The glaringly obvious

Just a brief stop in for now. Starting with... This article cracked me up. The Panthers struggle with the running game is fairly obvious. I say this because it's the same problem they had last year; they just don't run the ball anywhere near as much as they did in the '08 season. It's possible to post a one hundred yard game with just 15-16 carries, as some running backs have shown this year. But typically that number has to go up. A lot. The same is true of quarterbacks. A QB can throw for over 300 yards off of just 15-25 passes, but it's much more difficult than if he was throwing 35-45 times per game. I assumed this point was generally well understood among the sports writing community, but apparently not so. I'll be back later (hopefully), but till then, Have a great day everyone.
