that includes running your rb into 9 man fronts down after down
Injury has nothing to do with it. I'm talking about carries per game...so if he misses games, that doesn't skew it.
As for extending drives, that's a moot point also- we passed 514 times per season in 09/10. From '06-'08 we passed 488.7 times per season...therefore we actually passed the ball at a higher rate than under Turner/Hostler/Martz.
Is this really that difficult to figure out?
It wasn't how often he ran the ball, it's when and how he ran the ball. The when was when the other team expected it. The how, was the same f*cking way.
Most teams would prefer to run the ball more. When you win games you're going to run more often than pass, when you're losing, which we did quite often under Singletary you pass more since you're behind.
Running on first and 2nd down then having to throw on 3rd and long is not smart.
There's also the fact that Singletary routinely said how he wants to hit people in the mouth and run the ball...
