Yea can definitely see him sharing reps with dmc or reece or whoever they decide to stick with at rb...and i also agree with alot of you on the idea of using him as a hybrid fb/rb/maybe even te/wr on occasion to keep defenses off balance....hope somebody in our coaching staff realizes what us fans are seeing
I'm not upset that they're essentially over-achieving scrubs. I AM upset that Knapp didn't run the ball a whole lot more against Cleveland, since they were actually getting results.
Arian Foster was an undrafted RB, btw. RB is easily the most fickle position in the game -- first rounders fail and undrafted players succeed.
Well it's Stewart so I don't know who Stuart is
It doesn't matter we don't stick to the run long enough for him to make an impact. Knapp needs replaced since when does being down by 10 mean abandon the run. Especially when you're finally getting results. He never should've been brought back and just may be the reason Allen doesn't succeed in Oakland.
Exactly why I say Allen doesnt know wtf he is doing. Knapp is hired after RM says oline. Is our strength we change that.
Jeremy Stewart has come in at the right time for sure. I know he hasn't played much but still 25 Att 101 yard in 4 games for 4.0 a carry isn't too bad for a back up.
We could line up with a 2-TE I-formation with Moore (Ausberry at TE2, Reece at FB, RB) split out wide then shift to a single back, 3WR shotgun with Ausberry on the outside and Reece in the slot, then you could throw a screen to the RB with a TE and FB already out to block or a bubble screen to Moore with a FB already in the slot ready to block.
Not to hijack, but I can't understand why they're not running more. The Raiders have gained 305 on 66 carries in the pas three weeks - in that same stretch, Palmer has thrown 128 times.
Knapp needs to commit to the running game. Line 'em up and run at 'em 30 or 40 times; keep the offense on the field and keep the defense on the sidelines - where they belong.
^^^me too... God I hope we bring in a new OC. Really....in not super pissed at knapp, but my lord Reece is an unreal utility talent.
^ sad but true lol
