.....

would have been nice if it showed up.......Williamsm and Stewart had no holes and almost every run was blown up in the backfield. No excuse for it sucking to that degree.......even with teams focused on it.

Our OL is suppose to be a run blocking OL.....if they don't run block then they are a below average NFL line.

What Rivera thought was the biggest strength coming in IMO looks to be one of the biggest weaknesses. Lots of stretches today where it would have been nice to grind out some yards instead of everything being put on Cam's shoulders.

Cam was a one man wrecking crew.

I thought Stewart should have had more more playing time today. He was showing more than Williams was. Not a knock on DeAngelo, but it's just some players are better against different teams.

History has shown our run game takes a few weeks to get going.

Looked to me that AZ. was blitzing heavy up the middle all day and blitzing gaps instead of overloading one side. That's typically a blitz designed to stop the run.Like a few have already mentioned they dared Cam to beat them and he almost did.

You can't run versus an eight man front so instead of playing Fox ball, trying to run up the middle and getting stuffed, over and over again we aired the ball out. It worked very well and if you take away the three busted plays we would have won the game.

Carolina isn't the only team not using a FB.....and they get holes (with OLs not built to run block). I think it is a much bigger issue than that.

the threat of the run would have take pressure off cam and perhaps have allowed for more production? O-line was horseshit in the run game, period

Except we did have a Fullback. His name was Richie Brockel, and, much to KillerKat's chagrin, he played very well today. Felton could end up cut at this point and I wouldn't be suprised.

What then? We basically have the same OL as '09. What is different other than a) abandoning the run WAY too early or B) not utilizing a FB?

Nothing. What other explinations are there?

Double Trouble has run over plenty of 8 man fronts before.......I think the OL just isn't what it was.

2 yrs older. Nothing stays the same.

Fox use to abandon a functioning run game.....Rivera abandon one that flat out wasn't doing anything.

How well? Did you see our rushing attack today? FIFTY-SIX yards. Man, we rushed JUST over a half football field in an hour long game!!!!!!
