Running games been great and it will continue to be regardless of starter.

Well, take that focus to a QB thread lol

Our starting RB has averaged a paltry 2.9 and 3.0 ypc against Dallas and the Rams respectively. Notwithstanding the QB's pedestrian numbers yesterday, the question has been raised.....Who should be the starting RB, Hightower, Torian or Helu?

poll mods??

ps sorry I didn't see the poll underway

Re: The Running Game

I voted Torain. Stick with the hot hand. I'm just not buying that Hightower was "banged" up. He showed no signs of being "banged up" (running and pass blocking). Shanahan's making an excuse as to why Hightower's been underachieving. He's done this before w/ Mcnabb. Torain had 135 yards, w/ the O-line opening the same holes yesterday, that Hightower couldn't hit consistently the last 3 weeks. Even when Hightower's been healthy, he just hasn't been effective. It's been 2 or 3 yards with him. On the flipside,Torain and Helu have gained 5,6,7 yards on the same stretch play. If we ran Torain against Dallas, we might've won that game. Torain should get most of the carries Wk 6, with Hightower coming in on pass blocking situations.

Bottom Line:
I just don't buy that Hightower's banged up. He's just been ineffective RUNNING the ball. Banged up or not.

He was wearing some sort of brace or extra padding for his left upper arm.

Re: The Running Game

I think everyone (including myself) got caught up in the pre season stuff and forgot just how good Torain can be. The guy was a beast last year. I'm not sure how long the guy's going to last running the way he does but if healthy he's our best back. It takes several guys the bring him down.

Re: The Running Game

All I have to say about the upcoming Eagles game is this


Or is it diesel-hybrid in today's day and age?

Of course. 32 lines to choose from.

I don't think Hightower can do "power rushing" the way Torrain can.

Oh yeah...after 4 games have you guys notices the dramatic improvement in the interior line?...particularly at Center?

Have you guys seen the Center pushed back 5-10 times a game this year?
The Skins addressed one of our greatest weaknesses and boy...what a difference!
yeah, I still don't think our backup OL or brown are all that great though.

I still think we need a #1 QB, 3 OL (ALL of our backups are trash from what I know/have seen), a better #1 CB, and another ILB (for when fletcher finally quits). I like where we're at, though hasslebeck or luck or cam would look pretty nice in a skins jersey right now... no world beaters at WR, but we're good enough, have great depth, and no one's being paid obscenely, which tends to happen at WR.
