It took the team a year and a half to get the running game going in the direction it has now taken. Our '10 roster had older veterans that were part of Holmgren/Mora's run. If you noticed the team last year, it was the Cowboys game that they started to get the running game going. We soon lost both of our young OL drafted last year and Gallery was on his last leg.
Last year's Redskins game, our guys wanted to have swagger but they were not yet ready. We picked up a younger MLB, our secondary gained experience and a full offseason helped as well.
The OL this year has settled in and we have continued to emphasize the run. The young QB has grown over the season and the offense is becoming multi-dimensional. The special teams have rebounded from an off year last year.
I think the inconsistent QB play from the past few years also affected the entire team because they could not back up their bark with a bite. They are young, fast and strong. Just not making as many mistakes which makes them more effective and confident.
EDIT: BTW, welcome back Riggo. Good luck against the Cowboys. See you in a week?
