I wouldn't expect this team to be in the top 5 or even 10 running the ball, but moving the ball on the ground is something this team would easily benefit from. Consistancy in the run game - even just 5 yard carries with an occasional break-out would satisfy most of us.

The overall problem I see though, is that simply plugging in a RB will not give instant success in most cases. The OL is a huge (and overlooked) part of the running attack. They will need their reps with Benson if they are looking to him for success. It will be interesting to see what happens with the runing game in the next preseason game.


of course this topic is a bit of[horse]- but I am glad to hear it from a player for a change, not just the fans. Let's run the ball Mike McCarthy !

I bet... and this would be weird. But doesn't it seem like sometimes A Rod can be too comfortable and actually overthrows when he has a good throwing lane. Anyone else see that happen a bit?

The semblence of a decent running game would be a real plus, to set up the passing game along with the affore mentioned. Also, the reverse is true, if teams are overplaying the passing game it would be nice to "gouge" them for 10, 20 or more yards rather than 3 or 6. Hopefully, Benson really helps. He is also suppose to be a good blocker, yes?
