Consistency when referring to production all depends on what type of run was called, when it was called, and what down it was called on.
Frank is by far the superior player and IMO probably shouldn't be compared to the guy who backs him. Not yet atleast. As if there was ever really a question as to who is more consistent. Frank is a beast and as I stated before the season started, he'll end up gettin MORE yards than last season on less carries and is still on pace to do that if I'm not mistaken.
Again, like I said the other day:
- I want to keep Frankie for as long as possible. So, I want to reduce his carries. And so, I'm arguing that we lose nothing in running or pass-catching with Hunter (maybe even pick up a bit with receiving skills).
- As far as blocking goes - yes Hunter needs to get better. But he didn't cost us a 50 yard pass to Crabtree with a CHOP BLOCK either.
- Hunter is much better at catching screen passes, which helps in pass protection.
- Also, Hunter is a VERY GOOD pass protector.
