I’ll agree that he lacks burst but he does break tackles routinely 

Routinely is very subjective lol

Cant run him every play, as he was used a lot in this game. Could have used on blitz pickups thats for sure , Allen was getting killed back there.

 

 

 

He's 5' 7", maybe 200#.  He's not going to stop many blitzers.

 

He's a decent back, but not a feature back.  They need a big fast playmaker in the backfield.

im surprised there isnt more screen game with him, he seems like he could become a very versatile back in the passing game

There is, he dropped it yesterday.  He had a mile to go without being touched too

He was really good yesterday, except for that drop.

 

However, during his longest run I had a feeling that if he wasn't focused on stiffarming defenders who were actually behind him but solely on straight run to the endzone, it could have been TD. I just rewatched the whole thing and it still looks like that to me.

 

Can you guys have a look?

Seriously what is the point of gore at this point. He’s done. They need to activate Yeldon and get him going in the passing game at least. Just another weapon to use out of the backfield.

I get angry seeing him on the field.  If it’s not a negative play it’s a yard or two.

I don't understand why Daboll doesn't use him even more than he does. Yes, they were stacking the box, but his forte is making people miss and turning nothing into something. People here are saying we need a bigger back, but why? Singletary routinely moves piles. Surprising but true. Bigger, upright backs (remember Carwell Gardner?) often can't do that. I've said this elsewhere, but he reminds me of Thurman Thomas in his first year, when he too was underutilized but had a high average and showed he could catch the ball. Sure, find Singletary a Kenny Davis type to back him up, but I'm fine with him as a feature back. Look at it this way: he hasn't been shut down yet, except by Daboll. Which is more likely to succeed on third and three: a long bomb by a QB who may be historically inaccurate on throws over 30 yards, or a run by Singletary, who averages five yards a carry? Give him some sweeps and screens--remember those?--and ride him, not Allen.

Like the way he wiggles and makes them miss. Having said that, watching the game yesterday it appeared like Wink Martindale was not worried about him stopping many blitzers. As a matter of fact, he got blown up a few times, expect more of it.

Singletary should be used like Sony Michel And yeldon like white for the patriots. Gore should just coach them up from the sidelines.

That drop in the flat, wide open though.  Professionals don’t miss those. 

He is a good RB with protection. Doesn’t really specialize in anything. 
 

Stop using him as a WR. 

He's been a much better pass catcher than expected. His big knock coming out was his receiving skills. BTW, that was a tough catch for any receiver. Let's get on Beasley and Knox while we're at it.

Singletary is going to be a stud.

 

Can't wait to see what he can do next year as the full time starter.

Im not drafting a back to be a pass blocker, that ups to the line to do a better job. 

 

Disagree about Singletary, he is most definitely a feature back and this season has proven it . The point i was making to the other poster is he cant be the only one making plays we need better weapons at the receiver position.

I completely agree. The NFL is now a 2 RB system. Look at Ingram and Edward's today for Baltimore. I see McD drafting Jonathan Taylor in the late 1st to be our RB1 and Singletary RB2. We had way too many 2nd & 9's today. Then draft a wr in the 2nd round. Hopefully somebody better than Zay. We still are missing a true #1 receiver.

I think it’ll be Tee Higgins, WR, Clemson. I suspect we’ll be adding a few linemen too on both sides of the ball.

If he had the speed he would have been a 1st round pick. Not many guys have his vision, contact balance and elusiveness with break away speed.

I’m not sure if I’d go so far as to call him a feature back, but he’s definitely a lead back in a committee or part of a 1-2 punch. He really reminds me if Tiki Barber in a lot of ways... Similar size, slippery, will break arm tackles, burst in the box, versitile, lacks Ferrari speed. Match him up with a hammer to wear down defenses and then Singletary will pop off some back breaking runs late in games.

How many 20-30 yard runs does any back get in a season?

Lol this is one of those fun things to go back and look at the draft threads and how many people FREAKED out we wasted a pick on a slow guy whose game would never translate to the pro level. People went nuts when we picked him 

 

I have a hard time squaring two thoughts.  When you read his RB RAS as around 1 but then watch him make moves that leave tacklers stumbling and wrapping up air you wonder how both can be true.  I would have thought either you are a quick twitch, extremely agile, freakish athlete or not.  Hopefully he gives us many years as a Bill to ponder it.

Singletary (which was a pick I hated, more so because I thought they could have gotten him later) has impressed a lot. He is probably going to knock on 1000 yards (850-900) which is impressive for a rookie let alone a rookie that missed games due to injury and split time and wasn't the lead back until late. He kind of reminds me of a Lev Bell type runner, super patient, good speed, and a low center of power. I don't think he is quite as patient as Bell (although he could develop that) and I think Bell is a greater pass catcher but that is the type of player Singletary reminds me of.
