I didn’t hear a lot of confidence from DOL that Turner would have any better of a game against the Charger as he has the past two games. Hopefully the 30 year old wall did not get the best of him.

Anyway you look at it, somehow Atlanta has got to get the running game going again to help out that defense………………..you cant keep the defense out there on the field too long.

Sometimes though, it can be the other team they play is real good at stuffing the run but just as Coach Smith said the other day, you got to be able to run the ball when you think that is the only option on that play at that particular time

Looks like the Giants are mopping the turf up with the Panthers …………………………….

Maybe if you put a pole dancer in the end zone Turner could run the ball better and maybe for more than his 2 yards.

Armchair QB’s how do you run the ball when the OL makes “NO” holes to run through?….its gotten to the point of reading committs from people who watch the runner and not the OL & runner……NO holes………try walking through a closed door….

Turner…. did you watch Andre Brown last night get to the outside WITH SPEED. Create a play when somethings not there. Show a good cutting ability or hit those hole with burst and make something happen!!!! That’s why people or down on Turner. Slow down with the critique of other peoples “committs”.

slow down slim — what do “get to the outside” and “WITH SPEED” have to do with Michael Turner? He’s hurting this team with his inability get past the line of scrimmage. I’d rather have Quizz in there full time. He may not be all that great between the tackles, but at least you can dump a screen off to him to help slow th pass rush a little. There’s just no threat with Turner in the backfield. His time has passed and he knows it.

This will be his last start if he starts, if he doesn’t get things rolling. If he doesn’t have it for this game being SanDiego and coming off a DUI,well he just doesn’t have it and aint going to find it, time to move on.
