    Why cant we run the ball

    are they stacking the box?
    is it our O line?
    Are the RBs off this year?

    What is it, it just seems it cant get going!

    B/c they are calling running plays that don't play into either LT's or Greene's strengths....

    opponents are playing 8 men in the box consistently. Also, we aren't blocking well. Also, the RBs are just not "springing" big runs, whether they are slipping, tripping, running into their own guys, etc.

    But the big thing is - the big holes just haven't been there, which is mostly a combination of 8 men in the box and poor run blocking.

    The eyeball test doesn't lie -- There just is no room to run out there.

    Cause Greene can't stop fumbling

    The OL is having the worst game I've seen in a very long time. Losing Woody sucks and Mario Williams is taking advantage of it. But still, there's no excuse for this awful play.

    Our offensive line is overrated. We can't push people around.

    Because we cut Danny Woodhead.

    1. OL is way over-rated
    2. 8 man fronts.
    3. They want Sanchez to beat them--they are getting what they want and he is beating them with little help from his OL.
    4. Shoddy is horrible at using play action.
