Very well said. I cannot understand what the staff needs to see in order to figure out that we are a better offense with powell in teh game.
1. The threat of the RB actually running a pattern is there
2. He can actually pick up a blitz
3. He can cut and find a hole in the second level.
There is simply no way greene would have scored on the second TD run. He only know 1 direction, straight forward.
Powell is a very good 1 cut runner and also has the power to run between the tackles at 210 lbs. I really hope we feature him this thursday
