I feel like he is a great #2 back. When DD is out, I have no problem having wells step in. He seems to always get the job done.

I mean, was that a great stretch over the goal line or what?!

I like Wells as our #2 also. We really wasted our 3rd round pick this year on Morency. Some OL names available when we selected Morency:

Richie Incognito C
Evan Mathis G
Adam Snyder G
Dan Buenning G
Chris Colmer T
Trai Essex T
Ray Willis T
and plenty more went later.

If we hadn't traded for P-Burnt Marcus Johnson and Khalif Barnes were available in the 2nd when we would have picked. This current coaching staff has squandered way too many oportunities to build an OL. Last year we traded for Babin and we could have had Jake Grove C with our 2nd round pick without moving up and kept our picks. The Titans picked Jacob Bell in the 5th round.

Better DBs were available in the offseason than PBurnt and less was given for them. LBs too.

Im a fan of Wells, they always had something positive to say about him during the off season, pre season and during the season. He works his butt off which is why I saw the draft of Morency as a total waste pick because with DD as the main guy, Wells able to fill in and fit into that "punish them" role like the Bus and Hollings for the change of pace, faster guy, I thought we had a decent backfield to survive.

Good guy, hope he gets some playing time and gets more cred with the fans.

I hope Wells eventually earnes a starting role as a fullback. I would like him to split time 60-40 with Davis. And I hope we keep him long enough for another team to see how good he is and if he is never given the job here I hope he earns it with a good team, anybody but the Jags or 'boys.

Were it not for the Morency pick, we would have Hollings as our 3rd HB. Now, do we really want that ?
Imagine us having the same problems at HB as Green Bay has had. They're currently using their 4th and 5th HB due to injuries.

It took Wells 4 years to start playing better maybe Hollings will do the same.

I was really pretty excited to hear in the preseason that Wells might be getting more time at FB, in the mold of an Alstott-type player. Wells has good hands out of the backfield, has gotten over his dancing issue, and has shown he can carry the rock. He's also a better pass protector than DD is, IMO. Why this hasn't happened, I don't know.

Hmm ... complete, maybe. I don't know. Wells seems to be a better blocker, for sure. Their receving skills may be comparable, though we certainly have a larger sample size with DD. As for the bruiser thing, I can go either way. To me, I don't care what kind of build a guy has, or how big he is, or whether he's a speedster or bruiser or something in between. All I care about is results. DD reminds me a lot of Emmitt Smith. He's not the biggest and not the fastest, but he has running back qualities like vision and instinct. He also has good enough power to break through many tackles and is agile enough to avoid big hits. I think DD could be great if he were behind a better O-line. As is, he's doing pretty well.

You all seem to forget that this year, The Oline is in zone blocking better and with that, Wells is doing better. Before, he didnt have holes to hit, so we couldnt see what he can do. Now, he is getting better and has area to run.
