Is there any running back on our roster besides Freeman that you trust to block for Matt Ryan when needed?


Recommended Posts

If we do keep Freeman this will probably be the biggest reason why. I'm not sure if I trust any of our other running backs to block for Matt Ryan when needed consistently. Not that Freeman is great at it but he's good enough I guess you could say. Is there any running back on our current roster besides Freeman that you guys trust to block (pick up the blitz) when called upon?

I personally can’t remember a more critical whiff on a blitz pick up than Freeman’s nonexistent one in the SB. I’d pick anyone else over him.

That after being a big distraction Super Bowl week when his agent was asking for a big contract.

Yall are idiots for claiming Free is a bad blocker. He's more than capable of pass pro at RB. One play doesn't create a player.

Beyond that, Ito was fine. Hill was decent this year. Barner only because he's a vet, but not much beyond that. 

Nah man, here in TATF-ville, 1 play defines the entire value of a player for their career.

Have a seat and let me tell you about the time Jake Matthews held...

I don’t know how good Free is at blocking overall, but you are absolutely right. Fans always want to indict a player for one bad play.  
 

like condemning 5 time pro bowler Keith Brooking for a bad play in a critical 3rd and 16 situation. No one is arguing they aren’t big mistakes but their careers are not defined by those single plays.

Qadree had the highest PFF pass blocking rating among all our backs and was 15th in the league, albeit on a limited/non-qualifying number of snaps.

This is a clear troll thread. 

Be like someone making a thread titled 

"Who do you trust to catch and interception besides Trufant/Neal?"

"Who do you trust to catch a wide open TD besides Julio?"

Etc
