With Tebow's exile to NY, we are now the most old-school, throwback, smash-mouth team in the league.
As Buddy Boy said we played 6 games with a rookie 5th round pick. Our rushing numbers wouldn't have been anywhere close to that if Schaub was the QB for a full season. We'll still be top 5 in total rushes though. We're a more balanced team as compared to San Fran. I would say they exude old, school smash mouth football. Those guys will line up in a goalline jumbo package at their own 40 on 1st and 10 in any game situation. We like to jump out on teams early, pass heavy usually on the first drive, and then start to really pound teams and establish the run with a lead. The 49ers come out looking to pound the ball on you and impose their will.
