    I am starting this thread in the hopes that it will mean something to someone, somewhere. For the love of Pete, can we please get Mathews a full load worth of carries this week. I don't care what the score board says, we have to use the run liberally this week. It is our only chance of winning. If Mathews gets 12 carries again, and P Rivs has to throw the ball 37+ times AGAIN, we are assuredly headed for another L.

    These L's will continue until we pull our head out of our ASHHH and use the run like a real championship caliber team does.

    Case in point, last year the Steelers averaged 38+ throws a game, and less than 20 some rush attempts, they did not make the playoffs. This year with Rapelotsburger out for the first few games, they ran the ball 30+ times and rang up a 4 -1 record in doing so. They are also, uncoincidentally, widely considered the best team in the league.

    Please sign this petition and comment if you agree.

    I think 20-25 is likely if we're not behind by 14pts by the end of the 1st quarter.

    As long as you are at it, what about a petition for the Chargers defense to step up and sack Bradee at least 8-10 times tomorrow?

    No, that wouldn't do us good seeing as Tom Brady would have all day to throw.

    Only way he nears that many carries is if the Chargers get a 10pt lead in the 4th qtr... and Tolbert is hurt.

    With all the Wide Receiver injuries I'm not so sure about this.
