    This dude simply does not stick with the run game at all. I know, CJ didn't look good at all today. The OLine was getting blown up as well. But the fact is, you simply HAVE to stick with the run game. Seriously...11 carries for CJ? In a game that was close until the final whistle? And one of those carries was a draw play during a rush-drive with no timeouts in the last 80 seconds? This guy clearly has no understanding of how an NFL running game works. You have to feed the RB, eventually he breaks one. Especially a guy like CJ. That's just how it goes.

    The Saints had the ball for 15 minutes longer then us....maybe because we simply gave up on running the ball? We've seen it multiple times this year... ATL, JAX, etc...some games when he just stops handing the ball off. With a receiving corps like ours, this will lead to short drives and punts more often then not.

    It seems like if CJ doesn't get 40 yards in his first 10 carries then Palmer just gives up on him and starts throwing it on every down.

    He's so unimaginative and even when it's clear the whole D is keying in on the run and ready to attack CJ at the snap, we still give it to him right up the middle. It's still very clear when we're running and its retarded if I can figure it out with 90% accuracy.

    This stupidity on top of an awful interior o-line turns into bad results.

    I just can't understand it anymore. Give up entirely on the run... then with 50 seconds left with zero timeouts, run the ball.

    Mind. No. Fathom.

    Cj was killing drives. At 9 rushes he had 20 yards. You do the math

    Yea just like the Atlanta game, CJ just randomly goes from 150 YPG to, 15 he must suck now.

    It takes good o-line play and good play calling to have a good run game. We have neither.

    9 rushes is 1/3 of a #1 RB workload.

    After 17 passes Drew Brees had 75 yards and no TD today. They didn't just stop throwing, did they?

    Im not saying he was effective. I am saying if he ISN'T being effective, why give him the ball at such a pivotal moment of the game.

    That's not the issue...the issue is that running the ball in that spot is an absolute waste of time. Unless he picks up 20+ yards, then all you're doing is burning valuable clock time.

    The run on the last drive made no sense, if you want CJ to get the ball throw a screen so Locker can just ground it if need be....
