Okay..only one game but......it was just as lame as ever. Without Cam it's like a one legged man in a ass kicking contest..doesn't work well. So what to do,we shouldn't depend on our QB with a repaired ankle to shoulder the load again. Here's options:
1. Sign the best available tackle we can find after cuts ( two lineman if possible). Our starting line is marginal at best. The backups are subpar to say the least.
2. Lean heavy on two TE sets and utilize a fullback in the running game.If that means keeping Barnidge plus the three TE's then so be it or if not find a legit fullback after cuts....can't run with the little push and non existent holes this oline provides.
3. Barner or Reeves....one is gone.... or Reeves to the practice squad.From what I have seen of Reeves in practice and now game time..he is the stouter runner with more power...Want to see him and Barner battle it out in the next three games....DLo can take one or two snaps and call it a day. If Stewart is fooling us all and actually plays and can stay healthy,then that would be HUGE. As far as Fozzy goes.....who knows.
Bottom line..Our WR and TE Corp is above average (yes, I think they are) and will excel with a dependable running game. I hope
D.G. And R.R are hatching a plan to do what needs to be done and not relying on Cam for our running game...but as a part of a real running game.

Reeves probably won't either.

Edit: Reaves has a shot though.

I'd be curious who the best available tackle is.

 

One site says it would be this guy

Is a Titan cast off better than Chandler or Bell?

The titans will probably rease Michael Roos. He is miles ahead of Bell at LT. Just has a big contract.

The running game will get better once our receivers prove themselves.  Until then, teams will stack the box.

Why we gotta be assholes to one another?


I think the run game will greatly improve with better OL play. I like our interior, I really think they just need more time together. A formidable game plan would be nice, perhaps we see an I.provement in game three.

Just don't talk poo about a RB if he is getting smacked by three different defenders in the backfield. Wtf barner sucks! Yeah just stop folks

I'm pretty sure Ron and Dave took notice of how poor the run-blocking was last night.... have a little faith.

The running game starts on the offensive line. We have a rookie, a guy coming off an ACL tear, a guy who has never played LT in the NFL and a guy who was only played on the OL for one year of his career.

It's going to take some time.
