    For the life of me I couldnt figure out why they stuck with ineffective Sims so long last night..

  2. 2


    I thought same. Why on earth do they keep going to Sims. Almost like Rodgers was hurt in second half just quit going to him. 4 plus yards carry isn’t bad.

  3. 3


    We don’t really have many options at running back, frankly. Rodgers is reasonably effective as a small scat back but he can’t do what Martin does, shed tackles going through the middle. Peyton Barber? Not really much there, at least not yet.

    If we styled ourselves as a run-first offense, then a feature back and a third down back aren’t enough weapons to sustain the load through a full season, especially with Martin’s tendency to get nicked running between the tackles as he does.

    Put the Auburn kid in there. Big enough and strong enough. Won’t be any worse then Sims.

  5. 5


    Agree with both comments last two guys. Licht was dumb to not have another good option at RB.

    Also start the kid makes sense. There is not way he can be worse than Sims. Turnovers and 2 yards carry average are horrible.

    O line is good enough run blocking for Martin too so lots not have people start saying they are the problem. Lol.
