Guest BasketBull. Posted June 25, 2008 Share Posted June 25, 2008 1) Ford is big but he needs that initial gap and then he forces his way in there, carrying the pile along. His weakness: He likes to cough up the ball. And I think he doesn't block that well.2) Taylor has that quick burst and hits the hole pretty fast. I'd like to see him get more carries. But he was so new to the system last year, and then he got hurt. He also coughs up the ball.3) BBQ is the man. Do you remember the block during the Pitt game where the took out the blitzing DB and allowed Matt to throw a 39-yarder to Amari (I think it was Amari)? BBQ blocks very well, and holds on to the ball. However, he doesn't put fear into the defense and can't really get the running game going by himself (just my take, of course).We really need to establish the run if we are to win the Big East, and it's all with that first and 10. If we can't get 5 yards, it's really going to hurt us as the season goes on.Pitt was a fine example of our need for a running game. We needed to run out the clock, but just couldn't get that first-down on the ground and ended up punting quite a bit. Thank goodness our defense came through in a big way. Q: Will we see the 3-headed RB, again? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
