Barner over Williams

Recommended Posts

It doesnt matter who you give the ball to with this offensive line.You can have an average back with an outstanding line and have a good running game. On the other hand,you could have Walter Payton running behind this group and he would struggle. When you have the defense constantly five yards behind the line of scrimmage with your Oline fat asses running around in circles or doing belly flops,there ain't no running game gonna b going on.

How many teams did RBs run the ball well against last year?

How well have they ran in practice this preseason against anyone?

we ran well on what, 3 teams last year? Ravens D ain't the issue

you don't have to change how you respond. Different opinions is why the board is here.....

I'm sure you can articulate a drastically different opinion "nicely".

Did you not think the OL was an issue last year? Williams was basically a 3 yard per carry RB.....last game is the year gave him almost a full yard bump

You guys are crazy.

Well, there is definitive proof I am on the right track right there. :)

The OL is not great, but they are poorly suited for Shula's playbook, which depends greatly on timing, quick thin-slicing of the defense, and agility, abilities that are in short supply on this roster.  It would be too simplistic to say "square peg in round hole," but it's really the best analogy.

I think the difference may be a 2 ypc average versus a 1.5 ypc average. Barner has a better chance but no one is succeeding behind that line. With no changes, Cam is the leading rusher on broken plays alone.

Shula has to adapt then. Cannot replace all of them, but he can play to their strengths, if they have any.

Or more read option....2 Oregon RBs in case one goes down will help

given these 2 options based on what we've seen so far we might as well just pass every play.

Precisely why I started a thread stating Barner will end the season as our feature back.

Goofy azz thread, is a goofy azz thread.

According to this thread if you like DWill you are a homer, and haven't been paying attention. If you like Barner you are a revolutionary genius. Man, you gotta love this place.

Yet very few folks even tried to answer the question. The sad part is, few even tried. All everyone wanted to do was throw in their 2 cents and sound smart.

If any of you can truly tell me how the running game will look week 1, then I will listen. Until that miraculously comes to pass, I will refrain from believing any of you DWill haters.

Ya, let's replace a RB with an almost 5ypc career with a rookie. Smart thinking like that is what you come to expect from way too many Huddlers.

As has been stated. Giving DWill 7-9 carries a game, and you don't know what you'll get. Get him close to 20 carries, and he will get you close to 100 yards. The problem is, we don't feed him. Yet you want him to produce like we do.

Some fans will find ANYTHING to worry over. This is just another example.

Sorry for the rant. But you folks slay me.

if it's Barner then trade DW muy pronto for an O lineman.

He is 30 with a fat contract....and hasn't been a beast in recent years...I don't think our phone would be ringing if we put that out there
