Barner's Impact Against Arizona

77 posts in this topic

We've still run 0 screens to Ted Ginn, which is a glaringly obvious move that should be staring them in the face. I doubt we do anything special with Barner.

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.

2 touches at the most. Since his ball security was a bit of an issue they will bring him along slowly in tight games...if its a blowout he would see more work.

All depends on if he proved in practice he had it all upstairs....I don't think RR is worried about anything except the mental aspect.

Also depends on how Williams runs and how we attack offensively. If we need to get in the shotgun and spread things out ......Tolbert and Barner both become better option

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.

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.
