Usually, when a team is looking to trade a player, they dont play them much so they don't get injured. last night, even though almost all of the starters played the first half, reggie was taken out after the first series. Isnt it strange that thomas took most of the 1st team snaps, and reggie barely played even though all the other starters played the whole half?
Daniel Thomas showed that he can be a starting RB last night. he took advantage of every opportunity and got some great yards. steve slaton looked like a dynamite pass catcher out of the backfield and played well all night. we all know what lamar miller can do, with his speed and strength, while marcus thigpen is making a case to stay on the team with his pass catching and return ability.
The packers offense never used speedy RBs, they never even tried to get them. the packers offense was built off of short, horizontal passes and bruising runs that open up the deep pass.
The Colts current starter is Donald brown, not exactly the best backup plan for andrew luck. theyd love to get someone like bush to help out luck, and the dolphins have a lot of depth at the RB position. The only major loss i see from this is the loss of Reggie's leadership, but i think tannehill may replace him to be alongside dansby and long as captain. tannehill's leadership has already drawn praise.
Last night, it was painfully obvious that our WR corps is the worst in the NFL. all of our WRs other than davone Bess were absolute garbage. Hartline should be ready to go by the next preseason game, and his return shoudl help (love him or hate him, you cant argue he is better than any WR on our roster not named davone bess), but even hartline wont solve the problem. bringing someonelike reggie wayne in, however, could solve the issue. Wayne is a legit number 1 WR, and gives a reliable 1-2-3-4 WR corps with Wayne, bess, hartline and either naanee, pruitt or whoever else makes it. Not only can we pull in wayne with this deal, but we could also bring in a draft pick, maybe a 2nd or 3rd rounder, which would really set this franchise up for a bright future. and anyone who thinks wayne isnt the WR he used to be or that he was just a product of peyton manning, the dude had 900 yds last year with curtis painter throwing to him, CURTIS PAINTER!
