    Default Battle should start over Jones

    Nice to get a win today, but Jones is just too old to do anything with this o line. Battle looked good today with the few carries he got. Battle can actually get yardage unlike Jones who just falls down at the line. I believe Battle is a much better fit with this sub par O line. It is obvious why he should be playing instead of Jones. I don't see Haley doing this though. Your thoughts.
    It starts with the Offensive line

    I have been very unimpressed with Jones.
    Give Battle a shot. When they needed one first down to end the game, Battle picked it up.

    If you run Battle too much, he'll break down, and quickly. You're better off using him to pass block and get five or so touches a game for the hard yards. Don't break him by trying to turn him into a primary runner. He's a glorified FB, not a RB.

    He has many battle scars from the battles he's waged on special teams.

    Agreed, but more Battle isn't the answer either. They need to get a FA RB.

    And today just proved why. Amazing performance by Battle. Over 100 yards at 6.3 YPC. Jones actually looked good as well. Limit Jones' carries and give Battle most the load. Don't overwork either.

    I think the big key right now, is that opposing defenses know that we are coming into each game determined to establish the running game early, and, only once the passing game is opened up, are they having to play honest.

    Hopefully, our staff will come out of the BYE with a better gameplan to start games.

    We really have been struggling to start out games.

    We need to start each game like we are already down by 17 points!

    It's amazing that we have had certain plays and certain things in the offense that have worked throughout the season but we wait till we are down to start doing them.
