It's too bad that we don't do trick plays... imagine lining up split backs AB2 and Wilson. Eli hands it off to AB2 and develops the play to run off the right guard, but then AB2 turns around and flea flickers it to Wilson, who cuts off to the left.
Brown seems more patient for his blocks to develop while Bradshaw will cut back and forth between the first hole he sees. It seems like Brown is always falling forward when he runs too. I'd like to see at the very least a 50/50 split between Bradshaw and Brown but I don't know how likely that is.
"Measure Twice......Cut Once"
You couldn't be more full of **** if you were break dancing in a Port-a-Potty.......Kruunch
I agree, for some reason it seems like he's just trying to do to much to fast instead of just taking his time and letting the game develope.
You have to figure in pass protection along with the element of surprise in too. Bradshaw is probably the best pass blocking back we have. If Andre Brown comes in and gets a handoff every time he's in, they'll expect it's a run. If one running back is getting a large percentage of the snaps they'll be forced to play both the run and the pass. I think they have more confidence in Bradshaw knowing his assignments more-so than giving one back an amount of carries. It'd be nice to see Brown get some more snaps though. I don't think Wilson is ready for the burden yet.
Everyone knocks on Wilson for his supposed "poor pass blocking"
Heres a novel idea:
How about we actually put him in there and see if he really is sub-par? If he is, experience will only help!! (ala garbage time in Carolina)...and no Wilson?!?! are u f'ing kidding me.
I was thinking about that play too.....I didn't watch the replay, but I'll take Bank's word for it. And this happens VERY often.
1st and 10, inside FG range.....one crappy yard, due to jumping out of the play. If Banks is right, then that's the damn ball game right there......you're looking at a field goal attempt of less than 40 yards.
I'm so tired of watching Bradshaw bail out early.
0-2 right now as a starter. I just don't get what the attraction is. Put a damn fullback in there if it's all about pass protection and getting 3 yards per carry.
