I was a bit surprised that they started the game with Folkerts at center instead of Remmers with Daryl at RT.Thought that was pretty much a done deal. I will say, Folkerts didn't do himself any favors in that game.
Here's one. It's 5:55pm here in Beijing right now. At 11:20am on Thursday (also 11:20am in my brain) tomorrow morning I'll be jumping on a plane. 15 hours later, I am scheduled to arrive in Detroit at 11:26am (11:26pm in my brain). After sitting in the Detroit airport for 5 hours, I depart at 4:30pm (4:30am in my brain) for Atlanta, arriving at 6:25pm (6:25am in my brain). 1 hour layover in Atlanta (as long as I don't miss my connection). I depart Atlanta at 7:25pm (7:25am in my brain), and land at home in Wilmington at 8:48pm on Thursday (8:48am Friday in....well ,you get it). I guess my point is that, even after all that, I'd still proably make the 4 hour drive to Charlotte for the game if I had free tickets. Just sayin...
1. Kuhne played the whole season. 2. We use Tolbert as a fullback any time we don't hand him the ball. And I'd venture to say that less than half of his snaps included carries. Can we get the stats on this?
Then by that rationale, we should probably just do away with all fullbacks. Their stats are awful. The highest rushing total for a FB last year for the entire season was 85 yards (John Kuhne). While we're at it, let's get rid of all those Guards. I'm not even sure what they are doing out there? No yards at all. Get off your butts and catch a pass or something.
I think the team is better with him in there. Look at games last year with and without Tolbert. It could be his effect on how defenses play against us when he's in the backfield, or it could be a correlation and not causal, but we win games when he's in there.
