Maybe because we had to start throwing more, and Ingram is a better pass protector (according to the coaches) so they used Mark more.

I'd like to see more of Ivory, he's damn sure a violent runner. A poor mans Steven Jackson.

We were playing the #1 run defense in the NFC also. Not sure either would have had a great day with more play time.

Re: Ivory should get the start

The two pick 6's changed everything. They WERE running the ball, committed to it, including Ivory, up until that point. The drive that led to the Jed Collins TD, featured Ivory on several carries. Then the wheels fell off. But my point is that they were featuring Ivory, just like some of you guys wanted, up until the moment when all heck broke loose.

Re: Ivory should get the start

Why were we running up the middle so much? Pitch outside to Ivory. Give him a little space.

This.

The Niners have one of the best, if not the best, D-lines in the league. Our O-line is getting mangled and pushed back into Drew's business, opening no running lanes, yet the logic Carmichael chooses is, "Let's run it straight at them. Repeatedly."

Those up-the-middle runs largely haven't been successful for us against much worse defenses, so what confuses me is not only does he try it against these guys, once is has proven to not work, he goes back to it again and expects different results.

Really?!? Pete, what were you thinking? SMH.

Ivory needs more carries. 'nuff said.

The definition of insanity.
