We absolutely, positively, need to get a running game going and get it going NOW. If we don't, we're going to continue to look at 3rd downs (which the rate of conversion success we're running now is never going to last), and Ben is going to start running for his life again (which we started to see shades of in the Jet game).
Haley's passing offense needs a strong run game to survive, even if we don't run often.
Dont worry, Redman will soon show his suddeness and glide. That will solve everything....or the fans will tout Dwyer as the next Bettis.
