Doing some research

Yeah, I am a loser, nothing better to do as the game gets closer. So, I keep hearing the Saints will struggle against the Clowns running the ball because they only let up like 94 yard pg, or so. Here is what I found, and I am less than impressed.

Bears 88 yards 13th ranked rushing team and Forte only carried 16 times
Eagles 133 yards 3rd rushing attack
Bucks 115 yards 24th rush attack
Seattle 53 yards 30th
Pack 57 yards 21rst
PANTHERS 139 YARDS 9TH
lIONS 104 YARDS 27TH
Colts 83 yards 18th

I think we can run the ball, and we are 6th in the league, believe it or not. We need to run.

I heard they are going to try to run a ton of nickel and put pressure with their front four. So, I think you can counter that with an effective rushing game and that will force them out of nickel and open up the pass.

Anyway just throwing it out, waiting for the game

If it doesn't matter who wins or loses, then why do they keep score?

good research!

Our O-line should be able to handle their front 4, if they continue to play like last week.

Our backs should be able to get past the first wave of the defense early, then they stack the box and Drew has a field day...

One reason for the 94 ypg is that number of attempts. It works out at 4.0 yards a pop.

And the Saints are getting 4.7 yards a pop.

We CAN run on them - will we? I don't know. These coaches keep ME guessing
