I thought Ball looked very good in his limited number of carries. But then again I'm expecting a guy who hits the hole and consistently falls forward for yardage over and over again rather than a walking highlight reel. That's what Ball projects as: a yardage grinder/chain mover. I think some people are looking for things out of the guy that he has simply never shown in his football career, namely electrifying moves and big yardage plays.
For what it's worth he produced 28 yards on six carries for 4.7 yards per carry. That's the kind of production we need out of our running back, assuming he can do it consistently.
