Somebody explain our Running Game to me
 
I noticed drew threw the ball 49 times today but we only ran the ball 24 times for 55 yards

why did we throw the ball so much? was it that we couldnt run? or was it that we didnt run?

or was it that the redskins secondary was so bad that it was better to throw that many times even tho they were the #1 ranked pass defense?

why arent we staying balanced anymore?

Because we were behind all day and the run was getting stuffed.

that was the only reason? we just had to play catch up against the redskins?

so maybe the real question is.......why the **** were we playing catch up to the redskins

They were pretty much stuffing the run on our guys. Bell did hardly anything, and Pierre didn't get many handoffs. No one averaged more than 3 YPC. Pierre was huge in the passing game off of screens, though. Plus, we were playing from behind for a lot of the game, so they had to pass more.

Because the defense didn't step up until the last couple of minutes of regulation and overtime.

Their d was all over our run, for the most part. There weren't a ton of holes.

Basically, our O-line got man-handled. It looked like our boys didn't have their legs after the short week.

They got their 2nd wind late however.

Haynesworth is a monster.

The Skins are stout against the run. I thought the playcalling was about right

Danno and Boutte are right. And our secondary looked really slow too.

Washington played a great game and luck was on our side, but it was tougher match up thanks to injuries and the short week away game.

No excuse, just fact.
