I think we keep Hollings, Morency and Davis at back. If Wells can't make a spot at FB he's going to be toast.

Hollings 4 rushes for 11 yards. 2.8 avg
Davis 7 rushes for 20 yards. 2.9 avg
Morency 10 rushes for 26 yards. 2.6 avg

so what? I know what I see by my eyeballs. Wells loafed thru huge holes and was slow and plodding. Morency has the worst avg but was easily the most explosive back on the field last night...from either team. Hollings had that big screen pass and can make something happen at 3rd and long. Wells is slow, not elusive, but can take a hit and fall forward well.

He needs to develop a bit more patience, let his blocks develop, make his cut, and move thru the hole. In time, I think he has starters talent. Right now, I see him 3rd or even 4th on the depth chart with the talent we have now at RB.
Actually, Dom said some similar things in his after the game press conference. Your saying he's not ready, not that he doesn't have talent. The same could be said of Mathis. He has a lot of talent, but he's not ready, yet. But he might be closer to being ready than Morancy.

Morency is MUCH closer to a complete player at his position than Mathis. At RB he just needs to adjust to a zone blocking scheme. Mathis has a ton of stuff to work out. Ibar you sure have a ton of opinions for a guy who didn't watch the game.

Wells will make the team. no doubt about it. slow, yes, but can fall forward and pick up yards where another guy would be driven back. he holds onto the ball, and is versatile. caught a nice pass, but the defender was right with him and took him down immediately.

Capers likes Wells versatility and work ethic. They like Morancy too, but I think Hollings is the more likely candidate for the axe.

We'll see. If he makes the team it will be due to special teams only. I have a pretty good eye for talent.

i don't know about Wells just making the team because of special teams. if morency and hollings are so much better, why was wells running with the first and second teams while hollings was running with 2nd and 3rd teams and morency with 3rd teams. i think capers gets to see alot more of wells than we see on tv and practice.

i agree with Vinny on Morency. He has an explosion that DD or Wells doesn't have. He needs to learn to get North and South. Honestly with DD and Wells I don't get that "take it all the way" feeling when they get into the open field.. that is what is needed to pressure the defense to get out of the Cover 2.. Granted it was one game but at this point.

of course I am not a scout or coach.

sometimes it is a misconception on the depth chart.. sometimes not. With Wells it is either he earned it or the coaches want to evaluate a player with 1st string talent around them and going against 1st string talent on the D

In YOUR opinion. It seems to me that you are in the minority as far as Wells is concerned.

Yep, and nothing wrong with that...but I do have a pretty good track history with my postings over the last 4 years here. I think I know what I talk of most of the time. Of course it's my opinion....der!

I use to be a wells hater. but after watching 3 seasons, he's been improving every season which is why i kinda like the guy now. sure he's not the fastest guy out there or the most explosive, but not all good running backs are. if you can overpower and runover defenders you can also be a running back.

I think Wells got the short end of the stick. Everybody thought he was just horrible in 2002 .. and it was unfair due to the OL being that bad.. DD came in and played with a little better OL in 2003 than what Wells had and yet people just marvel at DD.. When Well has played since 2002, his stats are comparible to DD with the same OL..I like JW. I just wish (with his size) he ran as hard as DD and punish people. and with that , I am not sure if he just got shell shocked being our line in 2002 or what.

When you get on Vinny's list you just have to have a thick skin. He can be wrong too. From everything we've heard from Capers he really likes Wells a lot. I don't think he's locked into Wells, but someone else will have to take the job away from Wells and there will not be that many opportunities to do so. Wells played well while he was in there.

I don't have a 'list' Ibar. I will counter arguments I don't agree with though.

Thanks for all the opinions I missed the game due to a satelite outage. No more trips to Tulsa during football season! Sounds like good news for the most part except Wiegert.
