    The elephant in the room is that our esteemed OL can't overpower any average D that's committed to stopping the run. And MM keeps trying to doggedly establish the run early in the games. The Colts and Chargers shut us down and our really bad secondary gets us behind. If we're going to have any chance to win out, MM BETTER re-think his first and second series play scripts.

    This is why, at this point in the year, I'd of liked to see them come out PA heavy and take advantage of the defenses who are going to focus on the run. Burn them a few times to make them honest, then you can get the run game going. The WR group and Mariota have proved more than capable to catch some balls, especially when defenses stack the box and everyone is in man.

    ive said all season that this team was NOT A RUNNING TEAM. If you can't run the ball in your most important short yardage downs then YOU ARE NOT running team. This team is a pure spread offense that should be throwing the ball 80% of the time.

    Short passing game IS our running game with some deep throws sprinkled in to keep defenses honest.

    We wasted the entire first month of the season running plays out of the damned full house backfield. We were trying to win games 17-16. When we started to open up the offense we started winning some games, along with a drop in competition.

    As long as exotic smash mouth is here we ain't winning ****.

    If this team doesn't make the playoffs there is one reason for it, and it is that wasted first month of the season.

    Steelers are running all over the Colts, even though we couldn't.

    Big Ben and Antonio brown make a difference. Already let 2 TDs to brown, I think the safety is done trying to stop the run if brown is out there.

    You know I honestly stayed away from this thread because I thought after the lost people were going to anger me complaining about the QB or how bad the team is etc. It's actually quite refreshing to read everyone making sensible post instead of the constant trolling.

    Regardless of this loss, the team is trending up and as early as next year we may become the class of this division if we fix the defense, get a stud WR, and possibly add depth at TE (might have to prepare for life after Walker). I think that must be our focus going into next years draft and FA and I'm for one is excited about that. Just read on ESPN today Titans might end up with two top 10 picks now how awesome would that be all things considering? Trader John already shown he can make good use of picks so here's to hoping that continues!

    3rd in rushing as a team pretty much all season and Murray is 2nd in the NFL for RBs. I'd love for this to be a rushing team if it isn't now!
    That's the whole reason the passing game has been working because teams have to actually worry about the run.
