Hooray for Hart's semi-return. Very easy day of charting, 15 carries. Minor had 6 carries for 5 yards, and Brown had 2 for -1, so they get the boot this time. 100% Harty goodness.
O-Line: Long-Boren-Kraus-Ciulla-Schilling (ABC incorrectly puts McAvoy at RG).

Notes to know:
- Carry #13: Designed to the left, yards up the middle.
Left: 7 carries, 49 yards
Middle: 4 carries, 50 yards
Right: 4 carries, 0 yards
Total: 15 carries, 99 yards
- If you look at the play by play, you notice that 69 yards came on two carries. Other than that, this was a very mediocre performance that would've been even worse if I charted pass protection, since Saint-Dic lived in the backfield all day.
- It's interesting to consider: What would've happened if Hart was healthy enough to have more than two carries in the second half? It is not unreasonable to assume that he would've popped off a couple more 30+ yarders, but how would that have altered the playcalling? Would we still have fallen down by 10 if we had been able to move (run) the ball? If so, would we have still been able to come back? I ask that one because I'm wondering if DeBord and Carr would've let Henne sling it around as much as he did on the last two drives if there was a healthier Hart behind him. It's interesting to consider, and the -2 overall seems to be weird, but it is what it is.
- Please be healthy the next two weeks, Mike. Please.
