The Broncos rushing game was missing in action against the Chargers. The 37 yards rushing was the lowest total in 11 years. And it came against a Chargers defense ranked 17th in the league against the run. Feature back Quentin Griffin gained 7 yards on 12 carries with a fumble. Meanwhile, Clinton Portis rushed for 94 yards on 23 carries in a losing effort against the Cowboys. The trade [and the MasterMind] aren’t looking so good right now. Everyone assumed that Denver could mount a quality running attack by plugging a new back into the system. But they were 1 for 3 in 3rd and 1 situations against the Chargers - right in line with their 3 for 9 for the season. Simply not acceptable.
