Stop falling behind early and run the ball more. That pretty much covers it.

Yep, I think we've fallen behind by 2 scores early in all 3 games haven't we? Not sure about Chicago though.

I agree Ingram getting the ball earlier in the game and more often but...

The problem is defense. If you fall behind and you have to score 40 points a game then you aren't going to use Ingram very much.

It makes sense when you see Ingram on the field the D will play the run first. With PT and sproles you don't know what is going to happen run / pass?

I still think it is early to worry about our running game... if you fix the D everything will be dandy.

Therefore our defense could do a lot for our running game if we weren't behind in the first quarter so much....

I agree, but I would also add that it isn't just on the D. Our offense has been slow to start this year. Not necessarily going three and out on the first drive, but we haven't really gotten our offensive "rhythm" going until the second half this year.

I agree with papz and strato but if Brees is on fire as he was against the Texans then why run?
