Lack of RB Production is limiting this Team

No. Because our RBs are slow. None have breakaway speed. 

 

You absolutely need breakaway speed as a RB to take it to the house.  

Here's a perfect example.  Fred Jackson was really fast right?

I was at that game.... while Jackson wasn't a guy with breakaway speed he certainly had more game day speed than Motor and Moss.

Are we sure Moss doesn't have breakaway speed? We saw him carry the ball into a pile a few times.

 

He had at least one d-lineman squared up with him on each of his carries.

Whelp time to burn it down and start over.

 

Certainly not saying that; are you satisfied with the RB production?  Perhaps you are and that's fine.  Just trying to have a conversation here.

I agree.  The eyeball test tells me that our RB's are getting wrapped up behind or at the LOS far too often.  I'm still in the Show Me stage with Singletary and so far not impressed at all with Moss.  I hope I am wrong as the season progresses.

LOL...no he didn't.  This is you reaching again.  What made Jackson great is his angles, not speed.  

Barry Sanders didn't have speed.

Lesean McCoy didn't have speed.

 

You're only saying this because you won't let go of not drafting Dobbins.

At TBD, conversations aren't allowed unless you are talking up the team.😉

I think Singletary is underrated on this board. He isn't a home run hitter but he's a lead back.

 

I have no idea with Moss. Looked sluggish in game 1, but it was literally game 1 of his pro career.

Ugh... so this is the new thing we’ve found to be “concerned” about? 

 

It was one week vs a VERY good run D. We game planned and adjusted to win with the passing game. It’s what good teams do.

 

In the immortal words of Aaron Rodgers “relax.”

? He absolutely did.

 

I didn't say speed made Jackson great. I said he was faster on the field than both Moss and Motor... which he is. Jacksons vision made him a very good back.

 

McCoy didn't have speed? Wtf are you talking about? Lol.

Are Moss or Motor doing that?

Point of my inquiry is this?  Everyone knows Lamar Jackson is a threat running the ball, just like Allen.  But the Ravens got 14 rushing TDs in each 2018 and 2019 not counting Lamar's contribution.  That's 28 TDs compared to our 8 in two years.  If we could improve that, we would improve our PPG average in my opinion.

Couple thoughts:

 

1.  the jets have a good run d

2.  josh allen gets a lot of the rushing tds, so the running backs have less.  i wouldn't look at the lack of rb td's as meaning we have a lack of RB production

3.  aside from gore, the running game was actually really efficient last year.  singletary had 5.1 ypc.. that's pretty good.

Try answering the question as a whole?  Do think this is sufficient?

The 2018 Bills offense should not even come into a conversation.  It was made up of "placeholders" until the proper personnel were acquired.

The simple fact that Daboll was OC is not realistic.  It's like saying Eisenhower should of been ready for D-Day in 1942.

This year the offense should show everyone what it is capable of with a young veteran QB executing specific game plans.

 

Let's look at what trends we can see going forward starting this year.  The running game (RB wise) was not impressive statistically the first game.

It was partially a result from a specific game plan so some consideration needs to be made.  I'm also going to consider that a lot of effort seems

to have been given to the passing game improving during the shortened preseason.  

 

IF going forward this "one game trend" proves to be a common result then I will have a concern.  I wouldn't want to see the Bills as any type

of a one dimensional or one scheme orientated unit and I'm probably guessing that Daboll and McDermott do not either.

The 8th best right rushing team from 2019 needs to do something about this. 

 

7 teams were better.  I'm sick of your defeatist attitude.  😀
