So far You are correct.
Proof that highlight reels mean jack.
Yep! I think for every highlight reel that’s put out a lowlight reel should be put out too. It would definitely temper expectations.
Exactly. I've been saying this.
i like his cut and find the hole ability. we could have two backup gems.
I'd still like to see them bring in a solid, dependable vet. And I really hope Durant makes it impossible for the Steelers to leave him off the regular season roster.
Or we could have two practice squad RBs, they can move on from Edmunds at RB.
I am personally no fan of his running ability either. However, the fact that he has far more uses than merely just running the football proves he has worth on an NFL Roster. If this had not been the case, Pittsburgh should have dumped him over a year ago and just rolled with an FA via the end of the preseason.
Agree. The perfect role for Snell is exactly that. A core special teamer who can play RB if needed. He should be safe on the roster, but at the bottom of the depth chart at RB. We need an upgrade as the #2 RB behind Harris. Ballage Was underwhelming. McFarland is just flat out ineffective every time he touches the ball.
I have no idea if Durant is that guy. He seems very skinny, and too lacking in power, to carry an NFL workload between the tackles. I suppose he could potentially be a 3rd down back while we also have a 1st and 2nd down back, and back up Harris by committee.
pass protection will have to come to play as well for our RB's. this is where many rookies struggle.
