Great Running Back Debate:  Speed back vs Power Back vs Slasher Back

 

You get 1 football 40 carries who is getting most of them?

I'm going Estime when I vote because I want people to get tired of tackling him by the 4th quarter. 

There are no wrong answers.

Let the Debate Begin...

I think most carries is entirely dependent on how a game is going and also based on the opponent.  I would love to see a mix of all three during a game ala ND '88-'93ish.  Nothing pleases me more than watching a Bettis type RB beat the shit out of a D in the 4Q!

I believe with Buchner's running ability, these backs and the running back coach and the O-line Coach it be a shame not to run the ball alot.

Agree.  And I love a good run game, but we also got to get the passing going too.  I'm a little concerned about Buchner and injuries, he doesn't take the slide option and will try and lower his shoulder fir more yards.  While I really appreciate that mindset and competitiveness, he has to take care of himself.  Book was really good at getting out of bounds on a run, we need that level of awareness and style.  With the talent at RB we think we have, utilize them moreso than Buchner.

Yup. I hope they are smart and run the QB at the edges(zone read) instead of like a fullback in power read. I'd much rather the QB have the opton to go out of bounds or take on a corner then being Tim Tebow like against bbig linebackers and defensive lineman. Let Estime(same size as LBs) deal with the LB's. If I were Rees I'd make it a play-action type passing game and mix some RPOs so he doesn't hold the ball very long, the quicker he releases it the less likely for big hits.

Love the entire running back room but still having shellshock from too many years of RBs who go lateral and can’t turn it upfield. I like the slasher for the ability to find a hole and get there.
