How good do you think Brian Hill will become?

Brian Hill will be our #3 RB barring injury for week 1. He will the short yardage back, probably end the year with about 400 yards total now that he can catch the ball. I could see him stealing 4 or 5 TD's away from Free and Ito though.

God I hope not

I certainly would not bet on it...nor would I be surprised if it happens

No way he averages 4.9 ypc with over 50 carries. That's better than Freeman has ever had besides last year but he didn't reach 50 carries. 

This is what athell and hash are talking about. Y'all really act like Hill is a top tier RB.

It’s easier for a #2 or #3 to get higher YAC cause defenses probably expect a pass if Free is out and Hill is on.

This was with our backup oline which sucked and had to play against Denver starters early on

I'm not sure that is true, because if he's in, the game is probably over.  In most cases, we'll be ahead trying to run out the clock, which would mean the opposing team would be 8 in the box.

Denver's starters didnt play at all. What are you talking about? And he didn't do anything worthy of in a short yardage situation. I wanna see 3rd and 1, goal line, this doesn't help your cause.

You don’t think?  I didn’t look it up, but it makes sense.  If Free is taking a one play breather, I would think pass more likely than run.  But again, it’s simply a guess

Obv not all of the starters...the commentators in the first couple drives were talking about Denver having players that played a lot last year in the game. They were only referring to the dline. Hill pushed the chains multiple times and got a TD in a goal line situation

I think I'm glad you're not a coach in the NFL. That would get exposed quick.

He got a TD on a pass, and they had no starters playing dude. 

It was a bunch of backups.

Ok, so what does impress you in a pre-season game?

If Hill didn’t impress because it’s pre season vs 2nd teamers; 

And Ollison disappointed against 2nd teamers;

It begs the question: what would impress you in these games?

It was worse than 2nd team.

And I was happy Hill showed he can follow his blocks but that's all he showed. No moves. No power besides that penalty.

John impressed because he had a good day against bad players so that tells me he's at least better than them. Now I wanna see him do it against good players.

Not trying to crown a guy after one game.

Yes, John was impressive for sure.  Benkert, Cominsky & Hill were the standouts from the 1st game.  Kudos to them, let’s just see if it continues.  That’s all anybody is saying

Been saying a lot more than that about Hill. Someone even predicted he'd average 4.9ypc this year. Some have predicted he'd be the #1 by the end of the year. Some have predicted he is #2 right now.

I certainly have not.  Most I’ve said is Hill is in a battle to win RB #2

Like the idea of a bigger back like Hill and the Kid out of Pitt. but Ito looked good last year too...man it will be a tough call for that #2 spot

Hill will have his chance to really shine when Freeman gets a concussion by week 12. 

I'm hoping he will already have had his concussion and gone through concussion protocol and be back ready to go by week 12. The home stretch is when we're going to need him most.

As for Hill, I think 850 yards and 4 TD's is probably realistic.

Rushing and receiving or?
