No, our 1st team (note, this means D.Will) run game is not really firing on all cylinders. His career average is 5.1 yards a carry. He's 3.6 right now. This indicates some blocking problems, which is O-line.
Maybe they are just rusty... or maybe Davidson is holding his cards to the chest. IDK, but this isn't 1st team production that we need.
i think it is a combination of things, including what you have hit on. first of all, john fox doesnt care about preseason games. he isnt going to let davidson show his hand, like you said... we are waiting for the real season to begin to show the good stuff.
secondly, your probably right, the o-line probably is rusty, and they will inprove as the season goes on.
and last, we are missing steve smith. once smitty is back on the feild, he will draw 3 quarters of the secondary over to his side, presenting better match-ups for jarret or lafell, whoever is on the other side.
not to mention that we have played some of the best defenses in the league, so of course that is going to skew the averages a little bit. i totally expect that we will desroy the giants come week one.
