TrapAHolic Posted November 6, 2017 Share Posted November 6, 2017 (edited) We just paid Freeman a buttload of money this offseason, and imo he should be the main back when rushing. His vision, quickness, and lateral agility is so far beyond Tevin Coleman’s its ridiculous, i think we were all just enamored with his straight line speed. Tevin Coleman is not good at short yardage. He tries to hit the hole as fast as he can no matter what. He also has no ability to break tackles and as soon as he gets touched, he falls. I do understand he does need carries to keep the defense honest and not make it obvious that we’re going to throw the ball, but man he does not need to be in clutch short yardage situations unless its a designed pass to him. I have been feeling this way since last year, but that drive when Sark decided to run Teco on 2nd and 3rd down with a minimal gain then bringing Free out for 4th to run it up the gut again was the last straw for me. Not to mention the whole game whenever Freeman was in, the offense was moving. Some of it is on playcall and execution, but I do wonder how we would fair if we just stuck with Free til he got tired, not alternating backs each series. Thoughts?
