How much bigger then Sellers must they be? If he's not the proto typical power running back then how much bigger must they be? AH's size? I'm not calling you out but I think the team could find a way to utilize their talents better. To only use Seller for blocking and catching passes out of the back field is rediculous.

Power back: Seller
Regular back: Portis
Speed back: I still think we should have let Rock go especially since Thomas is doing the same job just as well and kept Dorsey or Alridge. With no threat to take the ball outside the tackles teams are loading up on us.

Yes! Fridge, the Sequel.

The easy solution is to score long TDs before we get into the Red Zone... problem solved

Sellers isn't a ball carrier, see last year's goalline fumble. There's a reason teams have guys like Sellers and Lorenzo Neal at FB, but rarely let them carry the ball.

I wouldn't have minded letting Rock go and working with Dorsey or Aldridge, but ball security was an issue with one, I think injury with the other. To your point though, it would be nice to have a complimentary speed back.

and you are correct. If we find ourselves in the red zone, take the delay of game back us up to create more space and pass into the endzone.

Well we either use his size to our advantage maybe have him block for Cooley or cut someone to bring in a bigger back. I might have forgotten but I thought Alridge only fumbled once. I really don't have an issue with that if it was only once considering Portis, Betts, and Rock have fumbled before also. Should we cut them due to fumbling issues? No. Sooner or later everyone will make a mistake. As some of you have mentioned Sellers dropped one, but had a defender been closer I could have seen it getting intercepted. Hell, JC fumbled last game maybe he should be cut cause he's a risk. JK.

I think it was more of a numbers game and they liked what they had in Mason. but we still need the speed back.

Looks like we got our speed-back...back (check out the Aldridge thread)
