Both RBs are bad deals....I'm tabling all that until this season is over. We have them now. Ignore the contract and play them as roleplayers. Means some shouldn't really be heard of some weeks.
Cam has been the best rusher on this team for years now. Tolbert IMO is our best overall RB (based on scheme and line). I'd be fine parting with every RB not named Tolbert this offseason. Get some more young blood for cheap and have a real committee.
I agree. With the right players (OL) & philosophy, low cost RBs could work for our team.
I think Gettleman, from the short time he's been here, will get this team straightened away, but it will take time. He started on DL & fixed what's been broken for years (with amazing results), OL needs to be next & then the OC needs to allow a real running game to be established.
We have very good RBs with D-Will, Stew & Tolbert, but they are being used situationally (I mean that in a less than complimentary way). We are playing gimmicky football in our running game b/c we suck at run blocking (+ I have concerns that our OC doesn't know how to establish an effective run game...but we can't know til we have a solid OL); this is not a knock only on Shula...Chud didn't do this either & form what I can tell (stats)...he (Chud) is continuing his weak running offense in Cleveland.
Cam, nor any QB, should not be the leading rusher on a football team (possibly on some HS teams, but not college or NFL; arena excluded b/c it isn't real football).
