    I picked up Powell in fantasy hoping the OC would realize what most of the posters already know.

    Watch any other team with their running backs. Guys who "pop" into the hole. Then watch our guy. No extra gear, no chance of breaking a run, no chance of getting anything that isn't there. Just run straight ahead and run into someone. Not over someone, just into them.

    And look at the difference in our cross-town rivals... Wilson in the doghouse, Bradshaw gets hurt, they plug in Brown and he runs wild (13 for 71, long of 23 with a TD).... makes me sick

    Same thing happened in 2007 during their SB run... one guy got hurt, they plugged in another and no difference...

    Either they draft much better RB depth or maybe the key is the OL

    Well greene got hurt, we plugged in Powell and he averaged 3 yards a carry. Its not like Powell was ripping off 20 yard runs.

    Part of it is they move on. If memory serves, they were others who were inserted, but if it doesn't work, they move on. Next man up. Greene sucks? Benched. Powell's 1 dimension, seeing you on 3rd downs. Next man up.


    And to be honest, Brown's being hanging around for years.

    5.5 ypc vs 3 ypc is a significant difference... and Brown did rip off a 20 yard run. I watched both games is there is no comparison to the way Brown and Powell ran... with that said I would take EITHER over Greene, which is a sad statement.. arguably their #3 better than our #1

    So maybe it is NOT all about the RB... maybe wither their OL, or more likely their multiple deep threats at WR opens up the running game...

    I think we would be pretty hard pressed to find a worse 1,2 and 3 running back corps in the entire NFL.

    Just sad really.

    This is a silly thread. Greene is our most physical runner and critical to our ball control offense. After he came out of the game in the 2nd quarter we weren't able to move the pile after moving them off the ball nicely the entire 1st quarter. In the second half we we're playing from behind and they mugged our receivers at the LOS and moved them off their routes/timing. They played physical defense. We are not yet an offense that can play from behind.

    You can find 10 or more teams with 2 RBs better than anyone on our roster... for example...

    Houston: Foster/Tate
    Carolina: Stewart/Williams
    Buffalo: Jackson/Spiller
    Chicago: Forte/Bush
    KC: Charles/Hillis
    Jacksonville: Jones-Drew/Jennings
    Minnesota: Peterson/Gerhart
    New Orleans: Ingram/Thomas/Sproles
    Pittsburgh: Redman/Mendenhall
    San Fran: Gore/Hunter

    Could also argue...
    St Louis: Jackson/Richardson
    Washington: Morris/Helu
    Giants: Bradshaw/Brown

    and there are likely others where we just don't see enough of the #2

    After watching the fins game yesterday, Lamar Miller looked really good. Hes super fast and quick to the hole. And, he was still around in the 4th round of this years draft.

    Miller and greene would have been a real nice tandem. Thunder and Lightning.

    Well we spent a 4th this year on a guy who was supposed to be able to improve our ground attack. Tebow is supposed to be a RB how may opt to throw once every 40 snaps.

    If his name had been anything other than Tebow, fans would have been pulling their hair out about why the guy who had 1 carry for 20 yards didn't get any more carries.

    We're better off with Powell starting. Greene is a one dimensional runner and cannot cut. Atleast Powell can run around the edges and cut in and out of blocks.

    The problem with Greene is that he is a fragile as a pane of glass yet he tries to run as if he were indestructible. The problem is not that he is a pane of glass. The problem lies in the fact that we have not recognized this fact and made changes accordingly.

    Also he cannot block worth a damn and he cannot catch out of the backfield. He is also slow and has no real change of direction. He is a straight ahead runner to gets himself dinged up every game. Literally every game.

    He is also the best runner we have on the team which is a sad commentary on the other two.
