    NOT SO FAST Wondering why so many think Lamar Miller is a lock to start?

    I'm not saying that he didn't look impressive at times this past season. He did. I'm not even saying that he shouldn't start this year. What I'm saying is that Daniel Thomas had more carries, more yards, and more Touchdowns last year than Miller did. Lets compare. Daniel Thomas had 91 carries for 325 yards and 4 Touchdowns. Lamar Miller had 51 carries for 250 yards and 1 Touchdown. Granted Miller had less fumbles and more yards per carry. I'm just not sure why people think Miller is a lock to start. I don't think he is a lock at all. If I was a bettin man I would think that they would pretty much be splitting carries next year ( assuming we don't sign or draft someone better ). So tell me. Why is Miller such a lock? Just wondering

    Daniel Thomas is a big man who tries to run like he's a 175 lbs, guy is so scared of contact is ridiculous. Besides, miller has the skill set, patience and explosion you want in this offense.

    My feeling was that Thomas was getting carries last year because they were trying to force him into being the rb Ireland was hoping he drafted. He clearly isnt. I won't be surprised if Jonas gray takes over daniels carries in all honesty.

    I agree, kind of looking forward to seeing what Gray can do. As for Miller, maybe we can't be positive that Miller will be able to handle the premier RB position, but as a Rookie, in limited time last year, he was everything you can ever expect from a rookie, and more.

    I want to see what Gray can bring to the running game. Thomas is a big let down IMO for a rb we traded up for.

    Ummm...Because Bush will probably not be back and Daniels can't stay on the field (and has a slight case of the "sucks")

    "the sucks " haha. I honestly like Miller more but I think Thomas is overly hated on FinHeaven. He has not been that bad. He's battled some injuries and I think that has slowed his progress . I have not given up on him yet. I hopes he shows us something this year.

    Thomas can't hold onto the football, he gets 1.5 less yards per carry and he can't stay healthy.

    Lamar Miller is the future of this team at running back. Thomas will likely get cut.

    I doubt Thomas gets cut, especially if we don't hold on to Bush. It's also way to early to start claiming Miller as " the future " ......but I hope you're right none the less.

    I should add that I'm expecting them to do what Ireland does and grab someone who he can ride for 2 years. Mike Goodson, Chris Ivory, that type of guy. Then you cut D Thomas, bring in Jonas Gray as your #3. Miller and Goodson split carried 60/40, then youve got Jonas Gray spelling any tired/injured guy.

    I wouldn't hate that running back group to be honest.
