Not yet. We've still been playing mostly the pass because we know that the teams we've played won't beat us running it down our throats.

Until we get into a real tight situation where we are as concerned with the run as we are the pass, I'll remain cautiously optimistic.

I'm also hoping Sharpton can sure up the run defense when/if he comes off the PUP list. Certainly can't be worse than Bradie James.

But it is clear, as I said in the game day thread, that NT and ILB are our biggest needs even over RT.

Yep. We made Chris Johnson come back to life. I wish we had a huge nose tackle because it seems like runningbacks are getting yards up the middle at will. Only good thing about our run defense is that we haven't given up a huge run to a RB that lead to a TD. Coming into the game we were ranked 5th in run defense in terms of yardage given up. We will still be in the top 10 after the week is over.
The run defense might come back and bite us if we are trailing in a game and have to rely on our defense stopping the runningbacks while they are running out the clock in the 4th.

I think this is what scares me most, the runs up the middle and when we get into a tight game, not being able to stop that middle run. James is a joke hopefully someone can over take him on the team, and our DTs get washed out easily....hope Wade has a plan for this

From what I have seen teams tend to have success running the ball against us when we are in nickel situations, or our DL sell out against the pass. Goal Line, and obvious run situations, our run D looks dominant.

Hoping Sharpton can come back soon.
