Niagara Dude Posted March 17 Share Posted March 17 3 minutes ago, OldTimer1960 said: Here we go with the 40 time obsession. Way overblown. Yes, better to be faster than slower, but RBs very rarely just run straight through gaping holes. They need to have vision, ability to avoid or run through tackles - both of which Singletary does well. No doubt, there are occasions when, after he has gotten to the open field with the above mentioned skills, he gets caught where a speedier player might have gotten more yardage, but I think it is unrealistic to think that there are tons and tons of yards left on the field due to that. Singletary is a good starting RB is he perfect? No, but neither are most other RBs. There is considerably more to being a good NFL player than straight line speed. Do you even understand anything about burst to the line? probably not. Why do you think Allen is running so much and taking so many hits, with teams loading up against the pass the running game is there. They have not had a starting level RB in years, Singletary relies on quickness and making guys miss. That is not going to happen against most NFL defensive players. He is an average RB and no team will offer him a contract because of it. 1 hour ago, Thurman#1 said: Inarguably is a bit strong. But yeah, probably a bit above average. He's always among the leaders in missed tackles and he does very well at YPA despite an OL that is probably below average. He's a good player. Not great, but good. Wouldn't be surprised to see them bring him back, based largely on what the price ends up being. You don't need to be fast. You need to be effective. Motor is effective. How about you Singletary supporters explain if he was so good and it's all on the line why no other teams are interested. Sure resign him at league min, but if they want to improve on offence they need a starting level RB so were not asking our QB to run the ball and expose him to hits.
