    The lack of a running game is embarrassing!!!!!

    Our team has a total of 189 rushing yards after 4 games.

    Michael Vick has 228 rushing yards, Terrelle Pryor has 198 rushing yards and he's only played 3 games. I'm to embarrassed to list all of the runningbacks that have more rushing yards than our entire team.

    Seriously?.......!!!!!!!!!

    We rank 32nd in the NFL in running the ball, hard to be balanced and win games. Whats the answer? Start a bigger back Stacy or Cunningham? Two back sets? Run the ball outside? Run the ball three plays in a row? Use three TE sets?

    Fisher says he will fix it, lets see what he does.

    I believe the Colts did it in 2009 and were AFC champions, but then again, we're not the Colts.

    Can we just call the whole product embarrassing? Passing/rushing/defending/special teams...are there really any bright spots or silver linings with what we have see thus far?

    I've been saying since pre-season we need to see more Cunningham. I'd really like to se ehim featured for a quarter and see what happens. What's the worst that can happen? He can't possibly do any worse than what we've been doing.

    Why not give Pead the a game to see what he has? I believe he has the most overall upside of any of our runningbacks and has shown decent flashes being able to catch the ball and run a little between the tackles. We "wasted" a 2nd round pick on him, let him play the rest of the season and see what he has.

    The Ram with the longest rush from scrimmage this season? Sam Bradford with 23 yards. Not ideal...
