Guys again, Arizona has played some of the best rush stopping defenses in the league ontop of Ryan Williams and Beanie Wells are nothing more than average run of the mill running backs. Also Arizona abandoned the run in every game far too fast to give it much of a chance. That won't be the case against Buffalo.
Again I'm not saying this line is a great line, but a below average to average line, yes. They are by no means a bottom 5 offensive line in the league. Let alone the worst line in the league, which many come in here and say they certainly are. Last year Arizona averaged 4.2 yards a carry for 17th in the league.
If Arizona puts up big rushing numbers against Buffalo they will all of a sudden be in the middle of the pack for rush yards gained per game and rush yards per attempt.
Umm...Kevin Kolb and his league leading 22 sacks in the NFL would disagree with you. The 30th ranked run offense of the Cards would also like to argue that point with you.
Yes, last year they did average 4.2 ypc, Aaron Rodgers also had 16 total TDs through week 5 last year too. 2.7 ypc (worst in the NFL) is the number you want to focus on this year.
Is that really worse than the Titans YPC? Anyway, Powell could be solid. He's not going to come in and be Arian Foster, but Icould see him coming in and being a middle of the road back like benson/BJGE/etc.
