    I don't know what Musgrave was thinking. He should have given AD the ball 20 more times so we could have gotten 44 more yards.

    Sure worked out well that he didn't ! That Musgrave is a sly old fox !

    Haven't exactly seen stellar offensive line play this season. I don't think I've ever seen AD hit in the backfield as much as he has this year. Backs don't gain yards by themselves consistently. We need the OL to step up.

    We need a passing game.

    AP, from what I have seen, gets better as the game goes along. The defense starts to slow down for him as he accelerates. The thing is, you have to GIVE HIM THE BALL for this to happen, not say "Nope, not working today!" and go pass happy.

    The ONLY way, in my opinion, that we would have stuck to the running ame is if AP had 1-2 20 yard runs on the first 3 carries. He didn't quit on us...our coaches gave up on him.

    The run/pass balance in the game was way too skewed in favor of the pass. AD needs to run the football at least 25 times per game in my opinion. To not run him 25 times in TWO WEEKS COMBINED seems completely senseless to me...

    I wish I never had the first pick in my fantasy draft.
