moreno plays with an energy that the other rbs on georgia's roster don't and it affected the attitude and play of the o-line.

like moreno, norwood is an impact player. i still question norwood's durability, but o-line may not be the big problem everybody is trying to make it out to be. this team doesn't need to spend a first round pick on a qb or a o-lineman.

we have talent through free agency and through the draft.

we need a franchise rb!

vick's presence changes the game. knowshown moreno changes the game. and norwood changes the game.

moreno ran the ball 33 times and the team fed off his energy. the maligned georgia o-line looked totally different with moreno getting the majority of the carries.

dunn shouldn't be playing period. the excuses about his blocking isn't enough to keep him in the lineup. petrino always said the team needed a spark, well making norwood the starter for the remainder of the season and employing ovie/pinner in more situations give the falcons the best chance of having a more explosive, consistent rush offense.

dunn doesn't provide that spark nor make his teammates on the o-line play better or fight for him..the moreno played against florida inspired the team.. in much the same way vick did ..

get a better rb, and your o-line will play better..

based on what we have, i agree.....norwood should start and get more carries, however, he is not the every down inside/outside back like moreno. moreno is more like marion barber with the same kind of heart.

we need someone more like that in the future.

norwood couldn't make the o line look better because he sucks at picking up the blitz. nfl matchup showed some plays from the atl-nyg game on this mornings show and actually focused on the blocking assignments, and not only did norwood not pick up the right player on the blitz, he didn't even scan half of the area the was supposed to be focusing on!! if you want to say he needs more touches i would agree but there is a reason he's not staying in the game on a lot of passing downs. apparently norwwod being in the game doesn't spark the o line either, becuase they know when they can't pick up guys norwood sure as **** isn't. if we get a better o line the rb play will be better, that's football 101.

football 101 for the rb is too run the football effectively, and this team has not done it. the falcons are 1-6 with dunn getting the majority of the carries.

norwood is not perfect, but you act like dunn hasn't missed a block. he's small, but he has been trucked and given up sacks over the years which has led to vick being injured or put out of the game , but the thing about dunn is that he isn't providing no impact running plays!

worst case scenario has happened. our qbs are still getting sacked with dunn in the game. it's time to move on past dunn.. start norwood. use pinner. use ovie more.

the more norwood plays, the better he will get in terms of reading the defense better and blocking better. but six carries isn't cutting it. the falcons need to change their strategy in the way they are using norwood. however hindering norwood's development at the expense of making dunn feel better is counterproductive and hurts the team overall.

adrian peterson is terrible in pass protection. he gets plenty of snaps.

college defences (even florida) are vastly diffrent than in the nfl. players are twice as big. twice as fast and three times as mean.

just beacuse it works in the ncaa dosen't mean it will work in the nfl.

also norwood is horrible when pass blocking. you'd basiclly commit yourself to the run or the short passes.

do you think that norwood is as good as peterson?do you believe in the tooth fairy?

peterson is relative to our norwood in that both players give their team a better chance to win then their counterparts on the field.

do you believe in logic? i know that was a tough one to think about.
