Somebody explain our Running Game to me

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; We use the pass to open up our running game. If you ever notice we throw a lot on 1st and 10. Doing this also makes 2nd, 3rd more managable....

Re: Somebody explain our Running Game to me

Not a shocker... Albert Haynesworth and Cornelius Griffin are two stout tackles. We're not going to be able to run over everyone every week. I figured this game would be tough and come down to the wire... I'm glad we came out on top. Great game.

Yep, Danno nailed it. OL was man handled, also on the short yardage runs, I thought it was ridiculous to pull Evans giving the skins a open lane for penatration and catching the RB's from behind before reaching the line.

Re: Somebody explain our Running Game to me

The Skins were ready for us. Haynesworth is a monster in the middle, and they were bringing up their LBs on run blitzes to fill all the gaps. They also had good pursuit from the backside. It also looked to me like Bell was lining up too far in the backfield on those short yardage runs. By the time Drew handed the ball off, a defender was already on Bell. I would have preferred a QB sneak or a quick hitter with the FB on the plays where we had less than a yard to get the first. It may also be that our linemen were a bit sluggish coming off the short week after a big game and playing in poor conditions.

Skins were blowing through the hole vacated by the pulling guard. Just poor execution by the OL.

Haynesworth knows how to stop the run. He can be blocked in one lane and make the tackle in another. I credit him for our lack of running ability early on, I think he left later in the game and Payton went back to the run.

Re: Somebody explain our Running Game to me

The Redskins watched the tapes from the week before. During the Monday night game against New England, our offensive line was able to manhandle the defense of the Patriots, creating big holes at will. Washington studied this and they completely shut down New Orleans' running game. Plus, I think the Redskins are better than their record reflects. I told everybody in my office last week that the Saints better not take the Redskins lightly, they almost beat the Cowboys the week before. And as bad as I hate to say it, the Cowboys are pretty tough. I was glad to see them get stomped by the Giants. All of the dropped passes by the Saints on Sunday didn't help our cause either. We better show up with a better game in Atlanta.

Geaux Saints!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
