The idea of being run centered was actually Garrett's

    Why do people keep saying this? Demarco averaged 5.2 yards per carry last year and the coaching staff still refused to run the ball. Zach Martin is good but he's not some god who has completely opened the running game up. Demarco's inability to stay on the field would be a better excuse, but it's really hard not to blame the coaching staff. I give Linehan a lot of credit.

    The 2012 line is a different story, but last year we could have been doing nearly the same thing as this year. We just didn't have a good enough play caller

    Jimmy never lost any credit, never. But Norv got a lot of credit for his part. You cant deny either one the credit due. Would Jimmy have gotten his credit w/o Norv doing what he did?

    correct me if Im wrong but didnt Garrett say that he wanted to run but didnt have the personnel? that he was trying to win so at times he was pushing Tony to more or less carry the team to wins?
    I dont remember where I saw or read this but I will try to remember

    That's what I thought too.

    He just continued to shoot himself in the foot by stopping it for no apparent reason.

    Head scratcher for sure..............

    This is exactly right. I'm not sure what anyone is trying to prove with this thread?

    yeah that Green Bay game was as damning as you will see. Murray was killing them the first half.

    seems Garrett wants to run, he knows he needs to run, but he is a slave to his love of the pass lol

    I believe 52% of Murrays runs last year went for 3 yards or less. This year it's 47%.

    If I got the right numbers the team is also averaging 5.42 yards on 1st down runs compared to 4.65 last year.

    Technically he was killing it in the 1st quarter. After than just below his season average.

    Just to clarify his 5.18 (I think) for the 2nd-4th quarter was still pretty good.... but that 11 y/a in the first quarter was just ridonculous.
