    Did we win these games because we had more rushing attempts (double digit for both Gordon and Williams) or rush more because we were ahead at half time in all of these wins?

    Just an observation/question

    For the record I love our running game right now. OL know where they are going and have to be less reactive, both the ball carriers run hard and we keep our defense fresh... I don't care if we adopt a really run-heavy offense for now and then just challenge teams to stop us.

    This rushing tidbit is a very relevant fact, and one that may carry us deeper than some believe. Our D is looking confident. And if we can integrate a good run game each week, well, it's checking off the playoff style boxes. Of course we need a passing game, but you do not need a lot more than (or even that many) 200 yards of effective passing to compete, if those 2 other parts are clicking. Again, not there yet, not consistently as good, but we won our last SB with limited passing. But it was timely and kept opponents guessing.

    If TB can up his game just enough, and our WRs/TEs can do their part, I have to be honest....this thing is far from over.

    Not expecting more than we got. But a consistent game, week in week out, will at least give us a shot for a playoff game.

    And as I refer to when discussing draft picks vs playoffs, the experience our players would get by making the playoffs would be a value add going forward, and along with wise drafting, may be worth more than higher draft picks.

    (And I will repeat this one at various points.....tons of cap space and a nice draft package so far!!!)

    Not only do we have the talent to run but it seems the OL feeds off it. Both Belly and Flemming looked savage in the run game. Risner said in a post game presser after hammering Dallas this is the kind of game the OL feeds on.

    It is also punishing to the opposing defense specially in Denver.

    Imagine actually building an offense around this strength of the team.
    Double digit rushing attempts each from Javonte and Melvin means a minimum of twenty rushing attempts per game, but most likely thirty plus. That's at the run end range of balanced, and into run heavy territory like the Dallas and Chargers games. Denver has the personnel to do that from 11/12 personnel formations.

    Within a balanced/heavy rushing attack are other areas of balance. Seems like Denver uses a bit more zone stepped blocks than angle. Against the Chargers, QB was under a fair amount in the second half, but not sure how that breaks down on the season, so far.

    Being able to run effectively from 11 and 12 personnel formations opens up PAP which should be at least half the passing attempts IMO.

    This type of offense combined with solid D and good kicking game is good to have going into December/January.

    Every time Gordon touches the ball I'm worried it's going to end up on the turf. Williams should be getting 60-75% of the carries.

    KC's defense seems to be waking up so it couldn't happen at a better time.

    Offense needs some creativity as chemistry builds, surprise the other team's defense for a change.
