Default The Running Game...

Very few runs outside the tackles tonight where I believe we always do our best with Fast Willie and should be testing Mendenhall. Instead we get between the tackle run after run after run and wonder why Ben gets sacked with 3rd and long.

Let Ben throw the ball and run the ball outside the tackles more and you will get a much better effect in my book.

Right before we missed the 3rd and 1 where we ran it (when we tied it on the ugly FG), I told my wife "don't run it, don't run it,"

Bingo. That's where I'm at.

I am a huge supporter of BA, but the one and probably only thing I disagree with him on is him not using a fullback to lead the way for Parker and Mendy. I'm a big fan of utilizing a FB to get that extra punch.

I know most of you dont wanna hear this, but the offensive play call was horrible. The reason why we dont have a ground game is because we make so obvious when we are going to run! ahhhh this was a stressful game!

Thing is, we did a few times tonight... with no better result. Summers had a bad game.

But I really don't think a good FB will fix this. There is something else wrong. However, I keep being amazed that our team keeps pulling it out.

As I said before, I'd rather have horrible running and bad line play for a while, then have it all click in the end to win a game, then great line play and running, and lose the game in the end. Seen that too many times too.

So--Good fro this team! we are 1-0! That, I WILL TAKE!

Hard to run against a good run D that stacks the box with 8 or 9 guys. I'd be lying if I said I'm not a little worried about converting short yardage, though. Hopefully it works itself out.
