I would love Baker to have a bigger role. He's more in the mold of a Richie Anderson and he will help the offense alot. Connor lost his job when he couldn't pick up the short yardage we needed against the Giants. Its no coincidence that when T-Rich retired our run game took a hit. Connor is an average run blocker and no threat at all to defenses.
Richie Anderson was one of our best players, Connor nowhere near his level in any way other than wearing a Jets jersey. Other than the fumble in Denver, he was probably the best FB we had out of the backfield, etc..
Defend what? Why are you dragging my name into a post with another poster?
Let me guess, looking for more confrontation? This is now the 3rd thread you're calling me out unprovoked. Again, you were asked to knock it off. A bannable offense.

You need a timeout, you're so pent up with venom with anything I say, you can't even comprehend what I write.
Ryan has/had no business picking an offensive player. My responding to you or using your name in this thread is an ongoing exercise to point out that all you do is defend Ryan. So what if Ryan thought that he blows people up? That's not his job. He's not a GM and he's not qualified to evaluate college players on the offensive side of the ball. You incorporated Coples into the argument for what reason? We are talking about a FB. You were trying to defend Ryan's choice of Connor by pointing out his choice of Coples. Totally irrelevant. Apples and oranges.
i'm not a fan of conner, and would rather he just got cut...
but to be fair, per PFF, last year he was the 6th rated FB in the NFL. last year he had two bad games in pass blocking, zero really good. and in run blocking, he had four really good games, and zero bad games.
