    Yes, Najee is injured and has been all year. But it's undeniable the running game is improving when ANYONE other than Najee runs the ball. I say shelve Najee until he is 100% again (even if it means IR the rest of the year) and use all our other runners.

    McFarland and Snell weren't even on the team a week ago and both looked significantly better than Najee.

    When Warren is back he should be RB1. McFarland/Snell at RB2 and 3 or in the reverse order.

    Keep pounding all 3.

    3rd and 1 should never be missed again.

    What’s that have to do with the game in it’s entirety?

    I think Najee would of went over the century mark in the contest had he not left with injury.

    I think injuries are affecting his play for sure.

    But Snell and McFarland looked like fresh legs no doubt.

    I heard Kenny say something is the post game interview something like
    "Now that I have more of the playbook to work with.." something like that.

    I think we are just seeing a team that is allowed to audible now.

    You miss the last two games, Benny? Our running game has been improving, period. But the last two games (NO and Cincy), it's 40 carries for 189 yards. Y0u've been pushing to trade him for weeks now, and now that he's actually the running back we wanted when we drafted him, you think he should be benched.

    So a guy who hasn't played meaningful ball in over a year and one that has only seen special teams duty after an undrafted rookie became a favorite of the coach have success against a team that probably didn't even consider them a threat to play let alone as much as they did and you come here with this weak sauce. Hopefully this continues so that we can have you bumping this thread over and over again. by the way Fitzgerald Toussant says hey and wants to know if he can get a carry.

    Snell has been on the team all year as RB3 :shrug:, none of those guys are good as Najee.

    Loved the rotations of all 3 back in the 1st half.

    I don't know why they went all Benny in the 2nd half. What happened to McFarland?

    I am not a Snell fan but I think it has been pretty undeniable that the other running backs have had more success than Najee. I agree he is playing injured. Use all of them.

    Harris is obviously not 100%. I don't think he's been healthy all season. It would be stupid to trade him at this point.

    I think Najee is not good running out of the shotgun formation. I think he is by far the best back on the team, but we arent playing to his strengths. Just my opinion.....

    The BU's hit the holes hard and fast Monday for very decent 1st down yardage. Maybe it's not completely on the OL? :shrug:

    I think he is on record saying he prefers running with a full back.
