Should it be Glenn or Porter? Our history the last several years tells me Glenn is mostly warm to hot, but can be very cold in games, especially big games (playoffs). With history as our witness and the current team profile, it appears the odds are really against us winning consecutuve playoff games....ending in the Cup.
Porter has shown flashes over his 4 years here and yes he can run. Dang if Glen would run more ( even just 3 or 4 times more per game) than it would be a positive benefit to the dimensions of our attack related to the defensive schemes and positioning we're up against. Specifically...it could just be a D-man leaning in, lining up a certain way, or executing a play in a subconscious reaction to that threat that might develop with Glenn running. I would tend to lean toward the side that, that is a good thing for our Offence in the overal scheme of things.
But Glenn doesn't do it. Why? We know he's not fast. (Saw that again today on his one run....I remmeber his last year in the Peg, where he used to get clobbered and hurt alot when he ran. So, I don't mind the early slides.). We know he's not elusive. But, we also know he doesn't have the quick release of a Danny Mac. So run Glenn run. Slide a few yards early like today, but look to runnnnn more.
Brings me to my next point. Glenn is not the quick releaser that Danny Mac was. Porter appears even worse in that area. That is why I'm not sold on putting Porter in as a starter. He sits in the pocket way too long and either gets hits or has to scramble.
Work on the quick release in practice Kahari! With both QB's, all receivers and the X's and O'x. Time the QB's and count % of completions. Then make a decision. Something has to give here.
