    I'm floored that anyone can watch this team and conclude that we can run the ball just fine.

    we run to many sweeps and misdirection plays and not enough power plays, plain and simple.

    Are running backs lack power and frankly vision. To many run plays are stopped at line or for loss where just a little vision and side step gets into the hole for a gain.
    The above post is not subject to penalty under the TOS I declare the Hayden Fox defense. " It is impossible for the staff to know my context therefore I cannot be penalized"

    Why does the Running Game Suck?

    Watching Bush today with the lions, seeing him hit the holes and not dancing in the backfield makes me wanna punch the Dolphins FO in the nose so hard.....

    Should've ponied up the dollars and resigned Reggie.

    Good point. But, clearly you're missing and I don't know how? All those running lanes his Oline is creating. Also, lets not forget statistically the Packers have one of the worst running defenses in the league.

    True he's got a great oline to run behind, he's also not dancing in the backfield like he was when he was here. Still also has fumbling issues. Still think he's better than what the Phins have on the roster right now though.

    Worst decision of the offseason letting Bush go.
    He is everything that Miller is not.

    Miller only has 1000 yards to go to reach Pouncey's drug induced prediction

    Coming into the season, I thought we had two G- VG run blockers in Pouncey and Clabo with Cog being pretty good, about half as good as before the ZBS. This should have been enough for at least a decent run game. Then, Clabo turns out to be a disaster, and there were two. Hard to be consistent in running just middle left. Then we lose Cog, down to one, followed by Pouncey. And then there were none. No one else on the OL is any good at run blocking, the TE's are worse, and we have no FB.

    The RB's are not causing many missed tackles, miss spots, and have been slow in hitting the line. They need holes, which have been very few and far between.

    I can't blame Sherman here with what he has to work with, and Philbin wants to pass more than we are doing.
