And why would wanting a more balanced running game mean he doesn't want to win?
Not in a serious attempt at playing....

I mean his shoulder injury last year happened right around the time we stopped winning. I think less designed runs for Kyler might be a good thing in the long run.
This is a sure fire jinx
The lesson isn't that he should run less. It's that he shouldn't run full speed into a defender.
U mean slide into a defender
Actually, the problem is we don't have a good running game when Kyler isn't running/can't run a lot. I don't see that changing much.
He got hurt trying to get that extra inch for a 1st down at a critical juncture of a game. With our pathetic 4th & 1 running game, he felt he had to take the risk & get hit in the process. Hopefully by improving the interior of the OL & adding a power type runner, he won’t feel that need & get down sooner this year.
Biggest problem is it becomes quite predictable.
I remember @Chris_Sanders talked about it during the season, but I lost count on how many times we call a predictable RPO up the middle after completing a long pass the past 2 years.
I'm hoping that Rondale changes this, as I think that he'll give us an added option with runs out of the backfield.
Teams started just crashing on Kyler on the RPO and the weak middle of the OL couldn't hold up if Drake/Edmonds got the ball.
I think having a competent center in Hudson will make a world of difference this year.
Didnt know where to post this.
I'm going to agree FB94!
I think our biggest weakness on the OL last year was our center position. How could KM line up under center the guy was getting pushed back 1-2 yards on a lot of plays? If we aren't under center, you have no play action. It's RPO or bust and the defense would rather just lay KM out. I hope we incorporate lining up under center more this year. Maybe it helps the run game, plus it will open up the passing game and if we throw int he RPO's, our offense can be the 3 headed monster like Kyler's sports dream (Football, Baseball and FaZe).
