This may sound simple but all we have to do is establish the run and stick with it throughout the game.
Gable had 4 rushes for 31 yards against SSK. That's unacceptable.
Running the ball eats up time on the clock meaning the defense isn't out there as much and it also helps with play calling as the defense will have to prepare for both the pass and run. Right now, if I'm a DC, I'm gearing my defense for the pass against the pass.
Burris passed for 395 yards last week but he can't do that every week. I'll take 100+ yards on the ground and 300 pass yards and you'll see a huge difference in our games.
Look at SSK, Sheets rans for 140 yards and Willy was able to move the offense. The Cats defense had to prepare for both and they never knew what was coming, a run or pass.
Gable is a capable back but we have to let him run early and often in the game.
Are injuries really the issue? We are hurt at receiver but yet Burris threw for 395 yards. Defensively we have been bad all year, doesn't matter who was playing. We still need help on the d-line with pressure, which will vastly improve the pass defense but overall, running the ball will help immensley.
