Is it just me, or was anyone esle expecting more from Tolbert. He has run well when given the chance, but I've been unimpressed with his catching, or lack there of, out of the backfield. He's dropped a few key passes lately. I thought that he'd bring that Sproles effect out of the backfield, from the FB position. We obviously don't run a typical formation that uses a FB anymore but I expected more...

Yeah he has missed on some pretty key drive ending catches... Been wondering this myself.

Not impressed so far.

Nakamura on the other hand.

I'm disappointed in him, but it's still early and he's building a rapport with Cam. I'm equally disappointed with pass catching options not named Smith and Olsen.

I'd like to see Tolbert running more routes in the middle of the field, especially since Olsen has been playing exceptionally as of late and often times lined up as a wide receiver out wide. Having Tolbert running a slot/tightend route against linebackers is a matchup he could exploit.

I think what I'm surprised about is that they're really using him like a fullback. I thought that was just a smokescreen. Damn you, Chud, utilize your friggin' assets not named Cam.

I really don't know what it is, or why he's dropping so many passes. I don't recall him dropping many passes in SDC. Maybe, Chud has yet to find what fits him best. But I'd think that he'd already know that...

    • lol no one takes him seriously. He gets a courage award for bringing his hand-me-down  dad-politics into ttb while still asking to himself, "what does ttb mean again?"
    • I'm extremely pumped by this addition. It has to be the biggest addition since the team came back to Charlotte. I was too young to follow the original talented Hornets (Im sad), so I'm not going back that far. People and fans can say what they want about D12, but the man still have a lot left in his tank. And, Im tired of hearing how he doesnt fit in today's game anymore. There are only a handfull of big men today that I can really say, can shoot the ball: Davis, Towns, Embiid, Cousins and Aldridge.  Howard can still dominate! That's all that matters. The only neg I will give Howard is that I do see a lack of desire/effort to play at times. But, I believe MJ can help motivate him back to being a dominant big man again for next two years here.  Dwight Howard averaged a double-double last season: 13.5 ppg, 12.7 rpg, 1.2 bpg, and 1.4 apg.  D12 had "53", I said FIFTY-THREE double doubles last season. He had six games where he averaged 20 rebounds or more.  Guess who was the last Bobcats/Hornets era to even come close to that number.....Emeka Okafor in 2004 as a rookie with 47 double doubles. Then Big Al had 42 in 2013. Howard did that while averaging 29.7 min per game. If you count out his 2014 season where he only played in 41 games, last season was the LEAST amount of minutes played per game in Howard's career.  Only three guys (Towns, Whiteside and Gobert) averaged more double doubles than Howard in 2016. And only four other guys ( Whiteside, Drummond, DJordan and Gobert) averaged more RPG than Howard last season. Other than Towns, none of those guys mentioned above can really shoot the ball any better than Howard. But, teams still want them on their teams for big contracts.
