He shouldn't....save them for the regular season. I don't wanna risk any of our 1's.
On that note... I really hope we don't see as much of Dixon. We know he can run and yeah he could definately use the reps... but I think this would be a good game to get Robinson some extensive playing time and put in Caulcrick as our RB for the later quarters.
The kid needs all the reps he can get.
true, and we all know what mrob cant do. so i dont see why we cant see dixon get a few reps against real competition to see if he can run against opposing 1st team defenses. theres no question he should be behind gore
No, he definately needs all the reps he can get, but I still would prefer he gets Gore-type reps and only plays the 1st quarter, rather than him being in there for basically the whole game. It's obvious he doesn't quite have the nfl conditioning just yet and players who get tired, get sloppy, and that leads to people getting hurt. I just dont want to see him being our pre-season workhorse and then getting worn down at mid-season or hurt anytime before that... if we lose dixon we have no other capable runner behind him. MRob is much better as a receiving running back, and he can probably get 3 yards at a time, but he doesnt have the ability to break anything open.
