Our Rushing D last night

Okay so we gave up 139yds on the ground last night, which isn't great.  Jay brought up a good point that the majority of the yards were on single long runs that padded the stats.  I figured I would check it out so here are the stats:

Allen Patrick: 8 carries for 36yds with a longest run of 29yds. Without that run he was 7 carries for 7 yds.
Ahmad Bradshaw: 5 carries for 35yds with a longest run of 19yds. Without that run he was 4 carries for 16 yds.
Brandon Jacobs:4 carries for 31yds with a longest run of 22yds. Without that run he was 3 carries for 9 yds.
Danny Ware: 12 carries for 21yds with a longest run of 9yds. Without that run he was 11 carries for 12 yds.
Notables:

David Carr:guy sucks, but had 1 good run for 13yds
Andre Woodson: 1 carry for 3yds
Bomar: 1 carry for 0yds

Conclusion: Giants rushed 32 times and got 139yds.  Those 6 single long runs(including the Carr scamper) counted for 92 yds towards that 139 total.  That means that they only rushed for 47 yds on the other 24 attempts.  We still gave up 139yds, but it makes me feel better knowing that the numbers are way inflated on 6 longs gains.

I don't see how this should make anyone feel better about the horrible display of tackling and run defense last night. If anything it should make people feel even worse because they gave up big, long gains.  The 1st team Defense gave up over 7 yards per carry!!!  A pile of sh*t with sugar on top is still a pile of sh*t.

I agree the J Thomas, this shouldnt make us feel any better, because the biggest runs that we gave up were against their best running backs against our best defense, this worries me a lot

Easy killer, I wasn't proclaiming that our defense was awesome.  I'm just saying that the run defense wasn't as bad as the stats made it appear.  Like you said.  If we could have tackled adn limited the big plays, we would have been in much better shape.  Honestly though I don't think that will be fixed until we get a DT that can stuff the run.

What rush defense?

Let me put it this way.  My point is that if we stop those 6 runs from turning into huge gains, they rush for 60-70yds last night.
