What about on third and short or fourth and short against the Panthers??

Even Earl Campbell,  William Andrews,  Walter Payton, and other hall of fame backs all had games where they were stuffed...****, look at Christian Okoye!

Why the aggressive response because he says we need a big back?  We do we lose out a lot of times on 3rd and 2 and 3rd and 1 now that can be for a variety of reasons but I would have went Ballage. But now we have us an Ito who I think will be good But not having a 5th I was hoping we would go another way.

My response was not meant to be taken in an aggressive manner.  I was simply saying that even the elite backs all have games or plays where they couldn't get the job done. It isn't all on his shoulders, as the offensive line have their part to play as well. Does that make sense?

It is a matter of an object will remain at force until it meets with a equal or more force to slow it down. 205 let's get real. A Turner, Anderson, or Riggs type back. Is what we need

I hear what you are saying...and I am not opposed to the idea of a big bruising back. I just tend to look at things collectively as a team effort rather than an individual performance.

So Free is now on their level in terms of power? Lol.

Yeah they don't get it.  5'9 RB vs 6'3+ DTs and LBers. 

Freeman is not a power back, PERIOD!  Now the haters will think that I'm saying Freeman is a cupcake, which is not true, as he does have some pop but isn't a power back like Gurley, or Zeke.

And yet you got guys like Gurley, L Bell, D Henry, D Murray, Zeke, D Johnson that throws a wrench into that logic. 

I wouldn't classify Gurley, Bell, Zeke and Johnson as power backs.  Power backs are one gap down hill runners, one dimensional runners.

League is moving to more spread offenses and Ito fits the bill as a back you can split out wide like a typical wideout and get a mis match.

Last two years Falcons have been top offense in 3rd and short, pretty bad in 3rd and long situations. Calvin Ridley should help on 3rd and long situations.
