WHERE’S THE RUSHING YARDAGE?

Overall the featured backs of the AFCE didn’t turn in performances that will provide much team support if they continue like this.  I’ve read individual comments dismissing the number because “my team” faced the best run defense in the league but they can’t all be the best. Why the lack of concern?

Maybe scoring the “W” fixes everything, maybe the O-Lines need more time learning to work together, but most of these numbers aren’t what anyone was looking for this year. Tom Brady has new receivers; Ryan Tannehill has protection problems,  Geno Smith & EJ Manuel both need support as they grow into their positions. There isn’t a team in the division that isn’t counting on the running game for relief this year.

 

Its only week 2 and perhaps we see a different set of numbers this week. If not it’s going to be a long season for the QB’s and a short one for playoff hopes.
