Lang and Sitton shouldn't be criticizing pubicly, but they should be saying it. It's really difficult to understand how a team can have an 18 point lead and only run the ball 6 times. Throwing so often gives the trailing team all kinds of advantages and makes it extremely difficult for the offensive linemen. Clock management alone dictates that a team with an 18 point lead should run the ball more than 6 times in a half. Add the success that the Colts DEs were having in the second half and it's like the coaching staff was trying to help the Colts.

Point is Lang and Sitton have to block and make running easier.It would be good if they can run the ball.I like the passion but keep it in house and block better.
IF the Packers ran the ball,then some folks would bitch they are being conservative,if they pass some bitch they are not killing clock,or whatever.but, they have to throw ect to get the timing down.The passing game wont get there if they dont throw.YES, a successful running game makes the passing game easier but the passing game has to come around with or without a running game.Also i wonder if Evan D-S taking over at Center would help the running game.Saturday the multi time probowler is up there in age,smaller then Scott Wells was.Maybe that would help.We keep hearing hes learning the system and a few calls of his were out ranked by Sitton on the line,so maybe hes just not with the playbook yet ( but as a vet,he should be one would fiqure) or maybe he lost a step and Even D-S May be an answer at Center.Just food for thought!
