    Remember now Killdrive is a great OC and cannot be replaced and Eli is a future hall of famer, so explain to us haters what the deal is.

    This should be very interesting!!! or are you just devil advocates that try to bring balance to the boards ?
    This reasons for this season's offenses have been explained ad nauseum; it's just that your blind hate of KG makes you disregard those explanations out of hand.

    The last 5 years of his career Tiki averaged over 300 carries per year. Then add to that averaging 60+ receptions per year as well.

    Ahmad Bradshaw and Jacobs averaged half of that (and a third on receptions).

    There's a huge difference between "spelling" and "splitting".

    Either can work and no way is better than the other ... it just depends on personnel. If we had Adrian Petersen (or Tiki still for that matter), would you really want to see AB or Jacobs getting half the carries?

    P.S.- Jacobs had less than 50 attempts in 2005 and less than 100 attempts in 2006 ... the years he was spelling Tiki.

    We clearly don't have a feature back now, IMO. That could always change, but Tiki was unique and carried this team for several years.

    I said I never bash KG agian after 2 SB wins... While I dont think he is the best, the team has confidence in him and the players are the ones who dont execute... Sometimes he has me scratchin my head but nothing this year made me wonder more than TC electing to go for it on 4th down 3 times int he Atlanta game when FGs could have been made...

    When Eli plays like trash so does the rest of the team...

    To my point that we just don't have the horse to run a feature back set.

    To be honest, I kind of miss having the all-in-one guy.

    And I prefer the tandem/trio as it SHOULD extend their shelf life

    To add my 2 cents, I'm impartial so long as it's working, lol. Though, I must say I do miss having a running back that's a natural receiver like Tiki was. Hoping DW can be that guy moving forward.
