Coach_Petrino Posted October 14, 2014 Share Posted October 14, 2014 Here are the reasons why Antone needs to get the most snaps of all our RBs:(1) He can slow down the pass rush if we use him more on flairs and screens. This will help our stuggling O-Line, and will also potentially give more time for Ryan to find Julio and Roddy.(2) Many of his huge plays are receptions, and we need more receiving weapons out there with HD still injured. He catches the ball well and is the biggest scoring threat on the team once he catches it.(3) Guys like Toiletlo are getting way too many looks. Why are we throwing to a player like that when we could be going to Antone instead?We are 2-4, and Mike Smith even said we need to make some dramatic changes. This one could at least give the offense a shot in the arm. Antone makes huge plays, and does so reliably. You can shrug off the first few as a fluke, but at this point it is a major pattern and cannot be ignored. None of the other RBs have made even one such play all year. They've been solid but not game changing. We need max game changers out there.I also admit I was wrong in originally thinking we should keep Antone limited. I'm sorry for doubting you Antone.
