Am I the only one that wants to see more Darrin Reaves, possibly even with the first string?

The kid 5'10 220 , but can cut like he is on rails and gets low. It seemed to me the entire run game picked up a bit the moment he stepped onto the field.

 

Do the Panthers need to get a really good look at him earlier in the game to really be able to evaluate him? Would it be worth it to limit Barner carries to give him more?

 

What sayest thou, huddle?

Hell yeah! He runs hard and has some quick cuts. Definitely keep him instead of Barner.

You're not alone. I believe at this point he could be a better option that JStew ( who stays injured).

We know what DeAngelo and Stewart give us so i would be more than happy to see him get some time in with the 1st string.

The entire running game struggled to get much going... Barner was shut down all game long and Fozzy Whittaker and Darrin Reaves had a couple decent runs, albeit late in the game... This all still points to our issues at OL and getting those big men settled in their new positions and finding a rhythm with each other..

We didnt spend a 6th round pick on him, otherwise I would say he would be a all pro for sure.

I'm sure we will.  The Reaves v. Barner v. Whitaker preseason battle is one that's winner could definitely see playing time.

 

Reaves looks like he's got the most authority when he runs.  Decisive with his cuts as well.

I'm all for it. Done with barner he has to do something amazing in the next preseason game to get my attention again. I could care less how good he looks in practice.

I'd like to see him and Barner split carries with Reaves being the workhorse/ between the tackles guy and Other KB used off tackle and in the screen game.

Barner doesn't fit our scheme...

But claiming it is just him sucking is wrong



Barry Sanders ain't going nowhere with this OL
