Damn. how many RB's does one team need?

Recommended Posts

I guess you can't have enough training camp fodder at RB.  This guy played at Pitt and was originally signed by the Browns.  At best he's fighting for a spot on the practice squad.

Seems like the team is actually going to feature the running game instead of just talk about.  They need a stable of backs to make it through the season.

I like having lots of RBs in training camp. First of all they're really only going in with two...one if Gio is "gone". Plus RB is one of those positions where you can find Pro Bowlers off the scrap heap so it's a good chance to take. Furthermore we'll need a lot for training camp. I'm fine if Mixon gets like five touches in all of August.

Keeping Mixon fresh for the season is critical, let these young guys get some snaps and take the hits in training camp/preseason.

I hope Mixon doesn't run the ball a single time in the Pre-season. There's no need.

 

He doesn't need practice reps where he can be injured on plays that don't even count.

Ehh..  New offense, new coaches.. Everyone needs reps.  

 

4 preseason games is at least 2 too many.  One home & away would cover everybody.  Let the teams set up more scrims if they want, we've done that before or combined camps for a week before the game.

 

Marvin ran a 10ply-soft camp last year and half the team got owies.   Coincidence?

Should say new defense, too.   At least we know where to go with the the ball on offense.   Teryl Austin :Why-min:

 

Yeah 4 RB's sounds about right if there's no FB.
