Lamar Miller Expectations

Don't get stuck on Prosch. I'm talking generally about carrying a FB. But I'm sure Sammie Coates' 1 tackle and 3 assists were irreplaceable. Vonta and other FBs have contributed more. Dirt cheap (5th round originally, $2 mil now) probowl FB Anthony Sherman got 12+ tackles on ST. Hell Jameel Cook had 5 with 2 forced fumbles in 2006.



Then get a good one.
Instead of maximize roster, OB seems to maximize versatility

I actually agree with you.

I just think Prosch wasn't worth keeping and certainly not worth the extension he got. (Thanks Ricky)

BOB keeping a WR/CB on ST's over Prosch certainly is low on the list of gripes I have with BOB.

I wouldn't have minded seeing Prosch replaced with a bowling ball... but that wasn't Prosch

We haven't had a quality FB or TE since Leach/Daniels. I put that on RS

All for it.

What I find interesting is that many of the high powered offenses still have a FB. They still run I and offset I formations. Look at the diversity of the offensive formations in this weekends playoff games.

I feel like Millers vision is steadily improving. He has cut back the past few weeks more than he has the past few years combined. Not sure if we are going away from power to more zone but he is seeing things better.
Like any back, he will benefit from a good line blocking for him.
Hopefully Texans draft or sign a road grader or two - preferably one on either side of the line.

I liked Fiedo, unfortunate what happened.

I can see putting drafting Prosch on RS... but not getting cut & re-signed, I’d have to put on BOB.
Fiedo never lived up to billing... he was supposed to be our blocking TE while Griffin was the receiving TE.

So you don’t think Fiedo was going to develop as a good all-around TE if he didn’t get the concussions?

To me, he was trending that way.
He was a better receiver than I expected, but a much poorer blocker. He was one of the highest rated blocking TE's coming out of college, and was expected to grow on that here, but he couldn't block worth a **** (flip?) either
