    Just 2 years after L.T. departed (stating that we are no longer committed to the run), the Bolt's are once again becoming a dominant rushing the ball.

    Literaly slapped my hand against the desk repeatedly at the thougth that you are only just now noticing this?? One of my biggest complaints about Norv is that Martyball survived martys departure. :/ Owell at least you had 4 years of blissfull ignorance of this information...

    Or are you infering that our stats rushing the ball vs the leauge makes us run heavy??

    to me.. Mathews should be getting the ball at least 18-24 times a game.. Tolbert should get a few just outside the redzone and possibly in the redzone (if he stops fumbling).. And I would really like to see Todman get the ball as well, he looked good in pre-season and Norv said for now on he is activating all 4 running backs a game..

    I agree with the earlier comments... when did we ever stop playing marty ball? Sometimes it almost seems like norv is better than marty at marty ball. I mean some of the sprole/matthews/ tolbert dives a couple plays in a row gaining no yards, I don't think marty could have played that conservative.

    So looks like we're going to be one and done in the playoffs again if he's following Marty.

    Saying that are running game is once again effective with pretty much the same line and a younger group of RB's.

    Well it happened last time... So wouldn't surprise me again. We get hyped up after alot of regular season wins and a few big retg season wins and then play like september in our playoff game and stayhome for the rest of january(not because we are the top seed either)

    The Gleam vs Norv's halftime "Insperiational speeches" that's what it's gonna come down to.

    One factor/person that was involved in both Marty's and Norv's playoff failures is currently on I.R this year.
