its also a TE issue as well people we give the play away with the personnel we line up because niether TE could block and catch well, they had to come in and out which tipped defenses off what the playcall was going to be.

We need a TE that can play 85% of the plays so that defenses are less clued into what play we are calling.

When Miller was out there it was a large chance we would pass I think our line is ok but we need to disguise playcalling with 1 base personnel formation. that means a TE that can both block and catch the pass. Then we will run better and AJ won't be doubled because what may look like a run play was actually play action and now AJ is 1 on 1 with a corner because the safety cheated into the box or bit on the fake. when miller was out there safeties were not going to bite because miller isnt out there for run plays.

DD runs harder than Wells can't argue that.

but based on averages.. and being people are not high on Wells..give Wells the 302 carries that DD had.. well that means based on Wells 3.6 yards a carry.. he would have 1087 yards last season... compared to Dd's 1188 .... not much difference between the two...

I am not saying Wells is great or DD is bad (dd catches the ball very well and deserves the starting spot).. I am just putting in perspective that not much is different between the two...

Wells could get a 1000 yards (based on averages) out of this offense

Isn't Wells like 5 feet taller than DD?? And a north/south rusher?

where do these stats come from? I'm not questioning them, just wondering where to find stats broken down like that. I haven't even tried looking for them, but it made me curious...

Wells is a bigger back but is only a south runner... Once he gets to the line he turns his back to the defenders and drops like a brick. He did have like 2 good games last year tho, Ill give him that.

Yes he could. I believe that says as much about the blocking last season as it does about the running backs.

If you go to any of the sports sites like NFL.com, ESPN.com, etc. they have stats for the players. There are usually buttons for situational stats and/or split stats.

For example: Yahoo-splits

Situational stats
