Re: Running Game

Portis went from superhuman to merely good behind an offensive line that can be overpowered, and commits a lot of procedure penalties and takes itself out of good running situations consistently.

I think it's an important issue. Though the original post could have been better.

I'm watching the game right now on NFL Rewind, I really don't understand what Zorn is doing. I can understand if a good team stacking the box but this is the f'ing Lions. He is completely letting them dictate what he's doing. If they want to stack the box you don't abandon the run, you go with a two TE set all day long to get the f'ing running game going.

The only offensive success they have had all season has been in the passing game, including yesterday. They are bad up front, having Fred Davis in the game isn't going to change that.

If you can't run the ball you don't win. I refuse to believe we can't run the ball all of a sudden. We're the same god damn team we were last year. We can run the ball, the problem is when you call running plays. Zorn is shit. Watching this game makes me sick.

Zero rushing yards at halftime? Against the Lions?

Re: Running Game

we have definitely abandoned the running game, and the o line is terrible at run blocking, but i also feel that portis is losing a step.

It's not all of a sudden. We haven't done anything on the ground since the last Lions game.

You mean the first half last season when the play calling was working? Or do you mean the second half when we fell apart in every offensive facet? I think you are right that we are the same team as last year, just the wrong half. The playcalling has been awful but I have to think it's a lot more complicated than just deciding we are going to run better.

I totally hear you.

We're not going to win very many games if we can't get the running game cranked up. It's been embarrassing so far.
