Yes there was an article about the running game already, however one major thing it missed is why the running game is succeeding. Yes the run concepts are awesome and yes we may be copying the LA Rams, however the main reason is because the offensive line is playing in their natural positions. Unlike last year where Micheal Jordan was at center when he shouldn't have been you have a true center.

There is a reason why in the NFL coaches don't just try to plug an offensive linemen into a position they shouldn't be playing.

I'm not trying to rag on anyone but when you use a natural center at center, natural guards and tackles at their natural positions, they can just focus on playing and protecting, and yes dominating a defensive line.

This is the main point that was missed in the article
