You can't hit the hole if there IS no hole.

Yeah he did seem a little too patient at times. But he improved his recieving!

We need to run that play more where LJ gets just beyond the los and turns and looks back for the short pass. That play and "The Dive" saved the Raiders game last year. We also need a shovel pass to LJ but I don't remember the Chiefs ever running a shovel pass.

the thing that bothered me is that he carried the ball only 15 times

Larry will be fine. He needs better blocking and he needs to get the ball more often. But, he can't get the ball too much more often when we're trying to play catch-up. hard to blame Larry or the coaches for his numbers this week.

Not enough carries.

He killed an important drive early in the game, too.

I'm hoping this is the bad game every team has during the year, and we got it out of our system early.

We can blame the coaches for his number of carries in the first half, before the Bengals went up by 14.

10 carries (I believe) is not enough.

Wait until next week in Denver, where we always suck.

Its all called being down 14 points and needing to score, thus no running plays. We have some genious people on the planet.

The funny part is that LJ had two of his biggest runs because he waited for his blocking to develop. Hitting the hole hard doesn't actually lead to a good gain if the hole is actually just some 320 pound guard's ass.

My favorite run of his was actually that catch and run down the sidelines late in the game. I love it when defenders try and tackle him at his thighs and they just bounce off like ping pong balls.

Uh...yeah, but not until late in the first half.

LJ should have gotten more than 10 carries in the first half while the game was still 3-3/10-3.

The Bengals didn't go up 17-3 until about 3 or 4 minutes remained in the first half.
Maybe later.

what pissed me off is when it was 3-0 3-3 we had three 3 and outs... 9 plays... 9 passes... three drives.

The bottom line is that without an "O" line this team will lose all season long I don't care how good our QB, RB and TE is.

We weren't in alot of running situations due to penalties and poor execution.

LJ had 150 total yards. Pretty solid in my book.

He had 8 carries in the first qtr alone. The first drive of the 2nd qtr we passed a lot, but it was effectively moving the ball.

The only drive that was questionable would be the one with 5 minutes left in the half where Green took two sacks (the last one was inexcusable for him to not throw it away).

After that we were down by 14. The loss of Green basically f*cked the gameplan from there on out.

Our 3rd drive was the one I think that you talked about. We threw on 1st down to get to about 2nd and 4 and then took 2 sacks in a row. Probably not the best playcalling, but not the worst either.

Probably not the best playcalling, but not the worst either.The third rive we got 2nd and 4, but ran the ball on 2nd down and LJ got stuffed for no gain. Pass play on 3rd and 4 and Green got sacked.

The 4th drive was the bad one. TE in the flat for no gain, sack, sack, Shitty punt. Hard to call it bad play-calling. The pass to Gonzo should be the equivalent of a run, but it got stuffed. After that we're in 2nd and 10 so you can't blame them for passing.

I would have run the ball on 2nd and 10, but that's just me.

Like I said yesterday, playcalling is the LEAST of our problems.
