and he makes a good point.

with how easily we move the ball through the air and the chances we have had once down at the goal.....right now it isn't a great concern. If teams play the pass and we still can't run then it will be a problem.

"I don't think anybody in this organization wants us to rush for under 100 and throw for over 400 every week. Especially without points to back it up. We've got to do better on the ground. We've got to take pressure off Cam. We've got to let him hand the ball off 20-25 times a game and get 150 yards and a couple of scores out of that. That's what we're supposed to do. We're not doing that enough and it's hurting us."

um no gross, thats what we use to do. Pass protection means gross has to work harder and longer during a play. Boohoo. stfu and earn your paycheck.

I love the new coaching. If the o line wants to pussy foot and get pushed backwards, fug em, let them pass protect.

rivera is just telling the media what he has to......I dont believe for a second he is not worried about running game even though the way Cam has been passing it has to get better

Name the top teams in the NFL last year or projected this year......handing it off 20-25 times just isn't the way to win. Much more difficult to stop the pass than run.

Run game no doubt needs to step up....but I dont' think the above is the plan. Not in today's NFL.

Cam is a rookie....and that explains things coming to a hault more than anything in the redozne. The plays have been there. Just takes a little time....these early stalled drives aren't going to waste. They are what he will build and improve off of.

You know for once I don't believe this is the case. No doubt he wants a better run game, but I think what Rivera's seeing is what everyone should see...."I have a team that can put up 500 yards of offense. I should be able to get 3-4 touchdowns a game easily. I like my chances."

Goes back to the initial press conference.

Rivera said "balanced offense", but it was pointed out at that time that his idea of "balance" wasn't what most people thought. Rivera wanted a team that had the ability to attack via run or pass, whichever was working better.

So far, teams have been way more effective defending against our run game than our pass attack. I attribute a lot of that to O-Line issues, and the sad truth is that may not be fixed this season.

Give it time though. And till then, if we can continue to pass like we have, we'll still be in the games.
