In an episode of Myth Busters which some of you may have caught, the team wanted to test whether a person could punch their way out of a coffin. For his part, Fitch laid on his back and punched up into a sensor. With only 3 inches of before contact, sensors measured Fitch’s punch at 1,450 pounds of force. In other words, it would be preferable to get hit in the face with a sledgehammer which would generate 1000 pounds of force.

From this, we can see that FB Fiametta and basketball player John Salley are confirmed as Vegans.

There are several big men on that list, including several power lifters, a couple of wrestlers, a MMA fighter, and Germany's strongest man Patrik Baboumian.

You don't need to convince me. I've seen many vegan athletes excel to high levels. As I've stated in the past, athletes like Arian can do very well, paying attention to some very basic principles. My post on Namath et al. was more for accuracy.

Exactly why I brought up the distinction.

Lots of people confuse the two or at least, think they're the same thing.

It's strange to take the two changes: change in offensive line and change in Arian's diet, along with the statistical evidence of the ENTIRE running attack struggling, and point to Arian's diet as the reason.

Our running game hasn't looked this bad since 2009 and you can't use the same recipes you used when you had road graders like Winston and Brisiel.
It looks like a combination of all these thiings, except for the concern about Caldwell, Jones, or Newton.

I have watched each play very closely (with the help of the endzone view from the coach tapes - through NFL Game Rewind), and there were more poor plays to the left side (plays that resulted in a loss of yardage or no to little gain).

Overall, all the guys had their share of subpar plays (all the O-linemen, and also Casey at FB.)
OD and Graham, on the other hand, performed quite well.
From what I can gather, Wade Smith probably allowed the most penetration (but he's been good on pass blocking.)
The combination of Caldwell and Jones might exceed that, but did not result in more "poor" plays.

On top of that, neither Foster nor Tate had exploded for a long one yet.

Last year, Foster had run of 43, 42, 30, 28, 27 and 22 (in the regular season)
This year, his longest was 22.

The same goes to Tate.

Another 20 yards would have brought Foster's average from 3.7 up to 3.9

Oh no, I was not trying to convince you, Doc.
You know more about these things than most of us.
I was using your post as complimentary (and vice versa).
