Throughout the whole game grant was running the ball to the left and wasn't being very productive. But when he ran to the right he seemed to pick up a decent gain.

Yes.. but I think there was a little one the job training happening yesterday, we were for the most part moving forward and controlling the ball.. so part of me thinks that they were trying to work on some things in live action.

Kinda like, we are going to keep running it until we get it right.. my opinion it was effective because we were able to make plays on third down. But I don't think they ever got it right.. but it was interesting they ran behind a guy that was hurting yesterday and away from Kearny.. an undersized DE.

It was the most maddening part of the game, Grant running to the left.

Drove me nuts. Left, Left, Left. Felt like I was watching a live action reenactment of Nascar.

Grant was looking so bad. I was wondering why we didn't try out Wynn. Heck, he knows our O.

Well a couple weeks ago, (I think it was the Lions) that running the right was going back wards (or it seem like that) and running to the left was working.

But we kept running right.

just hope after yesterday they can look at film and see it isn't working and find out running up the middle isn't the answer guys need to open holes even little ones i think grant is going to have a chance this week against the colts i feel they can win this game we have some good corners just need to stop the run better

Grant was missing some holes and cutbacks. He just doesn't seem to be in mid season form and by now he should be. Not to say he had all kinds of room to run, but you were kind of waiting for him to break a long run and he didn't do it which is disappointing.

I think Grant's problem is he goes down to easy. One hand gets laid on him and he goes down. He doesn't break any tackles

Early in the game he had a run where last year he probably breaks it for a long gainer.. it looked like he was hesitant to kick in the top end gear.. still don't think he is healthy, either that or he lacks confidence in the hammy yet.

Regardless.. sticking to the run and gaining positive yards for the most part allowed us to win the TOP 37 minutes to 23.. think that didn't play into the second half play and the defense playing well..

+23 on the offensive play war as well.. add to it that the pre-play movement looked sharper, more like last year.. keeping that defense reacting pre-snap.

Overall.. much better game plan from MM.

Oline still struggled with pad height and sealing off the corners though..

Finally someone pays some kind of attention.

When are you guys gonna stop riding Grant? I think he spoiled some of you with 200 yard games last season. Those are "rare' performances that your not going to get week to week. Now what we got against Seattle was perfect. We controlled the clock, and controlled the LOS.

I already mentioned this in another thread. Grant was running left for 1 to 3 yards per carry, then he ran right and picked up 7. I was going nuts watching all those runs to the left. Thirty-three carries and only 90 yards. But they won the damn game. They won the damn game. I didn't care how they did it, they just needed a W.

Cut-back lanes were there quite often, and I'd watch in horror as Grant simply lowered his head and plowed into the back of one of his own linemen. He's not at all what he was last season.

Clifton is a liability in the run game. He is not bending his knees and exploding into the defender.

As for Grant, would it be too much to ask of him to break a tackle every now and then? I can't remember him breaking one tackle yesterday. McCarthy even touched on this in his PC today.
