Still need more RB depth

This is the correct answer. @CRA just found something new to complain about. He is so far down the rabbit hole, he may never see daylight again.

Did you even read what he wrote? All CRA is saying here is that neither Form an nor Hubbard have all-around skillsets like CMC, and that we saw last year how Abdullah provided the playstyle most similar to CMC because he could do both. As such, getting someone like that who isn't one-dimensional would be ideal.

It's a valid thought if this offense shakes out like it's appearing it may do and there is no real negativity or complaining anywhere in that post.

Yuppers. Now if he had said WR, or DT, or heck even TE, or DE I might agree with needing some depth. But RB?

If CMC goes down and we play Matt Corral….we don’t have the backfield in place for him to be successful IMO.   And if we play Matt Corral and CMC is healthy it might be beneficial to give CMC a fair amount of slot WR looks.  

Specifically brought it up because it isn’t an obvious spot or conversation.

You are seeing Ghosts where there aren't any. 

 

We have more depth there than any position other than maybe Oline, and DBs. 

 

You have this idea that there is such a thing as a "Matt Corall centric Offense". And you just know our RBs don't fit that scheme. 

 

 

Like I said. You are seeing Ghosts.

 

Maybe we can wait to see what type of Offense we run, before we call for replacement players?

It is a valid concern given the past 2 years the offense was centered around CMC being the #1 option and he missed most of both seasons.

I dont want to see a repeat either, maybe you are ok with rolling the dice on him staying healthy, but I hope our offense has a more varied approach this season.

When your lead back hasn't played a full season in 3 years the position will never be solidified. It would not hurt to have a fallback option down the line. Everyone wants McCaffrey to play a full season but we all know we will be waiting for the inevitable possibility.

We have RB depth. Injuries happen. If you want to worry about a position group hurting after an injury? Let's talk WR, or LB. Hellz Bellz that Dline is glue and tape.

 

 

 

Complaining without a solution is just bit(hing. And right now, there is no way to fix this COMPLAINT.

Another pro of adding RB that fits a Corral friendly scheme would be the hopeful flexibility of moving CMC to the slot some.  Which could be a lethal combo with Corral’s quick trigger 

Funny you should mention...

I agree with the original post.  We need to be deeper here.  The problem is Chuba is a tail back with the worst hands, possibly in the league.   His blocking fits his size, which isn't big.  If we can't use him on passing downs and  rotate him we telegraph what we're doing, which is what happened last year with Abdullah.  They would literally leave Chuba uncovered, knowing he'd drop it.

I get he was a rookie, but if he can't catch this year, he needs to be gone.  We need that spot.

I agree we need to bring in somebody.

RBs are not a dime a dozen -- which is why the Panthers were 4-3 with CMC and 1-9 without him last year. That said, it's also about how you maximize their talents, which Rhule cannot do and refuses to do. The ones who are on the roster, presently, though, are good enough to handle the job between CMC, Foreman and Hubbard.

When people say that I think they are referring to average capable RBs.  We signed a midseason FA RB in Abdullah who did quite well.  RBs like CMC, Kamara, Cook etc are in a different class, if they can stay healthy they are game changers.

It has to do with the differential with your backup RB.  Rhule's and/or  Brady's mistake was thinking Chuba and CMC were interchangeable.  They weren't.  When CMC went down in 2020, we won our first game with Mike Davis.  There is a drop off from CMC to Davis but there is a cliff of cosmic proportions from CMC to Chuba.  We stopped targeting Chuba all together as the season dragged on. 

How was that O going to function without a reliable check down target?  It wasn't and it didn't.

    • You need a more reliable source like a random guy who shares your political views on Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube that “did his own research”
    • Still can't make perfect sense on this 3days later until it leads to either Gordon or Terry package trade.. If not this seem like another example of MJ being cheap AF..
    • You got to give them some slack. They thought they had their perfect coach in Atkinson and then they didn't. They obviously didn't want Mark Jackson and Jordan and Mitch oddly want to retain most if not all of the coaches. In their eyes they were jilted and embarrassed in public by this guy and the negative media afterwards. They turned to somebody they could trust, somebody that already wanted the job and wouldn't say no and has always been a coach that was good at making something out of nothing. I'm not mad here. The trust factor is already there. They really really know each other, Mitch has done waaaaay better than Cho. I would have gave Mark Jackson an interview but I understand why Jordan hired someone who would be more loyal. Unfinished business apparently. It is what it is now. Cliff doesn't shoot. I've already moved past it. You should too. If they sign Miles, Mitch has done well this off-season and this squad is automatically better defensively with 7'2" Williams and Kai coming into the lineup after killing the G League. Experience at coach is what we were missing, a young defensive big was what we were missing. Beelieve!
