I Wish We Ran The Ball Like Minnesota

We never ran like that. They have two guys with power that'll also turn on the speed and burn you.

We have two guys with speed that get hurt instead of dishing out the pain. That'd be a piece of why we couldn't score in the red zone last season. RBs just not tough enough to get the job done.

"Minny's O-line is probably the best run blocking line in the league"

And they are still a .500 team. They will continue to be one until they get a decent QB that D's respect.

It doesn't take much...if our backs were actually good and not just riding a certain QB's coattails we would have been in a similar situation. It doesn't take an all world QB, just someone beter than Tavaris Jackson. Ben wasn't much more than a manager the year the Steelers won. Stopping the run and running the ball is the way you win championships.

Flashy passing games are for the highlight reels.

btrain...running the ball is overrated. Sure, you need to sometimes but with today's NFL, you can pass first which will open up the run.

Look at how the Pats, Cowboys and so forth sling it around?

Strange this is, look at Redman doing the same thing against the Rams. Petrino likes to spread the field but we need a QB that is accurate at ALL the throws, not just the short ones.

people talk about the linemen of ours, yet Norwood seems to have sucess.

its more then just linemen you have have a great o-line but if guys don't hit holes and and dont do what they have to it will be for not.

same thing with the qb, look at Bledsoe and Romo last year, Bledsoe was getting hammered , Romo comes in and the o line plays MUCH better, with any any change on the line.
