The whole issue regarding the discontent of the passing game can be remedied by effective use of the rushing game. I looked at the CFL rushing leaders...Joe Smith, Charles Roberts, Jesse Lumsden, in this order...yet Lumsden has 30+ fewer carries than Smith and almost 40 fewer than Roberts???? Despite having a 7.3 average. I am not saying that I know more than Coach Taffe, but logic denotes a good running game freezes the defense long enough to get good reads on the defense, slows the pass rush, and gives the WR's more time to run good routes...which in my humble opinion makes the passing game more effective. When I played at Acadia in the late 90's we had a fantastic passing game, best in the country, yet we still had a bruising running game...obviously not the same level of football, but should not the same principles hold true?
Lumsden needs more carries and than the passing game will be a little more poised and effective...just my thoughts...any others?
