    You have a lot of teams rethinking even Game 3 approaches like the Bears.

    Just a matter of time until a 2 game PS and 18 game season.

    It solves lack of experience.

    The point I’m making is it only takes one play to blow a knee. Why add to the percentage with meaningless reps along side players he won’t be playing with..booker looks lost on the lanes out there. He’s the one that needs the reps.

    Players ask for game 4s off. Across the league the workhorses are not playing game 4. Freeman is the only workhorse back on this team.


    Who in your opinion is the most valuable RB on the team right now?

    It’s no biggie.

    But Freeman doesn’t need reps. Booker needs reps.

    It’s a GAME 4. There’s a reason no one of value plays in these games across the league. Players hate game 4s. Why? Cause there’s no gameplans. There’s a field filled with players who don’t know what they are doing and causing injuries with bad technique missed assignments etc. there’s been way too many injuries this month and part of that is due to flag happy refs changing the way players are tackled.

    It’s not worth the risk of a few reps with players and QB he won’t even play with come week 1. Game 4 injuries happen because there’s dodos out there trying to go 200% to land a job. I’m betting there will be more injuries in this game than the others. Chubbs a rookie and needs reps but you won’t see me wanting him out there.


    Reps with the 1st team > reps with scrubs.

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

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

    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.
    55.5 yards
