he is averaging over 5 yards per carry since the bye, but in the last four games he is averaging 11 carries.

If he needs to act like Antonio Brown and call everyone out up infront office....Im ok with it.

Because, look what happened to Steelers after....and Matt Forte (Jets) after he called out obvious play calling mis management.

DAN QUINNS message on walls - " When you run, good things happen " We running away from run game for sure!!!

Not when his offensive line is blocking like defensive linemen are coated in butter.

1 yard mate? Especially, you call yourself the elite back in league ....do you really believe its hard for Eliott, Ingram, Gordon, Gurley to name few to be denied at short yardage situations?

None of them get anything with defensive linemen hit them in the backfield.

I thought Coleman was suppose to reincarnate as Patrick Dimarco.

I was sooo freakin livid when they let Dimarco walk away...he was absolute beast & cornerstone in our running game.

DAN QUINN needs to be slapped!!!

See last year's version of Gurley if you want an answer to that.  A back can't do it all if they aren't getting help in those situations.

Who put him in that situation? Then why make bold predictions before the season and games?

Time to back it up....walk the talk or just stay mum.

Letting Dimarco go - was one the biggest crimes Dan Quinn has made especially knowing Sark was raw in play calling and he needed core pieces to execute the play calling.

I have no idea what any of this has to do with what I said, so I'll leave you to it.

Hard for a running back to punish a defense when he's only getting 11 carries.

Well - I hate to keep doing this  - but comparing to first 8 games last year

2016 - Total rushes = 116 (high 23 Den, Low 11 GB/TB)  Average Rushes = 14.5 per game    Total Yards = 543 (high 152 NO, low 20 TB)   Yards per carry = 4.7  TD = 3

2017 - Total rushes = 114 (high 21 Det, Low 9 Mia)   Average Rushes = 14.3 per game   Total Yards = 512 (high 106 Det, low 37 Chi)   Yards per carry = 4.5   TD = 5

 

Now - look at the receiving for Freeman compared to last year

2016 - 34 targets, 26 rec, (76.5%) 192 yards, 7.4 yds per rec.   2 TD

2017 - 24 targets 19 receptions  ( 79.2%) 137 yards   7.2 yds per rec  0 TD 

 

Seems like we aren't using our RBs in the receiving game as much.   I think that's partly because of the line - they've had to help with the blocking more - and partly because of game plan - which may have a lot to do with the line as well.

His rush attempts are almost the same, yards are pretty close and he has more TD this year in the run game - but his targets, receptions and TD are all way down from last year in the pass game.

I was really just talking about the Carolina game.

Got it.   You are correct too - but I wonder how different it might have been if Carolina hadn't taken the lead before the half and then expanded it quickly in the 3rd.   Carolina had 2 drives nearly 6 minutes long each in the 3rd quarter and increased their lead.    That took away our run game somewhat.   8 of his carries came in the first half.

Those final minute interceptions before half always seem to doom us.

If those two scores took away the run then shame on the playcalling.  Being down 7 or even 10 points shouldn't move you away from the run.  You gotta keep those attempts coming to wear on that defensive line. 

Miami was down 17-0 and kept right on pounding away.  6 runs to 9 passes on their first drive of the 3rd quarter.  And none of the runs were long.  It was 3 yards here, 2 yards there.  They just kept chipping away.  By the 4th quarter Ajayi broke off back-to-back 18 yard runs when they had to have it.

You play a defense like Carolina and end the game with 18 rushes to 38 passes then you probably played right into their hands.

That is the right thing to do in most cases - but it takes a very disciplined ability to stick to your game plan when it's not working.   Coming off 3 losses and playing a Division Rival  who just "once again" wiped out a lead and played ball control with a score at the end of each - I can see exactly how it could happen.

Don’t blame Freeman Sanders couldn’t run behind this line.

The thing is - he's running as well this year as last year.    Very little down from last year in numbers and up in touchdowns through 8 games.

The line is actually built for the run.    I'm surprised our QB is functional at all on the other hand.    Last year, he was amazing - and the line was ok - but he was still hit A LOT.    This year though, the line has been much worse and he's getting slaughtered back there.

Freeman ....you words

I want to punish everyone when I run (who got punished - Fans? ) 

I wont be denied (we cant get 1 yard in pivotal moments of game)

Everygame we approach will be like superbowl match.  (Technically, we lost 5 Superbowls this year...how many more Lombardis you wanna drop? )

 

 

Really? You have the nerve to call out Freeman? Man, you must don't have anything else constructive to do with your time. Just sitting there like:
