    More of Del Rio. Take square pegs and force them into round holes instead of building on strengths. So sad. If he is allowed to continue this we're 4-12

    Well, I appreciate him taking the initiative but change it back!

    No offense, but you're not watching the games. Lynch is currently 32nd out of 34th RBs with more than 30 carries in yards per rush before contact. That means he idn't getting much daylight before he either has to make a defender miss or break a tackle. I think some of it is on Lynch, but a lot is on the OL.

    I know going into last Sunday Lynch was 9th in the league in average yards after contact; and I personally thought he ran pretty decent last week - so I imagine it's a little bit higher now.

    With that said, I'd like to see 10-12 carries from Lynch, 10-20 from Richard and Washington combo.

    I wonder if Richard is a good enough route runner to run option routes, in the mold of Sproles.

    This may explain why Gabe Jackson has been playing like shit this season.

    I think it definitely explains the difference in qb protection without a doubt. You dont go from being dominant as an oline with only one departure (howard, and no he wasnt good at all), to this shit. We have all been asking why. Well, this is a very good reason why. Still dont understand why we tried to change what we did really well and what won games, instead of the huge glaring need for upgrades in the defense. Still makes absolutely no sense to me. It is opposite thinking. So think the obvious and the opposite happens..... its mesmerizing.
