    Run Game = Improved O-Line Play

    OK, I've always liked the way Redman has run and had high hopes for Dwyer.

    Early on our O-Line's run blocking was awful. But it seems that Willie Colon has adjusted to his new position and he's getting his feet back. Foster has stepped up just as I predicted he would in the preseason.

    I've bagged on Colon as much as anyone. I was on him to start the year as well while we struggled to run the ball. But he has been strong as a run blocker and decent as a pass protector. Factor in that he is taking a position that was formerly held by the human lowlight reel Chris Kemoeatu, and we have the biggest improvement on our OL.

    I said the same thing in the chat room. I like both Redman and Dwyer but think the O-Line gelling is the cause for the run game ramping up lately.

    The O-line gelling is giving the backs the crease they need to make yards, after that the backs are always falling forward for extra yards and they are running through a lot of tackles. The line is providing the opportunity and the backs are doing their job.

    Coincidence? The run game has looked good since I've Fallen and Someone Can't Get Up has been replace by Adams at RT.



    Narcissistic injury is the term used for any threat to a narcissist's outsized ego or self-esteem.

    No coincidence. Hopefully Adams stays healthy, and Gilbert Grape stays on the sideline.

    Adams has a way to go in his pass blocking, but definitely has been an asset to our running attack.

    I saw Adams get beat for at least 2 sacks, although I must admit that Justin Tuck and JPP are a handful.

    Yup. Pretty sure Dilbert would have also gotten beat by those two.

    Hate to admit it, but Gilbert is being outplayed by Adams.

    Still have faith in Gilbert though- he was good last season. Not a bad spot to be in if DeCastro & Gilbert are not certainties to step in next season..
