  • Torain/Lumpkin

    I remember seeing Torain run when with trhe Redskins and the guy can run.Never seen Lumpkin so why is he playing over Torain?Is it that Lumpkin is a better blocker needed for Eli?We havent seen Torain in this offense yet,do u think they want to surprise the Falcons with him?

    If either of them were any good they'd have been signed months ago.

      I assume it has everything to do with Pass Protection as he has only been in on passing downs. Also probably the better special teams player of the 2 backs.

        So if AB cant go who would be better with Wilsoon.

          If AB can't go both Torain and Lumpkin would be active. Who would get carries after Wilson is anybody's guess.

            If either of them gets significant snaps it will mean that both AB and Wilson were carted off the field.

              Only Lumpkin has taken any offensive snaps and then only 8 over two games

                Lmao. That would been my first thought, but I learned my lesson. Steve Smith, Kevin Boss, Victor Cruz, etc. You could also say the same thing about Stevie Brown. I think JR has really good ability to judge talent. I don't think they would be here if they couldn't play, but it remains to be seen.

                What I remember about Torian is that he is punishing RB like BJ when he was healthy. This was a few years ago, so things could've changed since then.

                    Bradshaw has a sprained knee and might not even play this week. That leaves Wilson, Lumpkin and Torrain as the only healthy RB's on the team

                      hey...you know what you never know. These two guys could have renewed fire. Playing for a SB team that can win the division.
                      I dont care what they have or havent done. Its new life for them. Maybe they contribute in a good way.....

                          I thought Torrain was released from Washington because he was hurt , then fell behind the guys that replaced him in the lineup? He just wasnt producing as well as the other guys...
                          I hate Philthy. The teams, their fans, the city.

                            Lumpkin is a better blocker and receiver out of the backfield. He was a blocker for Stafford at Georgia.

                              Those were unproven guys; Lumpkin and Torain have shown what they have. Of late, it's been "not much".

                              I'm happy to be proven wrong, though.
