Michael Turner has been having a little trouble matching last year's production. If the Falcon's hope to make a serious run at the Super Bowl, the running game is going to have to show up in a much bigger way.
Moreover, I've been wondering about Turner's fumbling problem too. Maybe his sore thumb from last year hasn't totally healed and he's worrying about fumbling with each carry.
He seems to be going down a lot easier as well. Not as many yards after contact as last year. With opposing defense's committed to stopping the run, there have been few running lanes for Turner to shoot through untouched.
Norwood going down really hurts our change of pace at that position. Did they sign anybody else this week?
