It's been progressively declining over the last few games. Is it because our key oline players are out or what? We are not much of a threat offensively without that run game.

 

The summary of the last week is like this IMO.

 

-San Fran is a very tough D that is hard to run on, and we were playing a very physical game. Credit to their D.

 

-Patriots, we had a hard time stopping Brady, so we had to throw the ball a lot in a kind of shootout with him. 

 

-Miami has a decent D-line and they had us in a two score hole in the first half. We had to throw it a little bit in order to catch back up. Honestly, I thought our run game was ok in the second half. We established the run on the first drive of the second half, and if you add in Cams runs, we had over 100 yards. Also we were able to run the ball when we needed too, which is more important than just plain stats.

wouldn't surprise me if we draft OL, OL then get a WR in 3rd and CB in 4th

With the loaded backfield we got, we should have the most dominating run game in the league.  It's kind of disappointing that we don't, but we all know what the problem is.  Yet with all that said, we can run the ball effectiviely, we are just not dominating.

We need to draft two Tackles next season. Guard-wise, we're okay but Bell is crap and Gross is getting old. We need help in the trenches.

One has to wonder how 3rd string backs come in and are immediately effective. Offensive lines and blocking schemes help.

Our run game statically looks good bc our QB is forced to run....

If Cam misses any time.....we won't move the ball anywhere. RBs can't run and no other QB can evade the rush our line allows

I still dont like it when half of your rushing yards come from your QB even if its over 100. It should never be that bad, we can do better than that....well right now we cant but we should look too in the future.

Not a bad outing, especially considering we were behind in points and still stuck to our fundamentals.

 

It is more than double the amount of rushing yards we allowed. Works for me.

The O-line is a big issue. They generate little to no push. Tolbert, Williams, and Stew have defenders around their legs before they reach the line of scrimmage. We need to address this in free agency and the draft. We need road graders in a bad way. Literally every run play on 1st down leads to a 2nd& 7.

hartsock and scott have been bigger losses than we may have previously anticipated.
