Other than a few breakaway runs, the running game has been awful...
I believe we can improve this by
1) Better OL (goes without saying)
2) Run Frank Gore wide - Gore always runs between the tackles this why all of our oppenents run blitz right up the middle.... = Most of the time, runs inside are for minimal gain, if any
3) Moran Norris is useless, get a versatile fullback ala Tom Ratham ---
a) He is not a threat to run (defenses know that he wont get the ball - if he does, he wont beat you )
b) He is not a threat in the passing game (You can basically ignore him, he is not going to get the ball.
c) He is not even a threat in the screen pass
d) Not even a threat for the swing pass
Basically 2 back backfield is not going to scare anyone and is very predictable --- run up the middle
We need a fullback that can make some plays in bought the run and the pass...
You guys who have seen Tom Rathman or Roger Craig (when he was a full back) know what I'm talking about.
