This line from Mike Munchak about the run game yesterday at his press conference makes me want to scream:

For me, no matter how it went, I probably won’t evaluate it on one game. I’m not happy with where it started.

Hey Coach Munchak, this is not just one game. This is now 17 games with you as the head coach and your team is averaging 85 yards per game rushing. That is a terrible number, especially when you are paying a running back eleventy billion dollars to be a playmaker.

We have touted Mike Munchak for being different than Jeff Fisher, and in a lot of ways he is, but this assertion that this offensive line is going to be OK is Jeff Fisher stubborn nonsense. There is plenty of body of work at this point to know that these guys just aren't going to get it done, ever.

What can Munchak or anyone else do about it at this point? Nothing, but they better be taking a long, hard (TWSS) look at what is going to be available in free agency and the draft this offseason.

Don't worry, tomorrow we will move on from this one from the most part.
