You can't run the ball if you D allows 30 points a game. You just going to dig yourself a bigger whole. Secondly you can't run the ball if you have no offensive line to block for your so called running backs.

build a team around an offensive line and Defenstive line not a running back who isn't a running back.

Re: Why you must run the ball.

NEWS FLASH: We lost.

We couldn't stop them when we needed to and they did it by running the ball mostly.

3rd string QB comes in and marches them to 3 points. Where was the pressure. When you have a 3rd string QB in the game you bring the pressure and T-off on him.

This was a far inferior team we have played against all year. They should have won the game. You guys are saying it was closer but it was a team that hasn't been as good as the others. We are going to get spanked by other teams with D's and O's.
