Joique Bell was a solid RB in this league, THIS YEAR. If they had that much faith in Bell in 2012, why did he only get 82 attempts compared to Leshoure's 215? Stop it!
The fact is, Detroit ran the ball more than Dallas did last season. Numbers don't lie.
Regardless of what our defense did and didn't do, we didn't run the ball because we chose not to do so. There were plenty of situations where we had a lead, Green Bay, and STILL DIDN'T RUN THE BALL!
you know what the sad part is? yes that defense was awful, but you know what? we lost like 4 games by a combined 5 points and we went 8-8, i'm not saying Dallas is a Super Bowl team, but they get their **** together and split those games, 10-6 is playoffs and with a better defense and some balance on offense who knows
Ive been saying the same thing for 2 years.
All I'm saying is Scott Linehan aint the person to provide that balance because he never did in Detroit.
