Re: A question of style: Evan, Roy or Tim?

I actually think Royster and Helu are pretty close style-wise when it comes down too it. Helu is obviously quicker and faster. Royster is better finding cutback lanes, catching the ball and I think his stamina is better. We need both to be successful.

Re: A question of style: Evan, Roy or Tim?

Why/how does Royster (who's never had over 20 carries) have more stamina?
How/why does Royster have better hands?

Couple of questions to understand your viewpoint:

When you say runs out of stem you mean over the course of a game or during a long run?

What do mean by 'taking hits'?
I don't want to give the image off that Royster can run anyone over, but he's not scared of lowering the shoulder, where I feel Helu, not scared, just doesn't do it. Goes down easier I suppose?

Runs out of steam on long runs. I think for the course of a game he's pretty consistent. It's like he can burst through the hole, but as the run goes on, he starts to slow down.

That self given comparison is gonna rub some of the older fellas the wrong way.
Nothing against the Morris, don't know him from Joe on the street.
And I understand feeling confident, and he might really feel he is similar to Walter Payton.
But, if you have an avenue, please pass this along from an idiot fan on an interent forum:
comparing yourself to Walter Payton is something you think not say
Believe me, I know it's a big comparison, but after watching tape on him, that's who he reminds me of, A LOT. Even after talking with him, he's a great guy like Walter, no cockiness, loves to talk and loves to work.

He had me talk to him on Sunday (Memorial Day Weekend keep in mind), because during the week he doesn't like to talk, he likes to stay focused on his work.

Don't get it as "I'm the next Walter Payton," he was just stating if he had to compare himself to an older player, it'd be Payton.

Then we really see them differently.
I don't see Helu as a back that goes down easily at all.
To my eye he's both willing and has demonstrated the ability to run through contact.
I thought this trait would be evident on film.*shrugs*

Hmmnn, didn't see this either.

But, to each their own, I like all 3 backs, if I had to pick a lead back I would go with Helu, I like Royster as a change of pace
And I think Hightower gets a bad rap based on his YPC more then his ability if you watch him on film the talent is there

Either way we got 3 good ones (provided THT is 100%)

Hey to each their own, but I'm not quite sure you realize how outlandish that comparison is to an entire generation of football fans...
SMH Walter Payton? Barry Sanders even blushed at being compared to Sweetness maybe I'm just getting old.....

I understand what you're saying, and maybe I'm just being blind, but I think he has a similar running style to what Payton had.

Its one thing for you to think it; its quite another:

these might play better:
he looks up to or patterns his style after or speaks with reverence about or tries to emulate etc...

3-G-Mafia, im not basing all my info on their style their Rookie year campaign. Im looking and remembering what I saw in college. Their style didnt develop in a one year time. Penn State is up the road and saw alot of Royster, Helu was maybe the best player on the field when they played Va Tech senior year. It would make sense that Shanny would get backs with similar styles to fit his zone system.

That might be what he meant but its not what you said that he said.
And comparing oneself to Walter Payton and admiring/emulating Walter Payton are worlds apart in meaning.

I was responding to what you said that he said.
If that isn't what he said, great I'll take you at your word.
But, the gensis of this conversation was:

If he didn't say the above then disregard my response to it.

Re: A question of style: Evan, Roy or Tim?

From what I gathered from the interview, Morris said he IS Walter Payton reincarnated. So we should be set from a RB standpoint this year.
