3. The inability of Felix Jones and our running game

I  thought this year would be different. I thought I saw a harder running, more determined Felix Jones during the pre-season than in years past. Was I wrong? If I was, I wasn’t the only one. Many “experts” thought this would be Jones’ breakout year. Instead, we got the same old Felix Jones.

Now many fans will point to the Washington Redskins game and his 115 rushing yards on 14 carries. He actually had about 150 yards before penalties cost him. That only sparks the question: Where was he in the other games?  Their answer will probably be the inexperience of the young offensive line. Then what was different in the Redskins game? It’s a catch 22.

I think the simple answer is that this is Felix Jones. Having three bad games and one great game is Felix Jones. Always flashing potential, but never living up to it. Unfortunately, he’s not alone in the dismal and forgettable running game. Both Tashard Choice and DeMarco Murray have underwhelmed in their performances. Anyone for giving a hungry Phillip Tanner a shot?
