That said, do any of you remember that prior to concerns about his shoulder Lamar Miller was considered the second best back in the draft behind Richardson and ahead of Martin. Lamar Miller is our answer. His learning curve has been slow and that has kept him off the field but once he learns the offense and his assignments I have little doubt in his ability to be a stud. Think Bush, only faster, more decisive and with 20 extra pounds.
    What frustrated me about Sparano and unfortunately Philbin as well is they hold the "playmakers" back because of they are weak at doing something fundamental. I'm not advocating undisciplined players but when I see every Miller touch seemingly go for 7 yards with quickness and power it pisses me off that he isn't brought in enough because "isn't a great blocker". If the zone blocking scheme is based on quick cuts and upfield movement why are we messing around with disco dance Bush? He'd rather do that damn wait behind the guard thing and reverse field for a four yard loss than take three yards. Idc if teams can key off what we are doing because of personnel.. ultimately matchups win the fight. If Thomas is the best blocker bring him in for the pass plays to block/be security... teams will still have to respect his ability as a skill player. I feel like this is an issue with Matthews too. I feel like there is something like "he doesn't block downfield well enough" that is holding him back from being in the lineup where he can be a valuable part of the pass offense. Train these players on fundamentals but ultimately let them succeed at what they do best. I suppose this is frustration from watching other teams today... little bit of a rant.

    No, we need OL ZBS specialists to open holes. We gotta ****can long and richie and eventually jerry. We should have the money for an OL FA and can draft another high. A good part of the equation that goes into making foster look so beastly is the superb blocking he gets. Reggie could dominate behind that line too.

    If Reggie saw an open hole he would still dance instead of taking it up it for 5 yards. Watching him so far this season that what I've been led to believe. He is too interested in running laterally not vertically.

    Guys, as awesome as Doug Martin is, that offense does have Vincent Jackson, Mike Williams, Dallas Clark, Arrelious Benn, etc.
