Tolbert likely is aided b/c the best goaline player in the NFL is Cam.....so the fact he doesn't get it every time helps him when he does.

 

Insert DA and hand it off to Tolbert and his success likely goes down

And the fact that he's a human bowling ball. I don't know if I've ever seen him moved back when he hits his first man.

not doubt he is a good short yardage RB....putting him w/ Cam is deadly.  Double Trouble almost has no business inside the 10

He's got the perfect make up for a short yardage back. He's short, stocky, runs "behind his pads", maintains a low center of gravity and holds on to the ball.

i'd like to see cam's numbers on the goal line.

 

i'd like to see barner in those packages as well. cam+tolbert+barner on the goalline...soooo many options.

Do you have the number of plays we ran inside the 5?

True. Barner was a dangerous receiver at Oregon and we know Tolbert has great hands. Sooo many options.

 

2 TE and 2 RB would be a match up nightmare.

Keep in mind, those touchdowns came via the last couple of games of year. Imagine had Chud utilized him properly during the regular season (12-15 TDs).

If Stewart misses any serious time with his injuries, Tolbert may see an increased role in the offense

inside the ten should automatically mean tolbert time.

 

he averaged just a hair short of 10 yards per reception last season too
