Barner's Impact Against Arizona

What has happened to the smoke routes?! Smitty and Ginn would excel at these and Chud had good success even with Lafell.

It was bothering me watching the Broncos last week when they make offense seem so easy. Demarius Thomas got great yardage from these passes and keeps the QB in rhythm.


Cam sucks at them and defensives in general play them better than a few years ago.

I think Barner will be used later on, as the season progressives.After taking off the amount of time he has, I'm not convinced he'll be used a whole lot against Arizona

After watching Sproles rack up 2 td's and over 100 yards in the FIRST HALF Monday night, I couldn't help but think about the possibilities with Barner.

 

 

That said, we still have the Shula-meister running the show, so who knows.

I'm ready to see what this kid has.  Not sure how much he will play, but I'm sure he'll get a few touches.  The next few years could be exciting with him and b. williams.

Do you think he will get a shot a punt returns?

 

I know ginn is our #1 and rightfully so, still, do you give him a shot to shine in this game?  If he does, that will be good for ginns' body down the stretch.  Dont get me wrong, I want ginn in clutch, game deciding punt returns but we really need him healthy at wr.

 

would love to see barner run one back in his debut!

Shula used Dunn well in Tampa. He was an all around RB.

I doubt he sees the field. Maybe once or twice

williams has a history of running well against the cardinals.

 

unless williams just goes flat all of a sudden or barner does something absolutely spectacular right out of the box, i don't see barner getting much playing time.

Ginn is one of the best in the game....and he has had limited chances. You don't limit him more IMO.

You guys have to realize that Barner is not an NFL starter back until he develops. It would be a dream if he develops into the next Sproles but that is a very unique situation. It is much easier to develop an offense around a back like Williams or Stewart who are both bigger and plenty fast and can block.

 

Barner has a great college style that may not translate into the NFL. Or maybe it will.

 

But don't expect him just to step in and take carries away from Williams

Barner will fit well into nickel looks...

I predict him to finish 2nd rushing yards (RBs) and first in rec yards (RBs) this season
