    RUNNING GAME?


    I guess most of you are AT the game.
    I expected more from the Running Game with the first string out there.
    Yuck!
    Hate the new uni's as well, oh well.

    At least I got excited about seeing Erasmus blow past Gallery.

    It was nice to see Eras blow him up like that, thats the quickness, power and punch i seen in his college highlights and workouts, i think he's gonna do real well this season.

    On the other hand the running game was garbage like you said, we have A LONG way to go there, I still believe Moore should be our starting running back, he's a beast. Something is wierd about him being the third string RB, the way he makes plays it makes me wonder if he has some kind of attitude issues.

    Raiders were the worst run D in the league last year, we should have dominated at the line.
    Hopefully they just need a few more games to gel.
    But did u notice, No penalty on the O line, that's what a disciplinarian coach does for ya

    It wasn't HORRRRRIBLE, but pretty bad. This is our first game though. Taylor needs to use our left side like Alexander did in Seattle.

    Its hard to judge that because the run blocking wasn't there for any of the RB's, Moore did the best job of breaking tackes and making moves, and man does he have exeleration once he catches that ball in the open field.

    Re: RUNNING GAME?

    i agree, memo did the best with the worst blocking...and why is he third behind taylor and fason now? fason goes down when the defense breaths on him. cant even break a tackle.

    im not liking childress pulling his eagle boys into the mix, they say on espn the WR we traded for mcmullin is going to be good, and i havent seen mcmullin do anything yet. mcmahon is terrible, worse than i remember. and this character issue with the vikings is going to be the big mistake. good guys finish last, and im affraid that the statement always rings true. your going to have mediocre guys playing football, with no attitude....osullivan is doing pretty good....getting sacked out of FG range!..woohoo, at least theyre not playing OT. and thats my thoughts for tonight. goodnight.

    Running game needs work. They aren't getting the yardage they could get.

    one more thought...no penaltys and no rushing yards (no memerable yards anyways) is nothing to be proud of. the left side was terrible. taylor needed a shovel to dig his way through the left side.

    It was okay Taylor showed some ability the O-line does need to gel more which they will and Moore is behind Fason because of that ever important factor everybody overlooks blocking. Until he can show the ability to block he won't get any field time.
