It took how long to finally use McKnight as a receiver out of the backfield.
That 19 yard gain he got is there all day. I know he dropped that swing pass but honestly he's the biggest mismatch out there for our offense. No linebacker can cover him 1 on 1 on the outside and if you put a safety on him it opens things up for Keller and Kerley. Powell had a solid game as well but we should be using McKnight a lot more in that Marshall Faulk/LT role. I thought this is what we were doing anyway. Also I thought Joe blocked well yesterday when he was in pass protection. I think its about time we see McKnight get more plays as a RB. He's the most explosive back we have. That near 70 yard run he had this year was the longest we've had in 3 years. We desperately need that threat from the backfield.
Also after Powell's performance I'm hoping either Greene gets less touches or loses his starting job. He's the 3rd best back on our roster.
