DD had 150 yds for a 5.0 avg. But two of those runs accounted for 82 yards. That means he averaged a whooping 2.4 YPC on his other 28 runs. Included in his total were two runs for negative yardage, 5 for no gain at all, and 8 that went for all of 1 yard. While I realze that the long ones count too, that doesn't exactly paint a picture of a consistent or dominant run blocking line.

Care to counter that assertion?

Let me get this straight. You have a massive thread telling us it takes Carr 4 years to develop and to have patience but the linemen should be replaced under a different timetable? Too bad none of them are from Fresno St. Pitts and Wand are playing up to their draft position. I could argue Carr isn't.

Maybe Carr would have progressed a little better if he's not lying flat on his back or running for his life. Yeah Pitts and Wand are playing up to their draft position, so what, is that good enough. I didn't say bring in 5 new guys next year. But we do have problems here it'something that needs to be addressed. McKinney and Weigert are getting old and our pass protection sucks, we should be okay with that right. They have had a year now and hopefully they improve next year. Oh and Pitts and McKinney have been w. us from the start and Wand 2 years it's not like they're all rookies playing togther for the first time and Wiegert and Wade are veterans that have been brought in to help.

Wade's high ankle injury and rushing back to quickly hurt his performance. He gave up half of his sacks (2) in the first half at Denver and then had to be taken out due to pain and not being able to walk. Give the man some credit.
