Coffee leads NFL in preseason rushing

Former Alabama Crimson Tide player Glen Coffee is having a strong preseason in the NFL. This part of the above story caught my eye: “Our main focus as far as running the ball is just to physically dominate the line of scrimmage,” rookie running back Glen Coffee said Tuesday. “We’ve definitely been able to do that.”

Coffee and San Francisco’s other backs have flourished in new offensive coordinator Jimmy Raye’s system.

Coffee leads the NFL with 230 yards rushing and the 49ers are averaging a league-best 170.7 yards per game on the ground, leaving them 12th in the league in total offense.
