Awesomeness!!

My waning confidence in our running backs.

57 posts in this topic

Anybody that follows D Will on Facebook knows the guy is brilliant, and a great person. As a Running Back however he has digressed significantly since our last playoff appearance, and I personally don't see him as a top 20 RB in the league anymore. Ever since he and Stew got paid our running game has been awful. Our dreadful line has a lot to do with that, but slower Cam Newton lead the team in rushing last year. When I watch other backs on other teams, even guys that will be unemployed next week seem to have a lot more burst than D Will. His 5 yard per carry stat baffles me. It seems like he has a ton of 14 rush, 32 yard games. Also, he can't catch. Stew on the other hand, who I think is better than D Will can't stay healthy to save his life. I know there are better, cheaper options than these two.

I can't agree.

It's 95% oline.

You aren't serious, right?  Right?

 

Shaky o-line, no fullback, telegraphing the play before the snap, etc, etc

 

 Please tell me you are not serious.

How many teams use a FB in today's game?

maybe he is talking about more than this preseason...maybe this has been something slowly coming with signs clearly visable? Even with the bad OL play.....you don't think some of it is Williams?

Why for 2 years has Rivera preferred Stewart if he can get him on a field?

D-Will is Barry Sanders-esque. He may have 14 carries for 30 yards then break off a 60 yard TD run.

He gets yards in chunks. Not a guy that gets you 3-4 yards on every carry.

It is great because of the explosiveness but can also hurt you by getting little yards on a carry by carry basis.

2 things the huddle needs to come to grips with

1. Many of you guys have grossly overrated our talent at running back and they're not nearly as good as advertised on here or otherwise once were.

2. It's okay because you don't need good backs to win in this league. As a matter of fact, it's way down the priority list for many good teams.

The O-Line is shaky, but like I said, Cam Newton is slower and a much bigger target but lead the team in rushing last year. The NFL fullback is about as dead as floppy disks.

Cook was allegedly involved in an incident with a woman on June 23 outside of a Tallahassee bar, Clydes & Costellos, according to a heavily redacted incident report obtained by the Sentinel. The woman, according to a separate probable cause affidavit compiled by the Tallahassee Police Department, had bruises and abrasions after refusing to give her phone number or go home with an FSU football player. A probable cause affidavit stated one unidentified man approached the woman for her phone number and spoke about taking her home with him. She declined, stating she had a boyfriend. The man and a group of friends identified as five to seven FSU football players, including Cook, began to get into a heated argument with her. She told investigators a person got too close to her and she pushed him away, prompting a man she later identified as Cook to punch her multiple times in the face http://www.orlandosentinel.com/sports/florida-state-seminoles/os-fsu-dalvin-cook-accused-battery-20150710-story.html
    • And you can find a Terek Hill or Gaberial type in later rounds ..  IF i get a RB i want a 20 to 25 carry guy that can run inside and out.. Catching the ball is gravy but the most important part is being able to carry the load and kill the clock in the 4th qrt..
