    Vince always makes OLs look better, including the ones we have. I like the improvement from them, but they would still be below average with KFC behind them, IMO. RBs have a much easier time with delayed backside pursuit to worry about, at any level of football.

    So different..

    It wasn't until mcnair's 7th season in 2001 before he started seeing some of the things we are doing with young as a rookie. 4 Wr sets, empty backfield. The 2001 transformation was out of desperation. This by design.

    Just like the bulls with micheal jordan the main objective is to spread out and get the hell out of his way. The best block on that 39 yard run wasn't even necessary and they never did tackle vince. They send 2 linebackers on the blitz and he just runs inside of them, they had a DT spying him and he runs away from the guy like he wasn't there.

    And don't think that vince's threat as a runner isn't helping our running game. Teams are so focused on keeping him contained it has opened running lanes inside for henry.

    Our runningbacks have averaged almost double the yards rushing per game since vince became starter than what they did the first three games. Our RBs combined for just 59 yards per game in the first three but for the whole season have averaged 110.

    First - Bobby Douglas, Fran Tarkenton, Steve Young, Cunningham, ect, ect. There is a long line of athletic QBs in the NFL. Always seems to be 1 or 2 exceptional ones active.


    Second - Spying Young with a DT did not work early for the cows, and it did not work when it mattered. Keeping a SS at home might work, but would expose the D and the SS might be at a disadvantage in taking on Young, so why not use the DT? Althought a DT could probably take down Young a DT probably could not catch Young to begin with. I think the contained/disiplined rush is as effective as it gets, but it allows Young more pocked time.

    Can't rely on that. This team needs to make sure there's a good OL in front of VY at all times.

    Bobby Douglas, Fran Tarkenton, and Steve Young cannot be put in the same category as Cunningham, Vick, McNabb, or VY... Partly because of the already preconcieved opinions about the athletic black QB, and partly because while the were athletic, they were no where near the running threat of the latter.

    Were yards shorter in the 70s and 80s or am I missing something?
