    I thought it wasn't a good sign when a veteran plays in the 4th pre-season game

      He played with the 2nd team against the Skins.

      He had a decent game and overall I do think he is better than Booker, but he doesn't look special like he did last year and I didn't see the quick cuts that he was making last preseason that had us all so excited. At the end of the day I don't have very high hopes for either.

        IDK. He's a rookie. I could see the staff thinking a little time this week will be valuable for him whether or not he's the starter.

          I'd be more if we haven't been doing RB by committee for years now. Still I worry about their ability to evaluate RB talent. We trade for a known previously solid RB.. he looks good.. so then we basically sit him for the year and then dump him. Because.. reasons. So my confidence is not super high they will make the right choice.

            Charles kept fumbling, that is why they stopped giving him the ball.

              one fumble is worth how many yards. Teams will take 3.5 yrds a carry with no fumbles over 5 yrds a carry but you put the ball on the ground.

                I miss the good old days when somebody would type in a full page rant about preseason games. Twitter and texting have trained people to cut it short, a negative IMO.

                    Could just be the staff wanting to give the rookie more reps??

                      He’s got a lot of treadwear in college. Massive reps. Putting him behind a back up OL just get some more reps is foolish.

                          OMFG, he is a rookie, a rookie that has done exactly squat in the NFL. He needs reps to grow and figure it out. You know damn well he is going to make some stupid rookie mistakes throughout the year. It's better is he does them in the preseason.

                            This is Vance Joseph and company. Nothing should be surprising. They are legitimately way in over their head with what's going on.

                              He fumbled twice. Once it was knocked out from behind. Only one fumble was his "fault." Not sure how that is "kept fumbling."
