Where's the running game?

We may've let the shift RB go in Sheets, but there are always guys available like that every off-season.

Gore's the very definition of a power back.

There's a kid named Noel Devine who would be available in round 4 or 5. Runs a 4.31 and reminds me of Sproles. He'd be a great addition to the team and would be a nice change of pace back.

Coffee's not that guy--he has the same style as Gore. Not sure if M-Rob is that guy either.

MRob needs... no HAS to be converted to a FB. That guy is ALWAYS lookin to hit somebody. The very definition of a FB.

Is that so hard to understand? I been sayin that since his 2nd season when Norris was let go.

If he's not made a FB then Scott ain't doin his yob. Cause I believe that the man could be a stalwart in that position for years to come.

~Ceadder

Agreed. MRob, or Captain Crunch as I like to call him, could really present problems for the opposition.

I don't think we will be using a FB very much anymore.

Mike Robinson a FB, Nooo! Did you see him flopping on the ground in pain against the Packs And he didn't really hit anyone, just ran into a bigger guy. A running back OK, but a FB please no, for his own safety and health.

...yeah, about that. I just got off the phone with the OLine's representative.

He says they refuse to push the Opposing Defense off the LoS and open holes for Frank until Scott pulls his head out of his butt and quits bringing cheap ineffective FA players to play the toughest positions to play.

So it looks like Frank better make the most of his touches in the Spread formation. It's going to be a LONG time.

~Ceadder

Hahahaha. Seriously though, subtract 3 frank gore runs and he is averaging 2 yds a pop.

Yes I saw that and the impact was bigger than you claim it to be. And that is ONCE in how many games? Don't kid yourself. MRob is more FB than RB.

But hey you can continue to sleep on him if you wish. Name one time that he's shied away from contact and another time that he hit someone bigger and was "flopping around". You can't cause it ain't happened.

I expect more balance in the future depending on the opponent.

He needs to gain about 20 pounds before they throw him in there against LBs who are 20 pounds heavier than him. He may be able to knock out Safeties and Gunners but being 226 or so and repeatedly hitting guys who are 240 takes its toll.

A whopping 52 yards all game. This has been worrisome. It had slowly disappeared the last few games. I understand they are going spread more and the shotgun is not Gore's forte, but they need to get that going especially when teams start gaming for our emerging passing game.

Maybe it's unstoppable

who cares.. we won

I'm not disputing that. And I understand that he needs to put on some El Bees but it's not imposible and he has the frame to handle the weight.

The coaches need to set an offseason for Robinson to make this transition. I do agree, he would make for a very strong and versatile FB.
