  • Felix is a fine back. For whatever reason, the blocking for him is **** on most of his plays. There are guys in the backfield. It's probably Garrett calling specific plays for Felix that arent working. He needs more touches. The handling of the running game is horrid, already this season.

    Felix can be a pro bowl type back, imo. He just doesnt get the ball enough. Not even close. We're talking about a guy who has averaged 6.5 yards per carry in his first two years. 15 carries in the first two games? Get him the god damn ball.

    Thanks BoneKrusher^

      Felix has lost all burst. If you can't see that, then you're in denial.

      He's broken right now. Choice should be getting more chances to run.

        He hasnt lost it all...I agree he does look a little slower. But honestly...he has 15 carries on the year. He's not getting touches to even do anything with it.

        Thanks BoneKrusher^

          Goes both ways... he does nothing when he gets it.

          Also, AOA doesn't impress me at all... anyone else feel that way? I see no speed, no wiggle, no courage... nothing really. Since Felix is so fresh, I'd like to see him back there instead... to prove he still has "it".

          • Dez needs to start. Sure Roy played decent besides the fumble, but he just doesn't cut it. Bring him in for third downs, spreadng it out, and a jump ball. But everytime dez is targeted, he performs.

            On the bright side.. I don't think minnesota will be as hard of a game as we thought.

            Well actually, looking at the schedule.. being 0-2 sucks, but if we can pull off the texans, and regroup in the bye, we could still do pretty well.

            • Nah. I like AOA back there. Looked like he was having some problems adjusting to the playing surface. He was falling all over himself. He does have some nice burst.

              And half the time Felix gets the ball, he's met in the backfield. And that is not on him at all. Whatever Garrett is calling for him, aint working. They dont block on most of his runs. Take another gander, if you can. It's ridiculous. And yeah, we need to throw out that delayed draw, that doesnt work at all anymore. Just like that razor back garbage.

              Thanks BoneKrusher^

                Dez basically does start. He played more snaps than Roy did today. There were tons of two WR sets with just Miles and Dez.

                Roy was actually playing well, until Paul jinxed it. :P

                It was nice to see Hurd and Ogletree get in a little bit...but neither saw any targets. I was yelling on one play imparticular, where Hurd was wide ass open about 20 yards down field and Tony didnt even look that way. :(

                  Your on crack, boy. Dez didn't play that much today.

                  • As for more on AOA or kick return in general...we seriously have one of the worst blocking units, I've seen in the league. Same as last year, there is a guy free and ready to tackle our return man at about the 8 yard line. We're lucky to even get it past the 20 on most returns.

                    Thanks BoneKrusher^

                      He played a lot. Roy was on the sidelines a whole lot. Roy would catch a pass and then run to the sidelines. Dez and Miles were out there together a bunch of times.

                      Dez plays more than Roy already.

                      Thanks BoneKrusher^

                        • Well, Nick Folk just nailed a 49 yder, that might just sting more then anything else going on right now with this team honestly. If we don't miss those FG's then it is a completely different game at the end of those games and changes the complex. Ugh.


                          Also there is something wrong with Felix, calling him a pro bowl type back is just giving him WAY too much credit and at some point you need to have a dude show up on the field instead of pumping him up into something he's never proved, ever. There still is plenty of time for him to get much better but he's nowhere near the same, he would have turned plenty of those runs into TD's last few years.


                          Saying he can be a pro bowl back is just ridiculous MOTH, it has no merit. We can't keep blaming everything he doesn't do on Garrett, offensive line, no touches, not staying healthy, when it is ever gonna be his fault? Or is it ALWAYS gonna fall on someone else? Why does he get a free pass for everything?

                          • uhhhh....he's averaged 6.5 yards per carry in his first two years. There is certainly some merit, there.

                            You want him to show up on the field? How about giving him the ball?

                            And yes...please watch the game again, if you dont want to blame some of this on Garrett. How do you expect him to go anywhere when he is being hit as soon as he touches the ball?

                            He doesnt get a free pass. If the guy got 15-20 carries and sucked...I'd say so, no problem. He doesnt get the ball.

                            Thanks BoneKrusher^

                            • The problem is this year, not his first two years, obviously were looking at a potential problem with the weight gain. I'm not arguing what he was in his first two years.


                              We also didn't have to give him the ball very much the first two seasons for him to show up in a big play here and there did we? It would be nice, but he was still busting out big plays with very few carries most weeks.


                              And I didn't say I don't want to blame anything on Garrett, or that he deserves no blame because he does, my problem is that your putting everything off of Felix and onto the line, Garrett, touches, play-calling, and a number of other things and not giving him any blame for not looking like the same explosive RB he was before.

                              • Felix doesnt deserve much blame until he actually gets the ball. You want to write him off after 15 carries?

                                And our line has regressed from last year, once again...save LT. The run blocking has not been impressive at all.

                                The O-Line makes the running game go...Felix isnt even getting the blocking to get to the 2nd level.

                                Thanks BoneKrusher^
