrell Davis and the offensive line coached by Alex Gibbs and Rick Dennison.  

In contrast, I watched Knowshon Moreno dance around the line of scrimmage yesterday looking like an autistic child.  We've just traded for Laurence Maroney, who is noted for similar dancing at the line of scrimmage.  

My question is sincere:  Why didn't *everyone* want a running game of the kind that Shanahan and Alex Gibbs developed in the late '90s?  Backs looked like they were shot out of cannons.  Were there any drawbacks?  I know little about football Xs and Os, but I know good football momentum when I see it.  It seems like McDaniels must have an entirely different philosophy about running.  Why, oh why?  

At any rate, welcome to Laurence Maroney, who could easily have run for 1500 yards under Shanahan.
