Old School bruising running back is what we need

Recommended Posts

We need a bowling ball back running the rock like Jamal Anderson, William Andrews, Michael Turner, not these small backs that cant bring the heat. Bryan Hill and Ollison are a start but keep adding bruisers. Get rid of these Ito Smith, Freeman ineffective third down backs, let's bring the wood to some people next year and just rotate the heavy hitters in and demolish people. Anyone coming out we can get late to add to Hill and Ollison? 6'2 225+

Najee Harris and other RB from Alabama both over 6'1 and 220 lbs. Maybe this is why Alabama ALWAYS wins? Let's dont recreate the wheel. You cant teach size. I am officially on the Najee Harris  draft band waggon. Pound the rock 2020. 

Just because he's big? When there are plenty of other big backs in the draft that are better than him.....smh. Playoff games bring out the geniuses.

We will need something different after you watch the next playoff game

 

I was just thinking the same thing. By the end of the playoffs there’s gonna be so many different things people are going to wanna copy. It almost feels like the playoffs is the only time People watch teams other than the Falcons

Hill is 6’1 220, and Ollison is 6’1 230.

What we need is a 3-down back with real speed and vision.  Something Hill and Ollison don’t have.

These guys are great for goal line, short yardage, and maybe eating up the clock late in games, but they are not #1 backs you can lean a season on.

Maybe Hill can play the Tevin Coleman role, but obviously he’s not near as fast, so he’s going to have to do it differently somehow.

We need a pre-injury SB season Freeman.  Unfortunately, the actual Devonta Freeman has fallen off a cliff and I don’t think he’s capable of climbing back up.

And Ito Smith is simply a question mark because he can’t stay healthy.

We HAVE to get a RB with speed. We don’t have one currently who can break off a run and take it to the house.  All our backs can currently get run down by good LB’s. They don’t stand a chance of beating DB’s in a sprinting match, and that’s not good.

This is the only time of year some of these guys watch anything other than the falcons.

Smh. Explains why the only thing people know are stats

Yeah. And they think every player on every other team is some kind of superstar besides ours. “Why can’t Matt do ‘x’?” 
“Why does Julio come off the field more than ‘x’?” 
All they see us perfect throws and highlights throughout the year.

If we’re putting in orders, I’d like to request an O scheme that gets facilitates our OL opening up some running lanes on a consistent basis.

Just like Gronk in New England. You cant teach size. Everyone has 5'11 200 pound backs, let's get the 6'3 230 guy and pound people. Gronk tore up the NFL because he was fast and BIG. Put a big bruiser in there with our receiving core and our offense will be nasty, if the front office cant draft linemen surely they can draft a big back.

First, finish building the OL.
