Resurrection of our mighty running game.....

Just thinking this out and it seems that with Stewart back (and if healthy),our running game suddenly looks very stout and may actually be one of the best in the league. Stew is great out of the backfield (as is Tolbert) for those slants and screens that we have suddenly found to be effective for us. Our running game is good now and will be even better this week. Name one team that has the combination of backs ( plus Cam) that can take over a game and beat down a defense. With other teams having to stack the box to try and take away the run game,Ginn and Smitty should find more one on one coverages then before. Let them pick the poison they choose to take.....get smashed by our backs, (with Cam also running over them)..... or let their corners cover our WR's and TE one on one which their safeties commit to the run support. Glad it is them and not us that has to make that choice.

I said in TC by reading all the reports and all the posts about our oline that they was going to be good in running, but struggle in the pass. Turned out to be true, although lately they're playing much better in the pass

I think we still need better OL play....to have a top notch rush attack.  Our runs are getting predictable IMO.  Why Williams is getting bottled up more in recent weeks and limited.  Opponents know where he can and can't have success in terms of running behind our OL.

I think its perfect timing. Cam has been using those screens lately and thats a strong point of JStews play. More weapons = more chances to score.
