yes, it is. the thing is that he is a 2nd-rounder...it's very seldom seen that a 1st-rounder can do sth right from start, now what do u expect from a 2nd-rounder.
The whole team looks better which helps and the Cle O has leaned heavily on Hillis not Colt
So what? colt's led many a drive with his arm only. Claussen has Stewart, Williams and Goodson and while not as productive as 08 and 09, does have a running game. Lets not pretend like hes playing with talent around him just to excuse his awful awful play. Hes got more than enough. Davidson 'leans on the run' more than Daboll does.
Cleveland has rushed more times than Carolina has, and Carolina's rush attack is averaging less per attempt and less yards per game than last year. The OL has been terrible in Carolina this year whereas Cleveland's has played much better.
