I’m really thinking starting this week they need to find a way to run the ball more, and better. I really think if they can run the ball 25-30 times a game this team will be a playoff team. This team has been missing a run game for years now, and it’s time to find that again. They have 3 good RB on this team, so use all 3 and run the crap out of the ball!

They are running it plenty. Taking the ball out of Burrow's hands to push the run doesn't feel like a good idea to me. They need to be more effective in short yardage situations in any event.

I'm all for running the ball more and taking some of the pressure off the offense.
However, that only works when the running game is picking up first downs and actually pushing the ball down the field.
This team seems to have struggled doing just that and as Mem pointed out, performing in short yardage situations.

If that's not working, put the ball in Burrow's hands and give him the latitude to make calls based on his reading of the defense.

Can’t run the ball unless you can churn out first downs.   They’ve been horrible running and throwing in 2nd/3rd and manageable.

Also can’t run the ball as much giving the ball up to the other team.
