What a difference a day makes! Unlike my article on UGA (45 points of disappointment) the Falcons left me with a feeling of elation. For all the good stuff the Falcons did in manhandling the 49’ers, I still not like the direction of the running game.
Running back Michael Turner finished the game with 22 carries for 97 yards and three touchdowns. Since he was acquired by the Falcons last season, Atlanta is 13-1 when he totals more than 20 carries per game.
Nice statistic, and there are plenty of others in the link. I guess 4 yards per carry is not so bad, but when did Turner start fumbling?
