Even with Willis we still have issues converting 3rd and short but now I'm not sure we have that RBBC or next man up that can put us in 3rd and two like Willis was doing for us
Yeah, McGahee looked great next to Hillman, but I'm telling you, Ball will be just as effective as McGahee running the ball. Can Ball pass protect and always be in the correct spot like McGahee.. we shall see. But as far as pure rushing skills, McGahee wont be difficult to replace.
