    vs. Det - 172 yards on 44 carries. Pinner 29/125, Fason 6/28 (win)

    you can take whatever you want from these stats, but what i see is improvement. at the beginning of the year we were unpredictable. and you can see in the last 5 or 6 games we have really put up some great numbers. its a consistent trend that should continue vs the jets.

    of course there are plenty of other factors at work here like how good the opposing d is, personnel on the line etc, but i think its safe to say that the line has improved in run blocking.

    Even BRAD ran for a touchdown today.

    I think that was BJ's first rushing TD since the 1978 season.
    I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it!!

    Re: Great rushing attack comes from improved o-line

    good post modena

    with the exceptin of week one.. we get under 100 yards rushing, we lose.

    we need to stay committed to the run.. that clock control comes from the running game
    i m better than you, so just give up...

    The jets have a poor run defense too. Should make for an interesting matchup.
