The O-line is leaking oil with key personnel out, which adversely affects the running game. Blink is not breaking through, which places additional pressure on the O-line and the QB. Defenses don't cover the run unless it's a serious threat.
Even with Obie Khan back, I don't have high hopes for the running attack against the Als next week. Something has to change to make the running game a viable threat again. I like the idea of bringing in Fred Reid to help out Charles Roberts and the running game. It will force Montreal to defend against the run and open up room for our "Weapons of Pass Destruction."
No matter who starts as QB next week at home against Montreal, I believe we must establish a solid running game to have any hope of success against a well-coached Alouette football team.
If anyone else has any thoughts on how to improve the Bombers running game, you might want to send these to coach Berry. He seems to have run out of ideas.
