Wow, I hadn't looked at overall stats in a while.

I never would have guessed that we ranked higher than the 49ers, who all the experts claim have a great run game.

Awesome stuff. That rushing stat could pay dividends yet.

For when the going gets tough, Ivory get tougher.

Just think if we were a run first team, I like what we have now and it's good to know if all else fails we can pound that rock with success.

Ivory has really tore it up, I liked watching Ingram develop from week to week but ivory has been an absolute beast since he got more carries. Keep him trucking, he just finds yardage and decleats anybody in his way, plus he's got good speed aswell

Every time I look at our run stats, I can't help but to think about Caddieman and his argument earlier in the season about the Falcons run game being superior... what now?!

I'm surprised at the improvement once we got De La Puente and Strief returned and played a few games together.

Kreutz, Brown and Stinch were simply not very good.

To Caddie's credit, the Falcons were better early in the season, but a lot can change over 16 games.
