Doesn't matter who is out there, our run blocking sucks.  And it's not like Ito is some world beater either.  He is ok

Stop with the excuses , he still had holes

Yeah, I don't get it either. Smith had looked so much better, but Freeman keeps getting the carries.  I'm so done with this coaching staff this year & it's only 4 games.

He scored a td. Who else did?

Excuses, I'm not making any excuses, you need to re read my post.  I know Freeman is shot and has been for years.  I wished we moved on from him this year, cap penalties be dammed.  He is just dead weight and a reminder of that horrible block in the SB.

I knew in 2017 it was a mistake paying Free. $9 million we are paying Free this year, yet we can't line up on 3rd or 4th and 1 and pick up a first. That's a collosal waste. Get rid of Free.

O wow, a goal line touch down, I should be impressed.  Stop over rating Ito because Freeman sucks.   Ito is decent, but not a starting caliber running back.  He is a perfect running back by committee player.

I remember Freeman was destroying opposing teams with the wheel routes that Shanny schemed. Now he's just juking sideways instead of getting critical yards. Ito is misused.

Free just doesn't look the same. He can't make anyone miss which was a big part of his game before. He also doesn't seem as physical as before. It's def time to move on from him

Ito might not be the best RB in the league, but he's looked better than Freeman &is way more affordable. I say we move on from Freeman next year, when I believe they can without taking a big cap hit. But this year they need to utilize Ito more, to see if they have or need to draft another for next year.

You guys are crazy, our line is trash! No running back is gonna do well with this line. If this was a Free problem then Ito would be lighting it up, which he isn't.

Free is too weak to break arm tackles and too slow to get to the many holes that are open. He can't create yards for himself anymore. Stick a fork in him he's done.

I remember a convo a few of us had a few years ago,  when Devonta freeman loses his shiftiness and speed he will be average

You’re complaining about 14 carries. Ryan threw the ball 50 times. The offense needs more balance. Koetter can’t figure that out.

It was probably around the first time we played the Eagles where Coleman balled out and Freeman folded. I knew right there that Free was done but these guys didn't want to hear it. So I just had to sit back and let them watch for themselves.

Why are people referencing the oline when comparing Freeman and Ito.  They run behind the SAME Oline, and ITO consistently looks better doing it.  If I was coach, I would make Ito Smith the starter.

Cant have balance when we are down 2 TD's the entirety of the 2nd half.

This whole team is a complete mess and yet this is the narrative that is highlighted week in and week out. I hope that they do throw Ito's a** out there as a starter next week just so ya'll can stfu. The starting rb position is not going to make a difference with this team at this point. Do you all even see how this team is playing?!?

Freeman had a 2.5 ypc ......... so Ryan had to throw it
