An explosive offense deserves an explosive running back. I don’t care how he looked playing with a scrub line in the preseason, Barber is super mediocre and he can’t be any worse. Time to get a HR hitter in there, stat.
Eagles D is insanely good against the run…should of gave Wilson a lot more carries tho. His speed and ability to get small and burst through the hole can work against an overly aggressive dline. A big back against the Eagles all game was not very smart.
Lol. Clearly the Eagles and Saints both saw something on film that scared them with Barber. Despite the arsenal of weapons outside, both teams have really sold out to stop the run. Eagles showed a ton of single-high coverage while the Saints played a ton of high-risk press-man.
The #s aren’t good, but the running game has made teams sacrifice something against the pass, and it’s working.
The one “chink” in our offense so far is that we haven’t had a complimentary running game. With our pass offense so effective, it’s disappointing for our run game to be so ineffective. Neither Barber or Rodgers has done anything really.
Its a valid question, to consider improving that area of our offense, despite what the board bullies think.
