    34 passes 19 runs. I thought MM wanted to establish the run game?

    I never ever thought I'd say this, but I almost miss Mike Sherman.

    At the risk of stating the obvious, Mike McCarthy is full of it.

    Sherman had it easier establishing the run with the o-line we had. I miss that O-line but I belive by next year or 2 this line will be as good if we keep them together

    Heh. Maybe he did. Green and Morency look good if given a chance. We need more carries next week.

    Thumbs up to our D. They saved the game for us.

    You obviously didn't see the game again. It was something like 65% passing before the final drive.

    at the time I posted it was 34-19 pass/run. I give MM credit for running on that last drive.

    And whats with the name calling? Follow the rules or dont bother posting.

    Again, we threw it all over the place up until the final drive when we ran it down their throats.

    The Zone Blocking scheme is supposed to allow you to increase your carries every quarter and then in the 4th quarter you pretty much run to put it away. I thought the end of the game was a classic example of how you run this scheme. Very nice job on the last drive of putting the game away.

    Definetely. Wasn't it Jags who said you hit 1-3 yarders the first half which set up the long 20-30 yarders in the second? Maybe it was on Madden that I heard it. I think it was Jags tho.

    Yeah, we don't run an awful lot, but we should run it more than we do. Look at who we got at running backs. Green and morrency, Thats a good tandom. with green as the starter of course.

    when you are not getting large gains on a consistent basis, you can't keep calling runs. I know you won't get big gains every time you run the ball, but they run it three or four times and gain nothing, and than gain 15 on one. Then they go another 3 or 4 runs before they get another gain. And when they don't get a big gain, they get no gain, or lose yardage. They don't get 3 or 4 yars a pop. You have to pass it then, on 2 and long.

    Dont plan on a ton of running on thrusday because we have to face the Queens and the only good part of there team is their Run D. Does anyone know if they will be starting that Jackson at QB they put him in today and if they do I hope we can send some pressure and make he throw bad passes all day.

    It was Jags. Havel quotes him on it on the radio once in a while. Next week thought the running game is going to have problems against the Vikings.

    I'm starting to really like Morency. I got noyhing against Green but I'm almost ready to name Morency the starter and use Green as the hammer in the 2nd half and 3rd downs. This would also help keep him injury free

    i dont think he is ready to be a starter yet, maby next season.

    i dont agree with your last sentence, i dont see how makeing him not a starter would make him injury free.
