great weapon, but not really what this team needs right now.
Thank you. I've been saying that I think everybody here is too focused on this home run threat stuff and blazing speed. In the end, we lost because we could not get a 1st down running the ball. We scored points, lots of them. I don't think scoring TD's is the area we need improvement. It's getting those tough short yards, for 1st downs and goal line situations. Yes a better run blocking OL will help but I think we're looking for a good sized back that still has elusiveness, can pass block, catch the ball and and all that other stuff. He doesn't need to be a track star. I'll take a strong, durable 4+ YPC who can pass block, has good vision and ball security. Sorta like a younger WM but with better ball security.
