omg, so far 3 zoners believe they were a good running team because
they were a bad passing team
Lol, usually not having a good air attack means you are going to get stuffed in the run also. And they had to play from behind! According to your logic the Niners should have had the best rush in the last several years, because we certainly were among the worst in passing. Not sure where some of you are heading with this.
Besides, I am not looking for explanations why they are good at running...just that they have been. And we really haven't.
So far the only valid counter argument I have heard is that we have nabbed Rathman....but my argument is more that Cable had more of an influence then Rathman.
Rathman is a step in the right direction.
For the record I am not a fan of smash mouth teams...and I don't want to be a smash mouth team. I am simply stating, the only thing we really have so far is talk
about becoming one. And if we do become effective at it, even within our other limitations all we have to do is look across the bay to see what kind of results we can expect.
