Falcons | Michael Turner frustrated

Atlanta Falcons RB Michael Turner said following Week 6 he does not have an explanation for why the team has not run the football more this season. "I'm not sure why it's going like this," Turner said. "It's great to be 6-0 and everything. But we can't just assume we're always going to be able to get an interception or a last-minute field goal every time. At some point we're going to have to run the ball. We've got to be able to knock it in (the endzone)." Part of the reason why the Falcons have ran less this season is because Turner looks slow at times, in addition to the offensive line being better at pass protection than opening holes in the run game. Head coach Mike Smith conceded the running game is not where he would like it to be.
