Be careful what u ask for. Everyone thought RB's grew on trees after Davis and look how long it took to get past Foster.

But RBs do grow on tress now

How quick people forget he's not been able to finish a season healthy, after one preseason game. 

 

How quickly YOU forget that he has finished a season healthy.  Four of them, in fact.  Two thirds of all his seasons as a pro, he has played in at least 14 games.

You think Shula is going to run a new offense with a different philosophy? Something bad would have to happen for that to occur.

What about Tolbert? He was consider by most our best RB last year?

 

there's no change in philosophy, we are considered to have a better team offensively then last year by most, we very well may speed up the pace which would allow guys to get more chances to shine, changes will be made just because the simple fact we have different personal....there so many little things that factor into the reason we average 30 rush attempts a day that won't be the same case this year, our guards are healthy is one example

 

 

wow please let me know the fool who though tolbert was the better running back............other then you obviously......getting a bit ridiculous

A large percentage of this board viewed Tolbert as the best overall RB last season. Go pull old threads and get names. There are countless threads bashing Shula for not giving Tolbert more reps.

Simply put...Tolbert fits what we try to do on O. Ball control.

Tolbert was a Pro Bowler last year.....it wasn't for lead blocking. It was his overall ability.

i'm not pulling up names you prove you point and find those ppl because that's foolish to say such, yes he did need more carries but better then d will no, tolbert was a probowler cause he's one of the few fb's who can do more then block, kuhn and reece are the others there isn't a slew of competition at fb in the entire league

you do realize in a ball control pounding O scheme....better RBs in a vacuum aren't actually always better once in that scheme?

Moving the chains and consistent tough yards > boom or bust running in our scheme

Week 1 - Tampa Bay. You can only pick to have for the game against that stout front. Williams or Tolbert. Pick one.

    • I don't feel like we're a sleeper team. We are just mercurial as a franchise- up, down, and in the middle. I really do not know what to expect this year. As it's been said, the O-line is a big question mark. Our interior is good, but the tackle spot is a mystery. I wasn't and am still not high on the Lil Kalil signing, and not because of the contract. He has declined every year since his rookie year. Am I suppose to believe that he has really been chronically injured this whole time and now that he is here with Ryan he is suppose to magically be healthy and perform? I'm not saying it isn't possible- I'm not saying he's def going to suck either. I just have no clue. I think it's a big time gamble from Gman. I hope it works out. And I desperately want to be proved wrong about it too. I hope he fills the hole that's been there since Gross left as a long term solution. And the other thing that worries me that is the coaching staff. Everyone talks about Shula but I'm not high on RR. He took zero accountability in his post season presser- as apposed to Gman who acknowledged his mistakes. I've never really liked him- I'm really wondering if Riverboat was just fools gold. He just feels like Fox 2.0- don't think he can't get us a Lombardi- which is sad because I feel like our roster can. Again, I hope I'm wrong about this. These two things plus our division- The NFCS will be a dogfight this year. 
    • Yeah we fell asleep..the offensive like ducked and the secondary ducked til Bradbury and the other kid stepped up.. but season was done.. need a healthy o-Lind this year and execute or these new weapons are pointless
