I would think that not wanting to wear Charles down would also be a consideration in not having him run the ball as much. He's still gonna get plenty of touches whether he runs the ball or catches it out of the backfield. Our offense was ranked 5th in rushing last year, but dead last in the NFL in passing. Having a more balanced attack should make our offense less predictable and that can only help the team overall. I want to see longer sustained drives this year so our defense gets more rest and doesn't wear down at the end of games.
For the first time in years we can be llegitimately excited for the season to start and actually expect to have a good season. Question is what is defined as a good season? Considering we were 2-14 last year. Anything better than 8-8 woukd be good but think we could push for a wildcard spot..
So I am at camp with my boys. Flowers made a great pick 6. On that play both tamba and houston rushed at the right side forcing alex to throw quick and flowrs just read it beautiful
Well I tried to post from Camp but my phone does not like the sun. One thing I noticed right off. While practicing in the morning is nice as far as weather goes, the grass still has dew on it. Lots of players were slipping or running scared of slipping.
I saw Baldwin once. Most of the passes went to the running backs. Bowe got a fair share as did many other receivers but Baldwin was crickets in a garage. You knew he was there but where...... I would not be shocked to see him cut.
Fisher did struggle. Brandon Albert is clearly a much better Tackle right now. Even though he got abused awefully against #62 Josh Martin. Maybe it was just the day but this kid looked impressive for a rookie.
While many want to bash Smith for dinking and dunking. He is very accurate with his throws and hits the runners in stride. Some times to Brandon Flowers but in stride none the less. While Daniels and Bray are accurate the offense didn't flow as much with them out there. Maybe that was the quality in the players they were throwing too. Stanzi looked just as lost as last year. I highly highly doubt he is still on this team after the first cuts.
My boys got lots of autographs. The first was from Austen Lane, who worked on the sideline all day with an injury of some sort. Man the guy will make you feel insecure. He is a very big guy. Andy Reid also signed for a couple of minutes but he picked my little 4 year old out of the group and went to him first. Gotta love it when they make an impression on the kids.
So was that pick by Flowers a bad throw/decision on Smith's part or a great play by Flowers?
