who do u think is going to be our staring running back this year ?
Jesse Lumsden at RB
Julian Radlein at FB
Corey Holmes at slot back/Running Back/utility guy
Well I do like Corey Holmes but i think he should be used more at slotback then Running back, I dont think he is that great coming out of the back field but is still one of the top players in the league
so at Running Back i have to go with Jesse Lumsden
And no offense to him but i dont think Anthony Davis is that great
Well, Lumsden...on paper, barring injury. Holmes will get time in the slot this year, so you will see both men on the field at the same time a lot (even when both start in formation in the backfield).
Expect Holmes to be used a la Thomas Haskins when Taaffe coached Haskins in Montreal. Holmes should catch a lot of balls from HB and SB this year.
Running backs by committee may be one way to look at it, but I really think Jesse can emerge this year.
Anthony Davis when healthy should prove to be a very interesting complement to the big two.
Oski Wee Wee,
interseting i belive that in the gun they will use holmes in the slot and run a to back set with davis and lumsden
Depending on the opposition,Some D,s cover the run better than others, But some are more focused on pass cover, ie- The Args. They have the best pass cover d in the Cfl , But they dont protect against the runnung attack, re(Davis set team record for 1 game yards vs args)-- So against a D like the Args imo go with a 3back set Lumsden ,Holmes,Davis!!!
This team has the perfect blend for a jumbo pkg. strong,weak,counter,screen,option,play action... a linebackers nightmare! Nice call destruction.
