Is There Anyway Tevin Coleman Doesn't Start Game 1?


THE ICEMAN

I really like Freeman but Coleman is the best fit in this scheme you could get the only thing that could hold him back is his pocket protection and blitz pic up Rodgers showed just how valuable that was when the falcons beat the sea hawks in the wildcard game.

not to mention he's the 1st back we drafted thats not undersized and projects to be a 25 carrier back if needed and he's productive enough

reminds me of a faster version of demarco Murray whos a 1 cut guy but with coleman if he makes you miss hes probably going to take it to the house. Adrian Foster is another guy that has that type of style i just don't see freeman as a great fit vs coleman could he start sure but can he be as good and as productive as coleman can.

Are some high on Freeman? just look at them in college Coleman was on a completely different level and ran for over 2000 yards last year on a average team

If they both stay healthy it will be fun to watch. I'm good with a 1-2 combo punch or if one gets more game reps. In either case we have some decent backs.

If the scenario was to happen the way I prefer, then my hope is that Coleman beasts out and wins the job outright eventually.

I think this is an interesting question. In the Mike Smith era there would have been zero chance of Coleman starting. With Dan Quinn running the show I think the best player will start. I wouldn't be surprised either way. But my gut tells me Freeman will get the nod

Who really cares which one starts. They will both get plenty of reps.

I know I don't. I just hope whomever is doing their job better gets more carries. I personally like Freeman's attitude better, goes about his business and plans to show his worth on the field but hey TC can backup all the talking he's been doing then he'll deserve the starting nod.

Would imagine that Freeman starts because pass blocking takes a while for the rookie RBs to understand.

Don't care who starts- what I want is a solid one-two punch in the run game. Want whoever has the hot hand playing. Want both to be fresh at the end of a game. Wouldn't mind seeing a bunch of 2 RB sets if both prove they can block and catch.

i just don't see freeman as a productive 1000 yard back and more so a solid secondary back

were coleman as just a runner out of the backfeild is a nightmare if he can add the screen game and can split out at times becomes a game changer

defenses can't sit back on julio if coleman is gashing them for 10-15 yards a pop just look what smith did with very few touches last year. Coleman has elite speed like jones and smith so if one guy is out of position it could be a 50 yard run vs 5 yards freeman runs hard but just doesn't have that element the threat of the run evens plays more into as defense game plan for speed.

freeman doesn't have that element but does run hard if coleman stays healthy i just see him getting 60/70 percent of the carries it more than just production its the threat of his speed it makes the defenses game plan for him and take some pressure off jones if hardy ends up being anything better than HD and coleman is legit Jones may have an all time great year as well as ryan

who was more effective last year freeman or Smith? freeman had 473 yards on 95 touches and 2 TD Smith had 366 yards on 36 touches and 5 TD and he missed 6 games Coleman is a better all around back than smith and has the elite speed that makes smith so valuable

i like freeman as a solid backup but overall i really see now way he starts over Coleman its either going to be not being able to pick up the blitz or injuries.

maybe start is the a bad term i could see him starting for a game or two but colemen getting 60-70 percent of the carries

at the end of the day none of these guys are really proven backs so its still all up in the air

one has speed the other doesn't and that changes the game and how teams gameplan for that highly effects how they defend jones may actually force a lot of teams to play a zone and give up a lot of yards to not give up the big plays

Ball security, pass protection, catching passes, durability - the RB that excels in these areas will get the most snaps. We know all three backs are well suited for the blocking scheme with good vision and lateral agility. Coleman and Smith have the breakaway speed that Freeman lacks but he could still end up as the starter if he's the more complete player. This is the training camp battle that I'm most excited to see

Blocking and Injury free will be big for Coleman.

I think it will be tough for him alo as I think Freeman offers more versatility with his pass catching also.Pass Pro is big though that normally dictates who gets the nod.

Freeman has 4.5 speed. Same type of speed Shady McCoy has
