    Run Game - CJ2K/Ivory Thread

    Our 2 RBs can take us where we want to go. I thought I'd start a thread about our run game...which is awesome.

    FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- When he played for the Seattle Seahawks, Breno Giacomini blocked for arguably the best power back in the NFL, Marshawn Lynch. Now he's on the East Coast, opening holes for a Marshawn-esque runner in Chris Ivory.


    Giacomini
    Giacomini sees similarities.

    "(Ivory) hits the hole hard, he's not afraid to hit anybody," the New York Jets' right tackle said. "Marshawn is built a little bit different, but he runs angry, too. That's a good way to put it: They both run angry. It's awesome to see a running back like that."

    Going into Monday night's games, Ivory led the NFL in yards-after-contact (85), according to ESPN Stats & Information. Obviously, he gained most of it on his 71-yard touchdown run against the Oakland Raiders. In 2013, he finished 14th (384 yards), but he was fourth in YAC per rush (2.11), a better indication of his tackle-breaking ability.

    Giacomini considers himself one fortunate dude.

    "To go from team to team, from one running back to another, I got lucky, real lucky," he said. "It's pretty cool, man. With a guy like Chris, let's burn those last five minutes off the clock and go home."

    The team as presently constituted can do damage.  It waa the formula we use to get to two AFC CHamp games.   I am please with the improvement of the team but also troubled by the bone headed penalties  and some decisons.  If we learn form the mistales and clean up the penalties we could go far...

    Just know that the last 3 super bowl winners led the league in penalties. If you don't play aggressive football, you don't win.
