Just some more of you spewing crazy-*** dumb Mumbo-jumbo ****.

Free had over 1000 yards 2 years in a row and then had 865 yards while missing 2 games splitting carries with Coleman. TeCo only broke 800 yards splitting carries with Ito Smith. Free gave us double digit TDs each year as a starter but TeCo is our best back.

The RB from Memphis..I saw him. 1-cut, and gone. "Homerun TD capability". Not too much dancing either. He gets to the hole, and charges through it.

No more slow, indecisive, dancing RBs. Not too many extra steps.

Size? The FB can come-in, and get 3rd-and 1(s)

This guy is big-enough to block, and he will punish teams for doubling Julio and Ridley.

He and the other free haters still stewing over how his contract negotiations were (mis)handled by his side.

Either that, or they are ******* blind.

Jacobs absolutely has the talent, and I'm not being a homer as I'm a Georgia fan. He's also not going to go where I'd be comfortable with going ahead and getting him as I bet he ends up being a first round draft pick. The NFL absolutely loves pass catching backs today. If still there in the second, I'd take him, but I highly highly doubt he'll be there then, as it seems like the NFL is beginning to trend toward discounting raw stats and looking at overall ability.

Has Alvin Kamara 2.0 written all over him. 

Like I've talked about in discord (Braves discord, not a Falcons one), I'm for waiting and seeing if Devonta can bring it again with his ability due to the 2020 RB class. This year in the draft should be about trying to fix the LOS on offense and defense.

He reminds me way more of Ingram than Kamara

Not that I’m against looking at potential upgrades but I’m kinda good with the Freeman/Ito/Hill/Langford combo. 

Unpopular Opinion: We need someone to supplant Freeman. He's looking like a one year wonder to me. One great year and the others were just ok or injured. Personally, I haven't seen enough from him to believe that he's one of so many RBs who Shanahan made look better than he was.

And let's not talk about his pass protection.

1 yr wonder = 3 years 3000 rushing yards 30 TDs 2 playoff runs and avg 8 ypc in Superbowl.

Missed a few blocks, just a super critical one. Shanahan didnt make Freeman the most elusive back in the league at one point.

1000/year rushing is not especially impressive. It's sort of the baseline of what is expected to be just good.

 

To me, this looks like Shanahan:
