the running game would be better if the arm of the qb could stretch the defense out to protect the deep pass. Forte will retire in the next 3 years because he is getting abused. The 3 yard passes are just getting stupid,. What is the point in throwing 3 yards when you can pull it down and run it yourself orton? The best pass of the night was the conection to forte 1 yard behind the line of scrimmage. He then had yards after the catch for a first down. This is the story of the offense. Short passes that look good because they get yard after the catch. These passes are padding the un paddable stats of kyle orton. He throws short and still gets it picked?!?? What is going on

How Turd Turner did not bother utilizing Forte until the very end of the game is a direct indictment of our terrible coaching staff.

it took turner 3 quarters to figure out that running between the tackles wasn't working - the 2 big runs happened because forte ran outside

now if turner could only figure out that passing on 1st down should be the exception not the rule ......
