Default Ogbonnaya Ogbonnaya Ogbonnaya Ogbonnaya Ogbonnaya

Chris Ogbonnaya #27 - pronounced 'O - bo - ny - a' (the G is silent!) Get used to it, because he should be around this season. Practice by saying it 5 times fast!

Experience: 2nd season - Previously with the Rams
Age: 25
Born: 5/20/1986
Hometown: Houston, TX
Height: 6-0
Weight: 225
College: Texas

I think this guy will wind up as our short yardage RB and Slaton will be cut. He showed he was capable of doing everything necessary out there last night. He blocked a few times, he didn't drop any passes, and he showed some power on a few runs. He doesn't have the top end breakaway speed that Foster possesses, but I think he has other tools that we have lacked in our RB corps. He looked tough out there and I think we will see a lot more of him in the next few weeks. It's obvious Slaton's future isn't getting better any time soon, so I think it's best for the team to move on to Ogbonnaya who has yet to reach his potential.

Default Re: Ogbonnaya Ogbonnaya Ogbonnaya Ogbonnaya Ogbonnaya

I know it wasn't all Chris' fault, but our running game sucked last night. I'm going to re-watch the game again but it seemed like the ZB was not looking very sycronized. Maybe it's just me. It just seemed like the oline would end up in a big pile and Obi would run into the pile then attempt to break outside.

On another note, Vickers will be our starting FB come opening day. Casey did ok but Vickers did better.

He was just as good as Slaton out of the backfield, but he could also pick up a blitz and block. Seeing as how Slaton has no value to the team since he's not returning kicks anymore they might as well get rid of him.

I did not see anything from him as runner that excites me. Was better at catching passes, but overall game was very JAGlike. If everybody is healthy I don't see him on the final 53.

Default Re: Ogbonnaya Ogbonnaya Ogbonnaya Ogbonnaya Ogbonnaya

As much as one would want to praise Ogbonnaya for playing almost the entire game, he wasn't worked to death running. He only carried 17 times in total........and put up 2.2 Yds per carry. His 15 yd longest run itself would have accounted for almost 1 yd per carry.......and total yds rushing was only 37........a good part of that against 2nd and 3rd Ds. To his credit, he did manage 67 yds in 6 receptions.......but one accounted for 29 yds of that. He was the best we had last night. I would hope that we do not think that this gives him any semblance of a "proven" factor. Maybe he will develop. But excitement based on last night is a little over the top.

In his defense the 2nd string o-line was not good and the 3rd string line was awful. I can't remember a carry in the 2nd half where he got the handoff and didn't get hit at the line.

Receiving 6-67yards with a long of 29 had 1 rush 1 receiving TD I recorded the game going to watch it again tonight maybe im missing something?

He didnt light it up rushing but he did everything else right - Especially pass protection and recieving.

Averaging 2.2 yards a carry shouldn't be worthy of starting an Ogbonnaya thread... At best he will give Ben Tate a run for the 3rd RB job.

There is an Ogbonnaya thread near the top of the board. No reason to start another.

Default Re: Why all the love for Ogbonnaya?

I think they only keep three backs don't they? If they only keep three, that'll be Foster, Tate and Ward. If they keep four, it'll be between Obbonnaya and Slaton. Last year they only kept three, four if you include Leach at the halfback position.

Slaton and Ogbonnaya could both be gone by the end of preseason. I know Slaton isn't eligable for the practice squad, I don't know if Ogbonnaya is or not though.

Our zone blocking usually gets better as the season progresses, seemed just like early preseason rust to me.

He came in. He did what he needed to do. He didn't run the ball all that well but he did make some catches out of the backfield and he did block.

For me, he's JAG. Gotta hand it to him for his heart, and I hope he ends up on the PS.

Everyone roots for the local kid to do well.

And it's not his fault that the other backs were in street clothes and didn't make any plays. Doesn't mean that a 100 combo yards in the first pre-season game from a #5 on the RB depth chart isn't worth a slap on the back. No need to hate on the kid...

On NFL Live after the game, Trey Wingo kept pronouncing it "O-Bawn-Ya" (The last two syllables sounding similar to the Spanish word for bathroom). I can understand mispronouncing his name under some circumstances, but he should have just watched a broadcast where the name was being pronounced correctly (at least most of the time), and it was a piss-poor guess regardless of the circumstances.
