    I'm not seeing the comparison. Murray is a power back and McCoy is one of the shiftiest players in the NFL...

    It boggles the mind why the only play that we ran that gave us an identity is gone. I can only guess that it has something to do with the zone blocking scheme we now utilize.

    We need to dust that play off as it was effective since no team respects our running game and it worked as a reverse play action pass oddly enough!

    The playbook seems a little dumbed down so far this year for whatever reason.

    I normally don't agree with you, but in my opinion you are 100% correct.

    Bottom line is we are not a good running team and will probably not be this year. So to follow the traditional run to set up pass is a bad idea. We need to module our game plan like we did in 2007. Scrap the short West Coast style stuff and open up the playbook and pass. Once we can do that starting our run game with the draw should be effective. Then we can move into a more balanced run/pass traditional offense. Our biggest issue is we try to be balanced early with a traditional run game and we get 2 yrds per carry then we abandon it. Using the draw/delay after passing it a few times is a great way to get the running game going.
