If we don’t run…. We die. Period and Exclamation Point.

The OL can’t sustain blocks vs good DL’s on most days, they surely can’t do it vs great ones that have their ears penned back.

The WR’s, save Sneed vs bigger DB’s can’t get open quick enough to give the QB a chance.

And last but not least, HA is not a QB that you can expect to drop back to make quick reads and accurate throws 50 times a game vs even remotely good DB’s. He can rack up a few yards that way, but the errors will kill drives and/or turn the ball over too many times…… and if we make it to the red zone, the loss of the depth (of the field) concern for D, (along with everything speeding up in general) will not be pretty.

We can try the “drop back, look 1, look 2, run” stuff if we want without establishing the run with RB’s….. but the runs will be for his life, not the big ones we’ve seen vs the weak D’s (that had already been put on their heels a bit) in the past few weeks.
