the rushing component of our offense surprised me...it didn't seem like 226 yards and 6.5 ave. per carry, but we got it done without any fumbles...I'm glad Mancuso got his 50 and the TD, but unless you're like a Lamar Jackson I don't think it's a really good long term idea for your QB to be your leading rusher...
I was impressed by Jerry Garcia...he seemed like the quickest UR RB by far...I hope we'll see much more of him in the games ahead...
the quick hitters and jet sweeps seemed most effective against Howard, but the inside runs on which the back seemed to be waiting for a hole to open looked like slow motion...too often very little happened and Howard was able to stuff the play...it didn't seem clear to me that we were able to get a consistent inside push against Howard...
I'll gladly take the rushing yardage and TDs we got yesterday in every game, but would like to see them compiled in a well balanced way...
