Good write up.
Quizz and Snelling are not very good and this is a big part of our problem. They are slow as fuck. And combine that with our below average OL, and it's just a really bad formula. The only reason we have a good running play here and there is because defenses are just forced sometimes to play the pass against us and just can't stack the box or they'll get burnt bad by 1 on 1 mismatches vs. our receiving corps.
If we had shitty receivers, holy crap I can't imagine how few yards rushing we'd have. I thought Quizz would be something outstanding, but he simply isn't. That one play last year against Seattle was proof that he will NEVER break one open in the middle of the field and run away for a TD. Yes, it was an awesome run. Watching him run over Sherman was the highlight of the entire season for me. But he had open field and was EASILY run down. I mean it took zero effort for their defense to catch up to him and tackle him. He has no chance of running a kick return back or an open field breakaway TD.
And Snelling is the epitome of average. He can't cut. He's slow as hell. He can catch and run routes and he falls forward when he's tackled and that's about it.
