I always thought Alfmo was a better inside runner anyway. Let Helu (or another small speedy back) take those outside toss plays. Alfmo is a bruiser he needs to keep the majority of his plays north-south.

Re: 2013 PFF Offensive Line Rankings

Alfmo is just a good runner. Is he going to sprint away from people on a toss play? Nope.

But he is going to get bunches of yards on a well blocked play, inside or outside, because of his vision and power. For the same reason, he gets yards - inside or outside - that no other back on the team gets when the blocking breaks down. In addition, he is much better about setting up would-be tacklers for his blockers than anyone else on the team. Helu sometimes has vision problems getting what exists. I am not saying Helu is a bad and he has improved from year 1 to now. From the beginning, however, Alfmo has had as good or better vision than Helu has now. (To be clear, I LIKE Helu as the complimentary back - he does have the extra gear Alfmo doesn't).

Let Alfmo exploit the field ... he can run inside or outside for substantial yards. His vision and cut-back ability make him a threat for "chunk" runs everytime he goes outside (Dallas, December, 2012 anyone?). If he is reduced to a predictable inside runner, it is an unnecessary limitation that would make him less effective overall.

Just don't give Alfmo the ball at the goal line. Well at least not if JR has him on his fantasy team!

Re: 2013 PFF Offensive Line Rankings

We'll I didn't mean as a straight inside banger. I meant that his lack of elite speed might be mitigated more on inside zone plays where getting outside quickly to make a cut back isn't necessary. Alfs obviously a top tier type back in any type of system where he gets presented with cut backs that he can exploit with his vision and ability to cut and go.

I'd just like to see Helu break an arm tackle. He can shift and make people miss, but the second someone has a hand on him, he goes down like a ton of bricks.
