Must have been Tomase?? Q: What was the rationale behind starting the game with nine straight running plays. BB: To work on the running game. Q: Why that in particular? Was it sending any kind of message? Was there anything more to it than that? BB: Well, if you want to work on your running game, you have to call running plays. I donâ€™t know how else to do it. Gotta love BB, it just won't ever get any better!!
