Maybe 20 year's ago. Today with teams passing so much more than running a RB has to pass block and run routes as often as run with the ball.

hightower is better overall factoring pass pro.

btw, morris didn't have a good night. he had 2 good runs, but ended up with 10 rushes for 34 yards (3.4ypc) AND he whiffed on major wright, which resulted directly in the griffin fumble. You can't have one 20 yard run, 8 0-1 yarders and a sack fumble in 10 plays. that's just not getting it done.

I'd take hightower over that any day.

I suggest you re-watch the game.

We have a rookie QB, we better not be adopting the Tom Brady/Peyton Manning style of offense.

why? am i wrong? nfl.com doesn't seem to think so, and here's someone else who found the missed assignment and a quote where he admits he f'd up:

Morris said, “he got me there,” referring to how the veteran threw him off.
so, uh, what exactly did I miss or misrepresent that would be worth watching that again?

Only the Broncos, Texans, 49ers and Jaguars ran more than they threw. It's just not a running league any more.

Do you think practice is good enough for Rex to get used to throwing to Garcon, Morgan, Paul, etc? Agreed about getting RG3 and Cousins as much reps as possible, just thinking how different playing time is.

Re: 2012 53 man Roster predictions

I thought Morris did fine...the blocking was absolutely horrible...the Bears shut down everything after they figured out we were run first with RG3...cant blame that on morris...sure he missed a block, but kids in college don't do a lot of pass blocking...that is expected

Frankly, I think you are quite alone in worrying about how many reps Rex gets at this point.

Who really gives a crap?..if Grossman ends up in a game...he will just close his eyes and throw will full confidence and authority to wherever he feels like it. It doesn't really matter where the receivers or defenders are anyways. Why worry about giving him reps..it wont change a thing!

Three of those teams made the playoffs. One is a contender for the AFC this year with a healthy Matt Schaub. The 9ers were two muffed punts away from the Super Bowl. Running isn't all bad. I would take that over 5-11.

Re: 2012 53 man Roster predictions

Would rather see cousins or the guy SS likes (Crompton?) play in a game before Grossman again.

Re: 2012 53 man Roster predictions

my point wasn't that morris is horrible, just that 3.4ypc and poor pass pro aren't going to be enough to unseat hightower as things currently stand. the OL is an issue, just like it was last year.

as far as running teams making the playoffs, the majority of playoff teams weren't run first, and the SB winner wasn't either, so that's not exactly an automatic qualifier.

Grossman needs to see the field like I need another beer. We both want to but no one else thinks we have done anything to deserve it yet.
