Too easy of an idea to fix the running game?

Just going off a thought here,(which can be dangerous)

but it seems Mularkey, in an attempt to get the run game going is putting us into alot of 2TE sets, 1 WR, and running Turner straight into the line, bunching things up, where there usually is a big wall that gets pushed back into Turner, who is not helping the matter by easing into it rather than crushing it, its pretty darn predictable

so why not run out of more 4 WR 5 WR sets, opens up the running lanes, they have to put 4-5 defenders on the WR's, and it gives you the option of throwing to alot of man situations, this allows everything to be spread out because........

have you ever noticed most of Turners brusing hits have been outside when he gets outside the tackles and when he gets past the line of scrimmage, never AT the line of scrimmage

Im not saying change our offensive scheme, just try it to maybe open the plays up and get him going

anybody else the reasoning behind this??

I just don't get Mularkey. Sometimes he mixes it up nicely, spreads the field and looks like an offensive genius. Others he looks as predictable as Greg Knapp.

Sad that we have to consider using Turner as our new TJ Duckett. He makes too much $$$$ to be that limited in production.

I realize its a business and a numbers game but egos and salaries have to be put aside.

At least TRY a game with Snelling starting.

Turner may make big money but he is not making the big gains. In my eyes that means a change is needed, even if for one game to prove or disprove the theory.

Any other RB that is plugged in, makes positive gains behind that same OL. Its not just the OL.

Ive always been stating this, Mularkey is Jekyl and Hyde

there are some games I see what he is doing and it makes me think he is a genius, he adjusts he schemes, he outsmarts the opposing teams coaches and players, then Mr. Hyde shows up and its like he keeps pressing the button hoping for a different result, AND!!!!! you can tell about halfway through the 2nd qrtr which one has shown up for the day

Turner's problem is that he is hesitating and tring to change direction and go outside. He is not that kind of runner. End.
