He could be affective in that sence, but I haven't seen Kubiak use any RB's that way so I don't have any reason to feel confident that they will all of a sudden get real creative with passes to the RB. Is it because we have had really bad ones under Kubiak? Possibly, but I dunno.
I hope you're right, and he makes all kinds of plays but for right now thinking objectively I just don't see it. I was never that impressed with him in college, and he didn't really seem to improve from his sophmore season to his Junior season either.
I think that Kris Brown would have some potential in this scheme, but how long will it be before he's on injured reserve?
DD comes to mind when I see Slaton. This time around we have enough talent on offense that we wont kill Slaton and rely on him for 45% of our offensive production.
I don't think any of our RB's are going to get the ball 20-25 times. I still don't think Green makes it to opening day, but even so, Brown, Taylor, and Slaton, there is going to be enough ball for everyone.
