Did you notice something similar about the Buffalo and Minnesota schedule?
1. They both played ATL (#1 rushing team in '04)
2. They both played NO (Deuce McAllister and a mobile QB)
3. Both played Cadillac Williams who Gruden pounds 30+ times
I would also like to point out that the Buffalo and Minny offenses have been HORRENDOUS so far. Look at the time of possession stats. Ugly. Of course they are gonna get run on if they can't move the ball.
With both teams only playing 4 games, Caddy's huge performances heavily skew the numbers. If Caddy went for 500 yard on Pittsburgh, they'll be the worst run defense in the league. Are they? Probably not.
Cadillac has put up impressive numbers behind a garbage Offensive Line. In fact, the draft guide I use (PA) has them ranked last in the NFL.
You are really grasping at straws to discredit this guy.
