You are confusing who has been talking about fumbles and who has not.
McKnight hasn't been "great" since high school. Everything we have heard about him since high school plus what we have seen with our own eyes in the first two years is the same thing. Six straight years of "great physical talent. Does not live up to potential".
LT was in there because he could pick up a blitz. No one could. How well you can run is secondary to that. You can't get on the field on third down if you can't read your assignment. Hopefully someone figures it out this year.
