Lack of RB Production is limiting this Team

Recommended Posts

I will say something looked off about the RB handoffs in the game... its almost like there was some hesitation or the RB wasn’t always in the right place, etc... can’t put my finger on it, just didn’t seem smooth

? He absolutely did.

 

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

 

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

 

I meant to put Leveon Bell who is a 4.6 forty.

 

Did you forget to comment on Barry Sanders?

 

That video I posted, a linebacker is on Fred Jackson's heels.  He didn't run away with him, he took angles to get to the endzone.  He didn't leave anyone in a cloud of dust.

I guess #57 has more game speed than Moss and Singletary too?

 

Again, you're only saying this because we didn't draft Dobbins and knowing you, you're going to B word and complain about it every time you get the chance.

Can you think of any runs where our RBs are breaking away runs to even score?  I can't think of any.

 

They don't have the speed to do that.

It wasn't smooth.  I think it's to do with what I said in my post a moment ago, it had to do with limited work on running and a lot of work on the passing

game this offseason.  It was really abbreviated and I agree with the effort being put into the passing game.

 

I'm hopeful the run game will catch up.  I would like to see that down in Miami Sunday.

I will file this with other game 1 over reactions.

 

If this continues for next 3 games then I will become concerned.

I'd like to see a replay of Josh's throw to Singletary that was broken up downfield near the endzone. If Josh threw it a yard further down the field it's a TD. Who covered Singletary on that play?

Like Yolo said, this was a case of us gameplanning against their weaknesses, which was why we kept coming at them with 4 and even 5 WR's at once.   

 

We don't know what we have in Moss yet, but if you want to see more running you might get your wish vs Miami, they struggled against the run last year and vs Cam last week they looked slow.  They have two solid cb's in Xav Howard and Byron Jones, I would expect a stronger mix of runs.     

 

Shaq is a good add for the Fins run defense, will be interesting to see how he does out there.

If you read my initial post; I'm not taking about one game.  I'm talking over two years!  Like I said, the Ravens have 28 rushing TDs to our 8 TDs outside of Lamar and Josh.  I think two years is enough to establish a trend.  I'm just saying if we can improve this area, how much better could we be?  Is that a rationale question to ask or just an overreaction?

Repeat, this is not a problem

 

Let's focus on winning by THROWING the football

 

THIS

 

The McKenzie pop passes are essentially runs disguised as passes.  If we can't get the running game going with Moss/Singletary, get them out in routes... Moss had a TD catch in his first game.  Singletary looked good in the screen game.   

 

There's other ways to use your RB's...

This is satire right?  I'm being serious.  

 

Nope; honest question.  Do you care to imply a rational response?  Do you think this is an area where if got better production, we might be even better?

Yes they can.  They won't leave anyone in a cloud of dust but if they are good runners, they can take it to the house.

Like I said in my post, looking at the 2018 Bills Offense is worthless.  It was made up of leftovers and had a raw rookie QB.

If Josh didn't have 18 rushing TD's, then our RB's would have a lot more TD's.

With the WR talent that we have this year I would prefer passing the football 30+ times a game. I agree that we don't have a high profile RB but the two that we have are above average and both can catch. If the O-Line can keep pass blocking like it did in week 1 we need to be throwing the football a ton more this year. 

 

Both of our RB's are still very young and do different things well. I think we will get soild/good production out of our RB,s  I just don't want to see fumbles. This offense and team will now win on the arm of Allen.

Yeah, here's my response.  Settle down, it's only week #1.  That was not the game plan.  Josh passed 46 times in the game.  When they need to pound the ball, Moss will be fine

Yes; but what if I told you we scored less rushing TDs in 2019 than we did in 2018.  15 total compared to 13.

Well in order to say that we need to see them do it. I don't think we will. Doesn't mean they can't be productive but I don't think either is a breakaway speed guy who gets through the line and then is gone

Ok; so you're going to avoid the point of the thread.  All good.

I think that number is low because of Allen. 18 rushing touchdowns to this point of his career. If you add those into the totals, it looks stronger. 

But how many of those rushing TDs come off busted pass plays.  OPs point is no teams are basically scared of us scoring on them by running the ball.
